phoyle3290 – Carthaginian, Hannibal in Italy, 216-203 BC with Bruttian or Lucanian allies defeats MikeMarchant - Roman 199-106 BC with Greek (Western) 280-49 BC allies - 61-44

Our lines completely spread out on contact with both of our right flanks collapsing quickly. My left flank was able to get the points needed before his left could fully join the fight. It was very close up to the last couple turns.

Thanks for the game!

Division E

Bishuk (Persian) beat baldrick52 - Indo-Parthian 60 BC-30 AD 42-9

An unfortunate terrain feature for the Parthians as a stream ran down one side of the map, effectively curtailing the mobility advantage of the cavalry army.
Nevertheless a valiant effort to use the troops to their best advantage gave the Persians some scary moments, especially with the Pachyderm's.

Thanks for the game Richard.

Division B

Questar17 - Ptolemaic 166-56 BC beat GDod - Seleucid 302-301 BC with Lysimachid 320 BC allies 42:6

This diadochi clash was tougher than final score could show as 2/3 of the points were got on last two turns when my camel did 3 flanking/ rear charges on pikes opponents after some long ride on the flank filled by Gdod skirmishers. Special thanks to my pike stack who was fighting vs 3 infantries so well so the camel rear charge could be done.

Thank you for the game

Division C

Karvon (Thracian, Triballi 350 BC-46 AD with Getae allies) defeated General Shapur (Seleucid 166 BC) 47-9 for a 4-0 win.

Cloud of Thracian skirmishers swept around Selucids and slowy but surely dispatched most of the troops supporting the pike and impact foot core. Sustained shooting and repeated flank attacks by horse finally led to the breaking of several heavy foot and the collapse of the army.

Division C

Karvon (Thracian, Triballi 350 BC with Getae 279 BC – 46 AD allies) drew vs. markwatson360 (Lysimachid 320 BC with Thracian, Hellenistic 350 BC allies) 37-25 for a score of 2-2

Thracian skirmishers and horse dispatched a fair number of support troops, and though we had a few more on the ropes, night fell before we could finish them off. Lysimachids were pretty aggressive in countering our lights and managed to catch a fair number of them.

(2-2)

Division C

Swuul (Samnite 355-272 BC with Etruscan 330-280 BC allies) beat Karvon (Thracian, Triballi 350 BC-46 AD with Getae 279 BC – 46 AD allies) 59-27

A map with some thick woods across the map. The Thracians, despite having a clear quality edge with their troops, mostly focused on hiding in the forest with their heavier troops, and running away from combat through the flanks with the skirmishers. The samnites were mostly fighting against the clock, trying to find the thracians from their hiding places, but where the scattered thracian units were found they put up a fierce resistance before being overrun by the more co-ordinated samnites.

Division C

Swuul (Samnite 355-272 BC with Etruscan 330-280 BC allies) beat General Shapur (Seleucid 166-125 BC) 57-32

A rather flat map with a shallow stream running in the middle. On Seleucid side of the field there some rough patches and a couple defensive hills. The Seleucids decided to take a strong defensive position along the hills. However, as the samnite skirmishers closed in and released volley after volley on the seleucids, they released their troops to chase the skirmishers away. The samnite cavalry broke through on the left flank and began to roll up the seleucid lines, so even though the elephants were running amok through the samnite lines, the phalanxes and argyraspides were flanked and run down by the samnites.
Thank you for the game General Shapur, your defensive positions were really tough to crack, but the samnite javelinmen won this one for me by forcing you to leave the positions :)

Division A

Ludendorf (Hannibal in Africa 202BC) beat Triarii (Jewish (64BC-6AD) with Roman (105BC-25BC) allies) 43-12%

Ludendorf (Hannibal in Africa 202BC) beat dkalenda (Pontic (110-85BC) 50-9%

Triarii gave me the initial impression that he was going to hang back on the hill and allow me to surround him, and he threw out his skirmishers and cavalry against my right wing. This lulled me into a false sense of security, as it appeared I was going to remove his skirmishers and cavalry and then be able to turn on the infantry on the hill. Whether this was planned or not, he very quickly and skillfully changed tack and charged his strongest infantry off the hill before I was ready to receive them, smashing through my front line and disordering my left. Unfortunately for him, I was able to finish off his cavalry, skirmishers and his left flank before he could capitalise on his own local victories.

dkalenda struggled with an appalling map and was dogged by foul luck all the way through the battle. A river ran through it that extended far towards his side, bottling up his heavy infantry army while my mediums were barely obstructed at all. Despite this, he succeeded in blocking most of my flanking attempts for a time, only to suffer multiple freak disruptions that made his position completely impossible to defend. I got the better of the skirmish admittedly, but it is hard for me to see what my opponent could have done differently given the map and the way the dice landed.

Division A

Schweetness101 – Carthaginian, Hannibal in Italy 216-203 BC with Samnite 355-272 BC allies defeats dkalenda - Pontic 110-85 BC 47:18

the game opened with both armies facing one another across a flat plain on the Carthaginian left (left side of below picture), but the Pontic forces immediately retreated their right from that plain, and pivoted 90 degrees to force the Carthaginians to attack up a shallow hill and into a forest (or wait around under fire from a huge mass of light archers). This also forced Carthage to expose their left to a 3 unit cavalry ambush flank in the woods of the top left of the below picture. That Cav flank was held off by 2 Carthaginian cav and some light foot for some time, but one Pontic lancer cav got through and managed to rear attack and break some samnite foot, but was then stuck in with veteran african spears, and was itself broken. The Carthaginian impact foot got some good rolls and double dropped some thureophoroi to get up on and take the hill. The Pontic cataphracts were also held off by veteran african spears on the left and an elephant on the right, but never quite broken.

Division D

SLancaster (Lysimachid 320-281 BC with Seleucid 302-301 BC allies) defeated Najanaja (Roman 199-106 BC with Greek 227-146 BC allies) 71-55.

This was my last match of the season and it really went all the way. Najanaja thought his army would crumble in the middle but he hung on till the very last turn! I managed to rout two of his units on my last turn to just clinch the win. Even though I finished undefeated for the season I really had to fight for it and our division had some worthy opponents. Thanks to all for the games and let's see how the division ends!

Over and out.

Division D

Challenge1 - Roman 105-25 BC defeated Bluefin - Syracusan 280-211 BC 58 - 29

Absolutely horrible terrain with mountains reducing the actual battlefield to a frontage about a 1/3 of normal and then a stream running through the middle of the 2 armies.
The Romans crossed the stream first on their left but were stalled quite quickly heralding an general advance across the stream of the Syracusans. Depsite their left crumbling, the Roman legions were able to hold and then counter the advance.

Thank you for a difficult and challenging match!
