Division D

Lunecastle - Byzantine 988-1041 with Georgian ally beat Challenge1 - Viking (Ireland) 900-1049 AD with Scots ally 66-52

To see a unit of Viking Huscarls take on 2 units of Varangians ,toe to toe, for round after round never getting so much as disrupted until they autobroke with 80 men left
shows the ferocity of this game. Good formation and order was held by both sides, and there was an inspired use of Viking cavalry (defeated 3 byzantine HC).
Thanks for the game Challenge1, All the best Lunecastle.

(3-1)

Division D

Schweetness101 (Carthage, Hannibal in Africa 202 BC) beat cromlechi (Egyptian 405-343 BC): 53-27

Knowing that the Egyptians would vastly outnumber me with defensive spearmen, and have superior ranged capability with the massed archers, I determined to rush forward with my best infantry (veteran Italians, African spears, and heavy warband) behind a light infantry screen in order to engage as quickly as possible. I had a few cavalry for flanks, but no elephants because they would simply be too vulnerable, and not a good matchup against the Egyptian forces.

I formed up the infantry into a column all on my right flank, where the hill that dominated the map was closer to me, best troops in front, with LF screening from MA fire, with the hopes of routing the Egyptian left and center before their long right wing, and reserve of hoplites, could wheel around. I nearly succeeded in that, getting up to almost 30-0 percent rout wise at first. But, when the Egyptian right finally came around, they rapidly routed, through massed archer fire followed with charges and chain routing, my pinning force on the left consisting of scutarii and a veteran African spear unit. This almost closed the gap in a single turn, leaving us at ~39-29.

The battle then became a bit of a slog fest, but a few more flanks on isolated remnants of the Egyptian left, routs of Egyptian early cavalry surrounded by my light foot, rallies of a few scutarrii of mine, and the sheer tenacity of veteran African spears, even when surrounded, finally got me to that >25% gap.

In the picture below:

the top right was the Egyptian starting position, and the bottom left the Carthaginian starting position. The Egyptian left is gone, and their center is engaged all along the ridgeline, both armies having pivoted 90 degrees. The Egyptian right is still intact, has wheeled around, and begun to seize the territory the Carthaginian left and center started on, but too late.

gg to cromlechi

and that's all for me this tournament, good luck everyone! :)

Division A

harveylh - Kyrenean Greek 630-461 BC with Libyan 549-301 BC ally defeats Snugglebunnies - Thracian (Getae) 680-330 BC, 60-44

The battle fought over a mixture of open and rough terrain with some woods. Tough close game and the difference was hoplites lasting longer in the open than the Thracian medium infantry.

On a battlefield with rough terrain, woods, and a large steep hill, nearly all the terrain was on the Greek side forcing most of the Samnites to fight in the open where the hoplites and Carthaginian cavalry had the advantage.
