marc on the left, places two pairs of KN/Cv in the center, and 2 wings, one stronger than the other. I have the init and places a bedouins in ambush behind a hill. Mamluks in the center, LH and LF on the wings with the bedouins on the pushing side and only one sedjuk and one LF on the refused side. Lancers at the extremities of mamluk lines, one on each side. Their targets: Cv average lancers, mamluks will play with the knights.

My plan : attack on my left, delay on my right, his plan seems to be the same. A valse...

on my left things are progressing nicely

in the center my Cv finally recovered cohesion and his Cv lost a base. A BG of knigh charged but had lost a base with shooting... things were going to work as planned. His left wing was now touching my table side and threatening my camp.

my 3rd game was against an hungarian with plenty of LH and 3 bg of Kn. The game was also a nul, when the knight came in the center, my center line evaporated on both sides where i tried to push forward his LH.

my 2 nd game was again against Nikaian. This time the opposing army had a BG of MF bowmen and a BG of HF def spear (you can see in the bottom of the picture). My opponent deployed on his right. YYou can see on the picture the game of shoot and flee done by the ghulams against Kn (without any success).

on the other side, too many terrain made the cavalry moves diificult
