Result:

After a shambolic attempt to marshall the Bithynian lighter forces against the heavy might of the Galatian warbands the Bithynians fled the field......
Congratulations to Aryaman and his Galatian hordes......

Losses 52% Bithynian....16% Galatian

The traditional Bythinian collapse on contact always delights their opponents and again did not disappoint :-). A Selucid victory 46% to 13% was the result !

Many thanks and congratulations to Alessandro .

Lysimachos......

My lot could be fed raw meat and whiskey and they would still be more suited to knitting when confronted with any Heavy Infantry :-)

And here a look at what's happening between the Romans and the Galatians.

Full contact of the first lines of men, fighting furiously ahead ...

The Bithynian General has devised a brilliant two pronge maneuvre in order to squander the Roman lines and the outcome is still to be decided ...

In the meantime Romans and Pergamenes are charging headlong into each other without much maneuvering ...

"All the best laid plans of mice and men ".....as someone once wrote wistfully, were as naught to the power of Rome sadly.

The Bithynians did what they do best and shone until actually required to engage in hand to hand combat ...........at which point they remembered they had a pressing engagement elsewhere..... :-)

Congratulations to my Roman opponent........... I believe the result was 48% to 12% but he will no doubt correct me if I am mistaken.

Now off for some therapy :-)

The match against the Bithynians led by devoncop ended 42% to 10%.
It is a shame that a general so brilliant has to cope with an army so embarassing ... alas there were no other choices left in Asia Minor.

He devised a very clever plan, dividing his army in two parts, one partly hidden in the woods, in order to split the Romans and try to catch them in the rear.
Luckily the Romans held some troops on their left flank, fearing something could happen on that wing, and were able to withstand the unexpected onslaught, while crushing the enemy in the center and on the right flank due to their superior qualities.

A great game, anyway, devoncop where you should have deserved better luck and harder soldiers!

In a development to shake the ancient world to its core the Bithynians are neck and neck late into the battle with Pontus on about 45% each....nailbiting stuff...I remain confident however that they will revert to type once the drugs I have put into their gruel wears off... :)
