Please use the following format when reporting your results . . .

Division A

hidde (Assyrians) beat stockwellpete (Elamites) 50-25

It is very helpful to me if we all get used to reporting the results in the same way, so please report the score as 50-25 rather than 25-50. This avoids much confusion when discussing match situations by PM with regards to adjudication or some other issue regarding the rules of the tournament.

Division B

markwatson360's Medians defeated MikeMarchant's Elamites 40 - 15

A good game, closer than the score would suggest. God only knows how many arrows were used, a real shooting match.

Division A

harveylh - Kyrenean Greek 630-461 BC with Libyan ally 549-301 BC ally defeats XLegione Achaemenid Persian 550-546 BC, 47-22

Woods and mountains provided flank coverage for the Persians but no rough terrain on the Persian side of the battlefield forced them to fight hoplites on the open plain. Well deployed Immortals and bow cavalry almost defeated the Greek right flank. Good game.

Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Thracian (Getae) 680-330BC) defeats desertedfox (Egyptian 664-571BC) 49-23

The Egyptians punched through the Thracian center, but the Thracians rolled up the Egyptian right and fought a successful delaying action on their left thanks to a large rocky outcropping and forest. GG.

Well fought Mark!

Division A

youngr - Median with Babylonian ally defeated XLegione Achaemenid Persian; 67-49

A close game. The Medes managed to turn the flank though at the cost of massed shooting to death of spearmen

Division A

sunnyboy (Lydian) beat Cunningcairn (Hebrew) 41-12

The game took a little bit of time to develop, the Lydians feeling their initial deployment was dangerously outflanked spent the first half of the match deploying to more favourable positions with the Hebrew host in hot pursuit. As the battle unfolded the Lydian lancers on the right flank although slightly outnumbered by the Hebrew chariots were able to hold the flank, a fortunate (for the Lydian) push-back prevented a potentially devastating flank charge that proved crucial to the outcome. With Phrygian foot holding the high ground to secure the other flank. The clash in the centre determined the result with the Lydian hoplites getting the better of their opponents.

Thanks for an enjoyable game!

Div A

ianiow (Arabs) defeated cunningcairn (Hebrew/Egyptian) 61 vs 59

Cuningcairn deployed his Egyptians on a central hill, spears in front and archers shooting overhead. Upon this the arabs sent the deepest part of their MF horde. While the egyptian infantry held the slope the archers piled volley after volley into the back ranks of the arabs inflicting heavy losses things looked doomed for the Arabs. Sensing a victory the Hebrew left and right wings swung around the hill, the left pushing the thinner arab MF flank backwards. The right, mostly cavalry and skirmishers met sterner resistance. As the Arabs pushed back the Hebrew skirmishers, more and more of the Arab left wing were able to aid the fight for the hill and as one Egyptian spearman fell, it send a wave of disruptions all around it. This is what the Arabs needed and they gradually forced their way up the hill to the soft underbelly - egyptian archers.

Cunningcairn was winning this battle -sometimes by a large margin- until the very last turn. I was saved on that last turn by some lucky resistance rolls. Enthralling game. It should have been at least a draw.

(3-1)
