Re: LORDS OF HISTORY (the ultimate edition)

Dorostolon Londo (Byz) 50/58 - mcfcivo (Rus) 93/85 Londo (Rus) 60/85 - Ian (Byz) 60/58 The scenario hinges on whether the Rus can break the Byzantine centre before the cavalry jaws of death close around them. The Rus managed this in one game; in the other the Byz infantry held on (barely). Thanks An...

Re: LORDS OF HISTORY (the ultimate edition)

Interestingly, I just noticed we started this whole journey 3 years ago! 51 battles later, we're still going strong. The year 1000 beckons. That means we are all three years older ! To put a positive spin on it, we're all still alive! (I don't think Fogman would give any of us permission to kick th...

Re: LORDS OF HISTORY (the ultimate edition)

Lechfeld Londo (Franks) 38/42 - Fogman (Magyars) 41/40 Tettenhall Londo (Anglo-Saxons) 44/48 - Edmund (Danes) 59/60 Edmund's impact foot let him down - maybe some drug-fuelled berserkir had eaten too many of the magic mushrooms? But most of the loot bearers got away. A Danish clash of arms marker he...

Re: LORDS OF HISTORY (the ultimate edition)

the dark ages weren’t kind to scholarship My comment two weeks ago certainly wasn't an attack on scholarship, but rather meant as a little joke on the name of the battle. I only knew about the reasonably famous 18th century battle. Hadn't even heard of Fontenoy 841 - even though it had (according t...

Fontenoy

Londo (Lothair) 51/84 - Ian (L/C) 76/74

So where was Marechal de Saxe, the Gardes Francaises, the Black Watch, the Irish Brigade? You really should do better research into these famous battles, Fogman! ;)

Re: LORDS OF HISTORY (the ultimate edition)

Rayy Londo (Ks) 23/42 - mcfcivo (Abbasids) 48/60 The K/unpronounceables did well initially in the centre, but it then turned into a hard fight there. They were helped by the failure of the Abbasid left flank infantry attack. And then it ended! I'm playing Ian and Edmund now in the remaining games fr...

Re: LORDS OF HISTORY (the ultimate edition)

More Talas Londo (Tang) 33/73 - mcfcivo (Abbasids) 73/73 This is what I had feared in the reverse game. The Abbasids launched an immediate full-scale assault along the Tang line. Although they routed some of the Tang foot, the Abbasids took such heavy casualties that the battle was over before the m...

Re: LORDS OF HISTORY (the ultimate edition)

Talas Londo (ABBA fans) 54/73 - Ian (Orange Cordial enthusiasts) 75/73 I didn't like the idea of attacking the Tang infantry line head-on across the broken ground. (Fogman, does it represent field fortifications?) And particularly I couldn't see a role for the Abbasid cavalry doing so. So Ziyad and ...

Re: LORDS OF HISTORY (the ultimate edition)

Guadalete Londo (Goths) 36/52 - allendeuce (Umayyads) 32/32 Notwithstanding his unfortunate speech impediment, King Wodewic of the Wisigoths fought bravely against a vicious delay marker for several turns, until it finally slew him! The Goths were saved by taking most of the left-flank lancers out o...

Aqraba

Londo (Banu Hanifa) 69/88 - Ian (Rashidun) 73/70

The Rashidun took heavy losses in the fighting for the gully. The game ended just as their assault on the walled garden was getting underway. Thanks Ian!

Re: LORDS OF HISTORY (the ultimate edition)

Yarmouk River - thanks for the game Jim! Londo (Romans) 67/92 - allendeuce (Arabs) 67/67 Roman victory was largely due to their cavalry wing, which recovered from the initial shock of the Rashidun cavalry charge, and came back to inflict heavy casualties on Khalid's boys. Fogman, I noticed that this...

Yarmouk River - thanks for the game Huskie! Londo (Arabs) 59/67 - Huskie (Romans) 93/92 Fogman, a question about Arab infantry. In the standard game, they're almost all identical "Warrior" HF spearmen. However in your scenarios, there are two types - protected HF def spear, and unprotected MF with L...

Campi Catalauni Londo (Romans) 43/68 - Ian (Huns) 62/62 Thanks for the game Ian! A question for Fogman. In this game, Huns pulled back completely from their right flank facing the Romans. The Roman cavalry were unable to chase them, being bottled up behind their own immobile infantry and markers. Wa...
