Division B

devoncop (Byzantine 988AD with Georgian Allies) beat Nijis (Byzantine 963AD) ....... 55-28

In a time travelling civil war a tough match was won as a result of successful skirmish and Cavalry actions on the later Byzantine left allowing a partial roll up of the earlier Byzantine line.

A game that could easily have gone the other way.

Thanks to my opponent.

Division A

harveylh – Khorasanian 821-1003 AD with Arab (Abbasid) 815-835 AD ally defeats Triarii - Spanish 900-1049 AD with Andalusian ally, 51-25

It was a bad day for the Spanish lancers as more than once Arab MI stood up to their initial charge which gave the Khorasanians time to bring up supporting troops to repel the lancer attack. The untimely death of a Spanish general leading several lancers in an attack also was a factor. Good game.

Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Anglo-Saxon 600-870 with Welsh Allies) defeats MorkintheFree (Polish 966-1057) 53-22

The battle opened with a ferocious charge by the Anglo Saxon Hirdmen up a large hill in the middle of the battlefield, and the fighting remained centered on that location throughout, with peripheral fighting by cavalry and skirmishers.

Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Anglo Saxon 600-870 with Welsh allies) defeats Sennacherib (Andalusian 756-1049) 60-55

The Andalusians shifted their entire army to a hill on their right. The only flat approach was 4 "tiles" wide, ZoC locked by Lancers and Veteran Spearmen, and covered by their greatly superior numbers of skirmishers. The Anglo Saxon army, lacking heavy Lances, with little missile support, and a great hill to march up, nevertheless had the advantage of... lots and lots of dudes with pointy sticks. Said dudes with pointy sticks (barely) carried the day. By the end of the battle, the Anglo Saxon army occupied the hill, while the remaining Andalusian troops occupied the former position of the Saxon right wing.

Division A

Triarii (Spanish & Andalusian) beats CheAhn (Arab) 61-43

A truly epic and memorable struggle - Spanish had the good fortune to have their first map reasonably uncluttered by poor terrain and a rapid left hook eventually unpicked the stretched muslim spearmen's line while the few Spanish spears held on on a fortunate hill. A great lesson in shifting spearmen and supporting archers about from Cheahn though but.
Thanks for a great game.

Division D

Schweetness101 - Arab (Abbasid) 874-946 AD defeated Doyley50 - Anglo-Danish 1017-1041 AD: 43-0

Was a matchup of total opposites. The map was a wide open field with very little rough ground, and patches of forest only on the periphery that played no role (except to hide my mandatory 3 infantry units). Knowing the vast superiority of armoured, Anglo-Danish shieldwalls and huscarls in an open field to Arab medium infantry and raw spears, I went with an all cavalry and light foot army. Seeing this Doyley50 sensibly pulled up into a defensive formation with cavalry on the flanks and lights out front, but the handful of Anglo-Danish cavalry and light foot stood no chance against a huge mass of Ghilman and Arab Lancers and archers. That took me to about 20%, and then I pulled up to the corners of the shield wall and picked off a few of the more vulnerable units while ignoring the huscarls for another ~20%, evading away when charged and flanking with lancers and light lancers with impunity. The game was more or less decided at deployment because of the nature of the matchup.

Division B

Geffalrus (Polish) defeats(?) devoncop (Byzantines and Georgians) 10-6 via honorable surrender.

The map was not very cavalry friendly as both sides were flanked with deep forest and some tall hills. The open land in the center was destined to be dominated by heavy infantry. On the Polish right, aggressive skirmishing resulted in heavy casualties on both sides as the Byzantine cavalry bravely charged into the trees to help. In the center, the Byzantine Skutatoi obliterated a lone massed archer, but were then engaged by the Polish infantry. The elite Varangian Guard was caught out by the Dismounted Polish Nobles and outflanked. With some of their best units reduced to useless, the Byzantine general decided that further action would continue to benefit the Polish forces, and waved the white flag. Arms were returned, bodies were buried, and the Byzantines allowed to return home in peace.

The main collision.
