Division D

MikeMarchant (Ancient British 60 BCE-80 CE - Allies: Roman 24-196) defeated SawyerK (Pictish 210-476 AD with Scot-Irish 50 BC-476 AD ally): 60/50

This was a really lucky one which fell to me on the penultimate turn.

A large rough hill with difficult slopes dominated the centre of the field, and as my Brits advanced past it to the right hand side, the Picts swarmed up its slopes to camp on top. My chariots and cavarly went the opposite way round and quickly encircled the hill. With chariots and cavarly in place to prevent or hinder the Picts escape, my infantry formed up to face the narrow side on the right. Meanwhile, my lights had pretty much destroyed the Pict lights, giving me a decent lead on the score.

I knew I would be at a disadvantage attacking up the hill, but the gamble I took was that my infantry would have a bad time of it and back off, dragging the Picts down with me. It wasnt to be. I did have a bad time of it, but my troops refused to back off. I was losing warabnd fast, and when my two Roman lefgionary units broke I thought I would fleeing the field before long.

Fortunately, the lead I had from the early skirmishing held, and my chariots dashed left right and cetnre attacking isolated Pictish units. Late in the game there was little left but scattered units, except for a small knot of Picts still on the hill, but badly bruised, which my lights stormed. With the lead still mine, though marginally, and the final turn looming, it was my lights who pulled off an incredible coup, routing a pair of disrupted Picts to push sawyer's army over the 60% cliff edge.

All the credit for this narrow victory goes to my lights, but with an honourable mention to my chariots for creating mayhem.

A great game sawyer, and I thank you for it. It really ought to have been a drw and you didn't deserve to lose it at the last.


Best Wishes

Mike

A massacre, due mostly to some spectacularly bad dice rolling by the Jews.

Karvon (Germanic Horse Tribes with Dacian ally) drew vs Najanaja (Roman 24 BC–196 AD with German Foot Tribes ally) 36-9 for a 2-0 score.

The Romans retreated into a heavily forested corner on their right flank. We managed to kill off a few skirmishers and eventually broke thru in a couple of points, but night fell before w could further exploit the situation.

Division C

Karvon (Germanic Horse Tribes with Dacian ally) drew vs GDod (Jewish Revolt) 57-37 for a 2-2 draw.

A long swirling battle in which our lancers started out threatening the enemy right, then redeploying and punching thru the enemy center supported by some initially hidden warbands. As the sun was setting we finally broke the Jews only to see them rally enough units to pull out the draw as the last light left the field.

Congratulations dkalenda!

Anyway, Division A

Geffalrus (Byzantines) defeats harveylh (Roman) 62-37. Good game harvey, that was a hell of a match.

This was an absolutely terrible map for the Byzantines with their focus on cavalry and heavy infantry. The Roman spawn zone had a giant mountain in its center, and much of the rest of the map had streams, marshland, and large rough patches. The Byzantine cavalry wept to see it. Lacking more than a couple medium foot units (of low quality), the Byzantines ceded much of the field to the Romans who advanced bravely down from their mountain. With flanking maneuvers largely out of the question, the Byzantines put their hopes and prayers in 4 units of dismounted lancers and the belief that they could resist the Roman legionary foot. Their prayers were answered. The impact phases passed without disaster, and the superior offensive spears went to work stabbing the legionaries to death. Some units of mounted lancers snuck through to charge the supporting ballistae and flank the engaged legions. The auxiliary forces in the rough ground counterattacked against the Comitanesis and Limitanei, while the Roman cavalry moved around the flanks. The Byzantine regular infantry held out just long enough for the un-engaged Byzantine cavalry units to outflank the Roman cavalry and roll up the infantry in the open. The Byzantine commander was extremely lucky that enough Roman units were caught out in the open to reach 60%, as the auxiliaries and archers in the rough ground were basically untouchable.

You can clearly see the battle line outlined by the bodies piled in the open ground between the rough ground.

Division D

rs2excelsior (Byzantine) beat gamercb (Roman) 51-24

A battle once again dominated by an open field. The Romans deployed in a fairly standard formation, with their infantry in the center and cavalry on each flank. The Byzantines placed their infantry in a forest on their right, held back from the main fighting, and their lancers in three lines on the left, screened by heavy and light horse archers. The Byzantine left wing pressed forward early, the archers harassing the Roman foot, while the first two lines of lancers wrapped around the Roman right wing cavalry. The Roman's left cavalry wing was pushing forward, so the third line wheeled around to screen the main cavalry force from being outflanked. The Byzantine left managed to see off the Roman cataphracts and other cavalry pretty quickly due to some flank attacks, and turned to meet the main line of infantry, while the third line cavalry was running into some trouble against the remaining Roman cavalry and part of the infantry wing. I committed the legio comitatensis from their hiding place in the woods, hitting the Romans in the flank and turning the tide of that battle. Although the Byzantine left could not make much progress against the plumbata-armed Roman foot, they harassed the Romans with arrow fire while the breakthrough on the Byzantine right pushed the scores over the 25% lead needed to win.

A screenshot of the battle showing the zig-zagging battle line, just after the Roman's right flank cavalry had been seen off and the Byzantine infantry committed against the Roman left.
