Giacofa93 (Frankish 751-887 AD) defeats tmac11 (Dabuyid 642-760 AD) 53-14
____

The Frankish cavalry is hidden in the forest, waiting to come out at the right moment. The shieldwall line extends to their right, in front of a vast plain, facing a fearsome horse archer army. But something is off...the rumours travelling from mouth to mouth mentioned a large infantry force together with the nomads, and yet such an army is not here to be seen...is the renowned Dailami infantry maybe lurking in the woods on the other side of the plain?

At a great cost of lives the Frankish lancers drive off the horse archers, supported by the slow advance of the infantry. But as the persian infantry refuses to come out in the open, it is slowly but surely surrounded and its wooden hiding place becomes its wooden coffin.

wmpryor (Andalusian 756-1049 AD) defeats Doyley50 (Anglo-Danish 1017-1041 AD) 48-9

My numerically superior cavalry and good defensive terrain on my flanks helped me win this one.
The Huscarls were bludgeoning my center but my troops held on long enough to turn the tide.
Good game.

Division B

Karvon - Arab (Conquest) 638-684 AD defeated paulmcneil - Dailami 928-1055 AD with Armenian 885-1045 AD 43-5 for a 4-0 victory.

Battle was joined in desert farming district. A large series of enclosed fields surrounded a couple of villages in about the about the center of the Arab side of the field. A large area of rough lay to the left of that with another large farming area just beyond. A large hill looked down the rough stretching towards the Dailami side. Flat plains extended beyond and to the right of the central farming district. A large grove of trees filled the far right corner of the field.

We brought a full contingent of our spearmen, supported by single Dialami foot, a pair of massed bow, and half a dozen light foot. In addition to our Moslem lancers, we brought a Bedouin lancer, a couple of camels and a pair of Bedouin light lancers. I expected the Dailami to send their medium foot around our left over the hill and through the rough ground and then into the farming complex. I figured their mounted would screen the left of the advance in the open plains. I Initially deployed all my infantry in or behind the central farming area with my cavalry and camels behind them in reserve. My light foot and horse were strung out in a loose skirmish line from in front of the fields off to my right.

The Dailami deployed about as I expected and began a steady shifting of his mediums to his right to advance over the hill and through the rough. His cavalry shifted left and advanced to confront my skirmish line. His elephant advanced in support of his horse. In response, I shifted half of my spears to my right out of the enclosures with my mounted force shifted behind them and still as a reserve of sorts. My lights skirmished at a distance from his horse and elephants. I likewise began moving my massed bow to support my advance on my right. The remaining spears redeployed to defend the perimeter of the farm.

On the right, my spears and lancers chased most of his left wing cavalry back, while my lights swarmed around his isolated elephant and slowly whittle it down. My camels helped my lights chase off or destroy his lights. On my left, the Dailami foot slowly worked its way to positions along the left side of the enclosures and launched its assault. This devolved into a protracted slugging match; a couple of his units destroyed themselves against the walls and ditches, but his superior numbers allowed him to feed more in to slowly surround and attempt to grind down my spear.

On the right, our lights and camels saw of his lights and began shifting left to threaten flanks or pursue his routers. Other spear pressed on after his retiring and fragmented horse to keep them out of the fight. His surrounded elephant finally collapsed as did a couple of his caught cavalry and my lancers and spear wheeled on the exposed left and rear of the Dailami engaged with my spear in the fields. At this the Dailami had enough and fled for home.

The final scene...

Division C

Morat (French) beat bomber23 (Byzantine) 40-9

Flat and wide open battlefield suited the French, whose massed cavalry charge on the left dispersed the Byzantine horse. In the centre and on the right, the French lines (just) held, allowing the horse to envelop and finish the battle.

Many thanks to bomber23, for a good battle.

Weekly round-up
ericdoman1 (Irish) is the new leader in Division A after posting his second win. harveylh (Andalusian) has opened his account with a win to join mr cholo (Arab Conquest) and XLegione (Dailami) in second place. In Division B joggy (Byzantine) is the leader in the clubhouse with 4 wins from his 9 starts, but that target will be easily overtaken in the next couple of weeks. Karvon (Arab Conquest) is currently best-placed to do so with 3 wins from starts. random27 (German) has posted a third win to maintain the lead in Division C ahead of Rob123 (British) who registered 2 wins this week. This division looks like being a very exciting contest as 4 other players have started with a win in their first match. Division D is nearly half-way through already and it looks very much like newcomer Giacofa93 (Frankish) is going to take the automatic promotion place. So far he has won all 6 matches and leads wmpryor (Andalusian) by 3 points, but wmpryor only has 1 match remaining.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
Giacofa93 (Division D) 6 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 8 out of 45 matches completed
Division B - 13 out of 45 matches completed
Division C - 10 out of 45 matches completed
Division D - 20 out of 45 matches completed

Player of the Week: ilpars (Division D) with 3 wins this week. :D

Division C

Blagrot - Arab Conquest 638-684 AD beat Morat - French 888-1049 AD with Norman 923-1040 AD allies 61% - 42%

The Arab flanks did not enjoy this battle, their lancers were crushed in short order by the French and Norman counterparts and some tree-dwelling lancers brought down the Dailami but the french spearwalls that had assisted in that were rear charged by some annoyed archers and the veteran spears ground their way through the rest of the french infantry line. Thanks for another cracking game
