Division A

harveylh - Kyrenean Greek 630-461 BC with Libyan 549-301 BC ally defeats MorkinTheFree - Lydian 687-551 BC, 62-50

A game that went back and forth. Steep and rough hills made strong defensive positions both for the Greek left flank and the Lydian left flank. The Greeks attacked the Lydian center and initially made good headway but the Lydians counterattacked in the center and attacked the Greek left flank. Both centers were nearly wiped out with reserves from both armies flanks continuing the fight. The Greeks won the battle of the hill on their left flank and this was the difference. Very good game.

(3-1)

Division A

harveylh - Kyrenean Greek 630-461 BC with Libyan 549-301 BC ally defeats desertedfox - Egyptian 664-571 BC, 48-20

Terrain helped a lot as a small lake and steep hill secured the Greek right flank and cut the battlefield by nearly half. A much closer game than the score indicates and desertedfox played the Egyptians well. First time I have beaten the Egyptians who are definitely my favorite biblical army. Shame I probably will never be able to use them in league play. :-)

Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Thracian (Getae) 680-330 BC) defeats Cunningcairn (Hebrew 681-586 BC with Egyptian 664-571 BC ally) 62-47

A near run thing, in which stubborn Egyptian Guard Spearmen resisted all attacks by Thracian Medium Foot, shielding their Heavy Chariots from flank attacks. In the end, sheer numbers won the day for the Thracians.

Weekly round-up
Snugglebunnies (Thracian Getae) is currently top of Division A with 5 wins from 8 matches, but he is likely to be overtaken in due course by at least one of three players who have made strong starts - harveylh (Kyrenean Greek), sunnyboy (Lydian) and ianiow (Arab). desertedfox has also posted his third win in his first season in the top flight and that should be enough to retain his place in Division A. In Division B an exciting tussle is in prospect where Ulysisgrunt (Cypriot) has made a very strong start with 5 wins from 6. There are a number of players who could give him a good run for his money including markwatson360 (Median) and lunecastle (Assyrian).

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
ianiow (Division A) 3 matches
sunnyboy (Division A) 3 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 - 15 out of 45 matches completed :D

Division A has excellent match completion while Division B is good.

Player of the week
harveylh (Division A) with 2 wins this week. :D

Biblical Division B for Boisterous

Barrold (Boiotian League) ran into a time limit against lunecastle (Assyrian) 57-44

Now this was a battle.

I sent my stronger hoplites to the left while placing my citizen hoplites in a refuse flank line to try and anchor as much of the Assyrians as possible. My thought was to gain local advantage in the assault of a significant hill where many archers and spearmen were ensconced.

My refused flank forced the better quality Assyrian cavalry and chariots to take a long and circuitous route to the rear of my assaulting force. I attempted to harass the cav with skirmishers with limited success.

The assault managed to clear the hill with great difficulty as the archers stuck around far too long. My much depleted force was able to turn in time to face the late arriving cav and chariots. In the meantime my citizen hoplites were free of their flank duties and were able to move towards the main battle and essentially prevent the secondary Assyrian troops from falling onto my weary line from flank and rear.

Great game and thanks for the challenge lunecastle.

Weekly round-up
desertedfox (Egyptian) is the new leader in Division A after securing 2 victories this week in his first season at Division A level. He still faces strong challenges from harveylh (Kyrenean Greek) and the unbeaten sunnyboy (Lydian) in order to win the championship. The previous winner in the last 2 seasons, ianiow (Arab) suffered two narrow defeats this week to leave his quest for a treble looking decidedly shaky now. Just a couple of drawn matches in Division B this week which means Ulysisgrunt (Cypriot) is still looking favourite to win automatic promotion to an A division for the second time in recent seasons.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
desertedfox (Division A) 3 matches
sunnyboy (Division A) 3 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 28 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 17 out of 45 matches completed :D

Division A has excellent match completion while Division B is a little bit slow.

Player of the week
desertedfox (Division A) with 2 wins this week to go top of the table in his first season in the top flight. :D

Division B

MikeMarchant (Elamite 815-539 BCE - Allies: Babylonian) defeated garymann (Arab 1000-313 BC1-1111) 61/38

A bright start by the Arab camels on my left flank (lots and lots of them) who seemed to disrupt everythign they spat at. A combination of tenacious chariots and obstinate cavalry eventually put them to flight collapsing the Arab right wing. The centre was dominated by Elamite infantry and cavarly, with support from heavy chariots and more light chariots, in a race for time as my right flank rapidly folded. The Arab centre, with help from troops flanking from my left crumbled dramatically, leaving me watching the Arab forces on my right flank hesitate and then join the general rout.

Great game, Gary, and bad luck. Look forward to our next.


Best Wishes

Mike
