Division C

oscarius (Romans) beat Breogan (German/Gothic) 43 - 16

Standing out in particular was the performance of a legionary cohort that no man would describe as 'mediocre', breaking three warbands in a single turn. A short, fun and dramatic game that wouldn't have been out of place in a Hollywood movie.

Division C

Karvon (Germanic Horse Tribes with Dacian (Carpi) ally) defeated Breogan - (Germanic/Gothic Foot Tribes) 48-23 for a score of 4-0.

A long narrow ridge ran across the center of the Horse tribes area rising to a steeper hill on the right. A rather large woods nestled in the elbow of the hooking ridge. A smaller wood lay a bit in front of the ridge on the left.

We deployed a line of light archers along the ridge and a handful of light foot screening the edges of both woods. A small group of loose order warbands was hidden deep in the woods on the right. Our lancers we deployed hidden behind the long ridge, one division to the left and two to the right. A couple of skirmishing horse were hidden initially in each forest as well.

The German Foot Tribes deployed their close order warbands in a long line with a couple in reserve at each end of the line. A couple of horse guarded each flank and a few light foot screened each flank.

We used our lights and skirmishing foot to draw the Foot Tribes forward. We sent our left division of lancers out wide to threaten the advancing warband mass. The other two division shifted right behind the hill with the plan of enveloping the Foot Tribes left as they advanced past the left forest. The Foot Tribes line divided into three blocks; the right one swung to counter our threatening lancers, the center one pressed forward towards our skirmishing lights and horse, the left one wheeled to chase off our lights on the edges of the large forest. Their left flank horse advanced to deal with our light foot and horse we moved out onto the ridge to the left of the forest.

One of the left wing Foot warband chased our lights back into the trees where we then attacked them with a single hidden warband. The Foot sent more warbands in to assist which we then attacked in turn with other hidden warbands. As this battle developed, we unleashed our lancers hidden on the right which overwhelmed the opposing horse and flanked the embattled enemy warbands and supporting light foot. Our left wing lancers completed their long ride around the enemy right to help deal with the survivors with the right wing warbands trailing in pursuit

Weekly round-up
Division A has turned into a bit of a procession now after dkalenda (Palmyran) registered his seventh straight win this week. It is still mathematically possible for him to be overtaken by Nosy_Rat (Hunnic), or even ninth-placed nyczar (Ancient Briish), but it seems very unlikely that this will happen. It is more likely that Snugglebunnies (Jewish Revolt), who has finished his matches with 23 points, will still be holding on to his current second place at the end of the season. It is not yet a procession in Division B where XLegione (Arab City) has made a blistering start with 6 straight victories. paulmcneil (Ancient British) may yet pose a danger after winning his first 3 matches, but it is hard to see anyone else challenging for the promotion place. By way of complete contrast, Division C is still very much wide open. The top two, oscarius (Roman) and desertedfox (Indian) both have 4 wins but have very few matches remaining, whereas Najanaja (Roman) is probably in the best position right now with 3 wins from 4 starts. Division D is moving very slowly and MikeMarchant (Ancient British) is the current front-runner with 4 straight wins.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
dkalenda (Division A) 7 matches
Snugglebunnies (Division A) 4 matches and finished
paulmcneil (Division B) 3 matches
XLegione (Division B) 6 matches
oscarius (Division C) 3 matches
MikeMarchant (Division D) 4 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 25 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 18 out of 45 matches completed :|
Division C - 23 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 15 out of 45 matches completed :cry:

Division A and Division C have good match completion rates, but Division D is very slow.

Player of the week
dkalenda (Division A) with 3 wins this week. :D

Division D

Bluefin (Alan) edges SawyerK (Pictish) 51-44 in a spirited match that ultimately ended in draw. I think we used every square in the battlefield as the battle continually shifted. Very fun!

Thanks for the game SawyerK

Division D

I don't know whether to report a win or a draw. My battle with Bluefin timed out, but the game reported a victory for me.

The scores were: 55/38. I had 10 warband, a couple of legionary units and a chariot left, while Bluefin had 5 cavalry asnd 2 light horse. I just couldn't catch him to finish him off.

I think the rules say a game that times out is a draw, and I'm happy with that - it was an epoc battle, and many thanks to Bluefin for it.


Best Wishes

Mike

(Yes, it is a draw. stockwellpete)

Division D

SawyerK (Pictish with Scots) defeated Garokan (Roman with Arab) by 49 to 22.

This was a hard fought match with the Picts relying on a patch of rough ground on their left flank to hold that side of battle while their right flank fought and won through a mixture of legionnaires, allies and cavalry.

Division A

a draw:
klayeckles (arab) 58 harveylh (roman) 43

romans, seeing the large cavalry arm of the arabs chose to take a defensive position with heavy woods on both flanks. The arabs began a long process of marching to the furthest corners of the map in an attempt to find a gap in the roman flanks. Battles broke out in the woods with both sides seeing some success. then the arabs finally got a single lancer into the rear of the romans. Soon gaps were opening and romans were charging forward in hopes of defeating the arab center before things completely fell apart. As night was falling it looked like the arab lancers might crash into the roman rear while others were threatening the flanks. but the romans found the rally horn and managed to convince a few routing troops to stay for the fight...night fell just in time to save the roman army...but Augustus would not be throwing any victory feasts. GG! another fun fight.

Division B

devoncop (Moorish 350AD) drew with Sunnyboy (Huns) .............0-0

The Moors being the best possible cannon fodder for Hunnic mobility and archery prowess the Moorish General decided the plentiful woodland in the SW corner of the battlefield was hugely inviting and the Huns decided such terrain was less than ideal for their horses and a draw was agreed withing a few turns.
