Rulers of Xth century Levant

Rulers of Xth century Levant

This tournament is aimed to let the most impressive armies of the period coveting Northern Mesopotamian lands during the Xth century to fight each one vs the others in order to find out which will emerge as the final winner!

The armies fighting in the tournament are:
Abbasid Arab (later) DaF - Londo
Bedouin Dynasties (Hamdanid) DaF - NikiforosFokas
Dailami (Musafarid) DaF - allendeuce
Early North African Dynasties (Fatimid) DaF - Ironclad
Georgian (1027-1117) SaS - MikeMarchant
Thematic Byzantine DaF - Lysimachos

Being the organizer I’ve reserved to myself the Thematic Byzantine army, so there is place for other five players. Each of them will have the right to choose any of the army still free at the moment.
The matches will be played on the old engine of FoG with 800 pts. armies, DM and FoW on.
Each victory will give 2 pts. to the winner, a draw is worth 1 pt. and ½ more pts. will be awarded:
- to the winner who manages to loose less than 2/3 of his break pts.,
- to the player who kills the enemy Commander in Chief,
- to the player who sack the enemy camp.

Welcome Nikiforos!

Now the tournament is ready to begin.
The first matches are these:
• Byzantines (Lysimachos) - Hamdanids (NikiforosFokas)
• Fatimids (Ironclad) - Musafarids (allendeuce)
• Georgians (MikeMarchant) - Abbasids (Londo)

The challenges:
- will be launched by the home players using the old FoG system with 800 pts. armies, FoW and DM on,
- will be announced on this thread also, as the subsequent results.
I think we should try to complete each round in about one week, unless specified problems arise.

Let everybody remeber that:
- a win gives 2 pts.,
- a draw 1 pt.,
- the loss of less than 2/3 of each break pts. 1/2 pt.,
- the killing of the enemy Commander in Chief 1/2 pt.,
- the sacking of the nemy camp 1/2 pt.

So let start the matches and ... good luck everybody!

Ironclad Fatamids 71/76 defeated Allendeuce Musafarids 54/54

Facing a Dailami army I was relieved to gain the terrain advantage of fighting mainly in the open, but the enemy mediums still proved ferocious opposition.
The battle was one of two successful attacking right flanks. On mine I had concentrated most of my lancers and light cavalry against his infantry supported by cavalry redeployed from the centre, whilst his attacking wing pushed through woods to ruthlessly expose the fragility of my defending mediums and their supporting archers and lights.

In the end the battle was only won by the superior numbers of the Fatamids. A terrific battle and congratulation to Jim on his great fight that came so close.

Both CinCs survived, no camps were sacked, and my losses were well over two thirds.

Great batle report, Ironclad!
It was like seeing the battle developing in front of us ..

I'm going to believe this tournament is going to put in confront large quantity armies (like the Fatimids and the Hamdanids) vs small quality armies (like the Musafarids and the Byzantines).
It will be interesting to see who will prevail though I fear (leading the Byzantines) that this first result is quite an anticipation of the others.

Α disgraceful day. I, Nikiforos Fokas, helped my cruel rival Seyf ad-Dawla win a byzantine army. Shame for me.
Nikiforos Fokas Hamdanids 67/80 vs Lysimachos Byzantines 55/54.
No camp sacked, no leader died.
Bad luck dear Lysimachos.
For Byzantium!!
