Division C

edb1815 (Thracian w Antigonid ally) defeated Dzonvejn (Saka w Seleucid ally) 43%-16%

GG - Well played by my opponent. Several nicely placed hills helped the masses of medium infantry and having an elephant really was key against the cataphracts.

Division D

rs2excelsior (Roman) beat GeneralKostas (Lysmachid) 54-29.

After suffering defeats in Carthage and Thrace, the legion was eager to redeem itself against Alexander's successor. Initially, the Romans deployed in a steep, narrow valley, with medium infantry covering the rough hilltops on either side. The Lysmachid phalanx deployed on a hilltop just outside of the range of Roman artillery, with their own medium foot and hoplites in the open ground to their right. As the Lysmachids showed no interest in advancing from their position after a couple of turns, the Romans made the first move and advanced obliquely to the left, hoping to engage and destroy the lighter enemy forces. The Romans pushed the Lysmachid left back, and the phalanx finally advanced off of the hilltop, harassed by Roman skirmishers.

The Roman and Lysmachid cavalry forces each made a wide flanking maneuver to the right. The Roman push was blocked by Thracian infantry in rough terrain. The Lysmachid horse were out of the fight for a while, but they sent off the Roman artillery and turned towards the legionnaires, now engaged to the front and flank. Despite being flank charged by Lysmachid lancers, the legions caught in the pincer fought like lions, refusing to budge even though outnumbered and outflanked. Though they eventually gave way, they bought time for the Romans to see off the other Lysmachid infantry, allow Roman troops to flank charge and break one of the phalanxes, and edge out enough of a lead to swing a Roman victory. The Legate is considering awards for many of the centurions and legionnaires of those cohorts.

The fight was decided by a confused scuffle right in the middle, with both sides getting outflanked. Despite a well-executed cavalry flanking maneuver, the Romans proved exceptionally resilient, surprising both of us in the amount of punishment they took without yielding. Well played to General Kostas, bad luck on your part (or good luck on mine) tipped this one. GG.

Weekly round-up
Snugglebunnies (Hannibal in Africa) has moved to the top of Division A after registering his fourth win of the season but still unbeaten Geffalrus (Antigonid) is just 2 points behind with 2 gaes in hand. Cunningcairn (Ptolemaic) and MikeC_81 (Roman) are further back but also have games in hand and may still be able to make a challenge. At the bottom MorkinTheFree (Pontic) has had a difficult start with 3 straight defeats. herm (Roman) is the new leader in Division B after his fourth straight win and his main challenger looks to be Morbio (also Roman) who has won his first 2 matches. Ulysisgrunt (Jewish) is struggling for the second season in a row with 4 straight defeats. In Division C early leader DzonVejn (Saka) has been pegged back with 2 defeats and now has a large group of players sitting behind him, all of whom have matches in hand. Schweetness101 (Hannibal in Africa) now looks odds-on favourite to win Division D after securing his seventh consecutive win this week, while GeneralKostas (Lysimachid) looks likely to end up with the wooden spoon after suffering his seventh defeat.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
Geffalrus (Division A) 5 matches
Snugglebunnies (Division A) 4 matches
herm (Division B) 4 matches
Schweetness101 (Division D) 7 matches

Division A

Geffalrus (Antigonids) defeats youngr (Italian Hill Tribes and Latins) 43-15

After a savage, inconclusive affair with the Samnites, the Antigonid Expeditionary Force decided to take out it's feelings of frustration on the local Italian Hill Tribes. Throwing caution to the wind, the Antigonids advanced through rough, hilly terrain intent on securing some sort of decisive victory. The hill tribes put together a large force of medium foot, with a sprinkling of hoplites, in an attempt to drown the Antigonids in bodies. Using a small lake to their advantage, the Antigonids massed their phalanx and cavalry on one flank, while a token force of skirmishers and infantry remained on the other to buy time. This maneuver allowed them to concentrate the bulk of their forces on a smaller portion of the Italian host and maximize the high POA of the pike unit. The Italians tried to shift around and come to the rescue of their fellows, but they could not march faster than the Antigonid combined arms force could murder isolated units of Italian Foot. The sarissa-armed meatgrinder rolled over unit after unit after unit, while the cavalry roamed free to rear charge at will.

Good game to my opponent.

The phalanx storms the hill, while the cavalry ride around the open flank.

Div D

SLancaster (Indo-Greek 175 BC-10 AD with Indian 500 BC- 319 AD allies) defeated rs2excelsior (Roman 105-25 BC). 64-47.

The quality of the Roman troops made it very tough at the start. Most of my centre line was crumbling around me. Fortunately, a nice flanking move with spears and elephants helped me out. It was tied until the very last turns. A hard fight indeed.

harveylh – Syracusan 280-211 BC with Carthaginian 235-146 BC ally defeats MorkinTheFree - Pontic 110-85 BC, 53-13

Tough game for the Pontics as a wide open battlefield helped the Greeks put pressure on both Pontic flanks.

Division D

vakarr with Classical Thracian 680-461 BC plus Classical Greek Allies beat SawyerK with Roman 199-106 BC army and Spanish allies 49-21.

The Thracians are celebrating another unlikely victory over the Romans, who fought hard and had started to crush the Thracian left flank when the game ended. The Thracians put their best infantry on the left, in open terrain (including all the heavy infantry). In the centre there was a patch of rough terrain. On the Thracian right was some open terrain backed by woods - here a massive force of Thracian cavalry was able to force its way through, while the Thracians won the battle in the centre. The Spanish foot failed to disrupt their Thracian opponents on any of their charges, perhaps showing how unwilling they were to fight for their imperialistic masters. This battle was weirdly like the battle fought simultaneously against the Carthginians with Syracusan allies, with a very similar terrain layout, except that in the latter battle everything that could go wrong for the Thracian cavalry did and everything that could go right for the Carthaginians (who also moved their troops well) also happened.

Division C

batesmotel (Romans) drew Karvon (Sarmatian) 15% (Roman) to 34% (Sarmatian)

Roman heavy and medium foot couldn't catch enough of the orbiting Sarmatian lancers and light foot so time ran out.
