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.

Division C

markwatson360's (Franks) defeated Rob123's Indians 54-29.

The Indian elephants did quite a lot of damage but the medium indian foot were no match for the shieldwall's of the Franks on a mostly open map. An attritional battle. Thanks for the game Rob.

Division D

vakarr (Thracians) defeated bomber23 (Syracusans) 55-18 after a terrific tussle which could have gone either way.

There was a hill covering most of the front of both armies with a wide stream at the bottom, between the armies. There wasn't a great deal of disordering terrain but there was just enough for the Thracians to survive the Syracusan onslaught. The Syracusan Spaniards fragmented a Thracian spear unit with their first charge only to be fragmented themselves when charged by the Thracians' allied veteran hoplites. A charge across the stream by massed Thracian peltasts disrupted a hoplite unit that was uphill of it (it had previously suffered some casualties but that was a surprise!). Another massed Thracian peltast unit then took it in the rear and it became fragmented. A Syracusan heavy cavalry unit fought three massed peltast units for ages and fragmented one, before finally succumbing to their superior numbers. Thanks for the game, mate!

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

The funny thing about Offensive Spears like Hoplites and such is that their big advantage in infantry combat is in the successive melee rounds, not on impact. Light spear swords are functionally equivalent to hoplites when charging to impact. Subsequent rounds the advantage shifts as Off Spear has +50 POA over most generic swords. The hill slope probably provided......+25 POA on impact to that hoplite, I think? Since that's the most common slope, I think. So definitely that victory was a rare occurrence statistically speaking. The cohesion drop is probably due to the casualties it suffered previously, as I think those can provide a -1 penalty, cancelling out the +1 heavy infantry normally get. Much more likely that the two units would have stuck together and then you would have a flanking opportunity.

Anyway, congrats on the victory.

lydianed (Ghaznavid) defeated GDod (Arab Conquest) 54:29

GDod brought along huge numbers of superior spears. The more nimble Ghaznavids took advantage of a large wooded area and patiently managed to spread the enemy line and achieve some key flanking moves. Really good game, well played GDod
