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

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!).
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.

Div C

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

Division B

melm (Andalusian 756-1049AD) beat Nijis (Byzantine 963-987AD) 50-19.

In 1600 pts army match, bow's effectiveness actually increases as player can deploy more bow unit and concentrate them somewhere to loose havoc. Byzantine is one case. It disrupted several of my units before I was able to engage. However, after the middle of Byzantine line was cracked by Muslim spearmen and no more reserve was placed in the middle, Byzantine battle array gradually melted away. The cavalry skirmish on my right flank aka Nijis left flank is also in my favor. It's pleasant to play with Nijis who has good sense of humor. Good game.

Division C

fikabo (Jewish+Romans) defeated Rob123 (Romans+Jewish) 55:23

I have many skirmishes which doing what possible to weaken stronger infantry of enemy in centre and with elephant try to lock enemy cavalry from attempt to encircle my army from my left. On my right the same thing make my 2 horses on small hills. My center was first on 4 square hill so I have some terrain handicap. My left wing win and finish battle just in time because my right part of middle start to collapse.

So was it the JPF or the PFJ that won?

Division D

vakarr (Thracians+Greek allies) defeated rs2excelsior (Romans) 51-13

on perfect Roman terrain - a mountain map with a lake covering one side of the map and a mountain covering the other side, with a bowling green in between. There was a wood and a hill at the Thracian end of the battlefield but the Thracians went in for the attack and destroyed all but two of the non-legionary units. The legionary units were just beginning to make their way through the Thracian infantry when the game ended. The Roman elephant was seen off with some really good shooting and the Roman cavalry suffered similarly before being charged from all directions by light horse. Elsewhere the Thracians advanced across the front of the Roman line or fell back, it was a tough battle to win!

Division C

Karvon (Sarmatian 350 BC-24 AD) defeated Bluefin (Kappadokian 260 BC - 17 AD) 49=11 for a score of 4-0.

A large river largely walled off the left, though it did have a crossing at each end. A large hill with scattered rough lay on the right closer to the Kappadokains. Beyond the hill, a large forest blocked things off. A small hill lay in about the middle of the Kappodokian area. Two smaller woods provided a bit of protection for each their flanks.

We deployed a small group of light foot hidden in trees beyond the river with the plan of pushing them down and around the enemy right, if the crossing was left unguarded. The rest of our light foot we placed on the right to screen an advance acroos the hill and thru the woods. Our lancers were in four equal divisions. Spread across the middle of the field.

The Kappadokians deployed a mass of medium foot in the middle supported by a warband or two. On each flank were half a dozen horse. Several light horse were also on each wing. A few light foot screened their position.

Our light foot beyond the river made the long march to the far crossing, and ended up skirmishing with a lone enemy horse to no effect. Our lights on the right, swept ahead and disrupted and drove off opposing lights and softened up the enemy horse a bit for the following lancers. We pushed the first division of lancers on our left into the opposing enemy horse, breaking and driving off about half of them and locking into combat with the survivors. The second division we launched into the center to tie down the massed enemy foot. These guys fought gloriously, disrupting and fragmenting a fair number, but eventually got ground down by the numbers and mostly died. The two remaining divisions attacked the enemy left, dispatching most of the enemy horse and then wheeling in on the enemy center to finish off the infantry disorganized by the sacrificial charge of our second division, breaking the enemy army and winning the battle.

With the map a wide open plain, Sam and the boys were prepared for a tough battle against the hard hitting pikes. The Samnite MF did a decent job of turning both flanks and allowed the cavalry to get behind the Antigonid lines and cause havoc. Thanks for the game.
