Div C

lydianed (Ghaznavid) defeated GDod (Arab Conquest) 54:29

GDod brought along huge numbers of superior spears. The more nimble Ghaznavids took advantage of a large wooded area and patiently managed to spread the enemy line and achieve some key flanking moves. Really good game, well played GDod

Division B

melm (Andalusian 756-1049AD) beat Nijis (Byzantine 963-987AD) 50-19.

In 1600 pts army match, bow's effectiveness actually increases as player can deploy more bow unit and concentrate them somewhere to loose havoc. Byzantine is one case. It disrupted several of my units before I was able to engage. However, after the middle of Byzantine line was cracked by Muslim spearmen and no more reserve was placed in the middle, Byzantine battle array gradually melted away. The cavalry skirmish on my right flank aka Nijis left flank is also in my favor. It's pleasant to play with Nijis who has good sense of humor. Good game.

Division D

Schweetness101 - Arab (Abbasid) 874-946 AD defeated Challenge1 - Viking (Ireland) 900-1049 AD with Scots ally: 51-25

Arab mediocre lancer cavalry pulled up in a long line in front of the viking shield wall, somewhat neutralizing them for a time while the dailami foot wrapped up the left flank in the rough ground. My right consisting of some cheaper foot and a few massed archers ultimately collapsed but not in time.

Division C

oscarius (Rus) beats paulmcneil (Dailami) 61 - 54

As tight a game as the scoreline indicated with my foe dangerous to the very end. Generally I enjoyed success in the centre while Paul did better on the flanks but ultimately points resolved to my favour.

(3-1)

Division A

harveylh – Khorasanian 821-1003 AD with Arab (Abbasid) 815-835 AD ally defeats MorkinTheFree - Polish 966-1057 AD, 43-18.

Scattered patches of rough terrain hurt the Poles as they had no effective MI.

Division A

harveylh – Khorasanian 821-1003 AD with Arab (Abbasid) 815-835 AD ally defeats CheAhn - Arab (Conquest) 638-684 AD, 63-50.

The Arab spearmen destroyed the Khorasanian center and their lancers burst through the Khorasanian right and took the early lead. However, on the left flank, the Khorasanian Dailamia infantry with some cavalry smashed the Arab assault and was able to finally flank the Arab center. On the right flank, the surviving Khorasanians successfully counterattacked. My gracious opponent put it best, “Allah is not with us, his light shines on the Khorasanians.” A very good game.

Div C

fikabo (Polish 966 with Viking ally) beat Oscarius - (Rus with Viking ally) 45:5

Despite result it was very hard battle. I have strong skirmishes and mass archers which win very effective on my left.
In centre I have smaller number of heavy infantry so I delay mele and at end get help of left wing.
On my right I have smaller number of cavalry but with help of some arches and mass archers I balance it.

PS: This was finished 10 October. I put next day info on forum but diseapear: Either I send it to other forum or not press submit, sorry.
