I'll try to do better than that.
Have thought about doing an AAR and this should be as good a start as any.
Stupid choice perhaps since I expect to be soundly beaten!
The new forum annoys me though, with less space to show pictures.
Resizing them is a PITA :evil:

Can a player from each semi-final confirm that their match is underway please?

OK Eric. Can you post your challenge on the system and post the details here too please? I am quite happy to allow a few extra days for the semi-finals to be completed but I don't want things dragging on indefinitely. If your challenge is not picked up by Chris by the time it drops off the system then I will certainly award the match to you. :wink:

Eric and I are mostly maneuvering and skirmishing so far. Added a reply with more detail to what seems to be turning into the semi-final AAR thread.

Have included this on the AAR thread as well.

Well our game is now at a halfway point I reckon.

I have 9/38 losses and Chris has 21/38

However he has done a very good job of moving quite a lot of his cav and lf away from my advancing troops, even so through a bit of good fortune I have managed to rout the 2 lancer units and my lone knight has pursued into a lh that stood? As we all know that is a major bug in the game. Light troops standing even though they have space to evade and are probably on always evade mode.

I am also 1 move away from attacking his camp. He has 2 lf sitting in front of it and they have nowhere to go as the camp is in the corner of the map. I have 2 almughavar units ready to charge in and a lf unit who can also charge in or into the camp.

In the meantime my lower right flank has nearly crumbled away. 2 of my knights are fragged mainly through failing tests, 1 disrupted Almughavr unit facing a steady cav bow/sword and 2 or 3 other almughavar units who can be charged by lancers. One is nearly on auto rout. If we both roll equal dice here I reckon I will lose 7 or 8 bps to Chris' 1 or 2.

But I am hoping at the end of Chris' next turn I could well pick up 10 or more bps for only 1 or 2 losses.

Most of Chris' troops are on my right hand sice of the map from top to bottom. I need to hang on in there with the fewer units I ahve in the lower right of the map and bring up reserves (will take too long) to have him in all sorts of problems.

However he can still shoot up quite a few of my troops and will also be able to loot my camp. For me to win I will have to try and catch some of his light troops and his cav bow but I think it is going to be a bit difficult at the moment. I have the upper hand and yet the game can drag on. The longer it does the more shooting casualties I will receive and then who knows.

Congratulations to Eric on reaching the final where he awaits the winner of the other semi-final between hidde and davouthojo. And very well played to Chris too - reaching the semi-final is a very good achievement in what was quite a strong field of 32 entrants at the start. Chris will play the other defeated semi-finalist in the 3rd/4th place play off match.

A hard fought swirling match, but tough superior bowmen rolling against the odds finally pays off!

davouthojo (Christian Nubian) 34/48 vs 43/34 hidde (Moldavians)

Thanks for the game, Anders!

Congratulations to Chris for winning through to the final where he will play Eric. Hard luck to Anders - the loss of your leader relatively early on was a major blow. Anders will now play the other Chris (batesmotel) in the 3rd/4th place play-off match.
