Div a
Klayeckles (assyrians) defeates Nijis (achaemenids) 68 to 47

The assyrians scouted out the persian army and saw the superior firepower and determined a straight up shoot out was out of the question. when they arrived at the battlefield they found a rugged landscape that would favor missile fire...it looked really bad for the assyrians. So...they hid in a giant forest at the rear of their side of the map while their emissaries went to the persians to sue for peace. The achaemenids were confident and ripe for a challenge; they sent the assyrian diplomats packing and advanced on the dense forest region. even the assyrian skirmishers took refuge in the woods, so the persians began to encircle the wood.

Then the furthest reaches of the wood erupted on both sides with assyrian cav and chariots as well as heavy assyrian infrantry. the persians split into two forces and began to pummel the assyrians, who also set about to launch their own missile barrages. then, as the persians split into two separate forces, the assyrian medium foot packed away deep in the wood burst forward, engaging the flanks of the two persian wings no longer connected at the center. soon a melee scrum was underway, with the shot up assyrians getting some early disruptions on the persians. The immortals charged into the fray, and things were looking to hang in the balance...either side might win. But before the immortals could save the day several flank charges by the assyrians managed to cause units to frag and rout. in the end, just as the sun was dipping below the horizon and darkness settled, the assyrians managed to pull off a close win over the lethal persian army. GREAT GAME...Nijis was a real sport to try to dislodge the assyrians from the woods; it was a game like no other, and very rewarding that he tried to force the battle even knowing he'd be at a bit of a disadvantage in the wood. Well played and fun for all.

Go figure. I suppose 2 mountain ranges, 2 lakes, 2 forests, and 2 hills may have given the Armenian archers and med inf a slight advantage. Oh OK it was almost entirely down to the terrain.
You had my blessing too. Your win is my win.
Congratulation Hendricus for your victory!
Your Gods helped you… the battlefield was unbelievable and Paul played a perfect game.
remind me never to choose Armenians again, unless I also get to choose the terrain.

Div A
klayeckles (assyrians) vs nyczar (urartains) 42 to 5

the urartains got a little ahead of themselves and marched into a shooting match before they were fully loaded. they quickly ordered the infantry to back step, but it was too late, the troops stumbled over themselves as the arrow swarm descended. soon they were fragmenting from tripping over their own fallen. and it all fell apart too quickly. it was not a pretty sight. A sporting try that nyczar stuck it to the end. this battle really showed how failing a cohesion test or two when back stepping can really weaken a battle line. It just goes to show...the first rule of winning is ROLL GOOD DICE! 8)

Division A

klayeckles (ptolemy) vs nyzar (greeks) 55 to 19.
greeks had no chance against the dominating dice rolls of the ptolemiacs. despite being outnumbered and out classed the ptolemy center held on for wayyyyy longer than it should have--even winning a missmatched battle, ultimately giving the trundling outflanking manouver of a pike block and spears time to swing around to end the battle.

Division B

Jagger2002 (Carthaginian) defeats GDOD (Syracuse) 48-7

Jagger2002 (Carthage) draws Morbio (Thracian) 34-40

The battle with Syracuse was a slug it out battle from flank to flank with 2 hills and a couple of patches of rough dictating the battle. Fortunately some of those fearsome armored hoplites penetrated too deeply into Carthaginian lines and were flanked which also put two Syracuse generals out of the battle early. One opening in the line was then infiltrated while one cavalry unit managed to get open on the right flank. The cavalry then performed the classic "roll up a flank" taking out three units and breaking open the Syracuse left center. The pressure was very intense on the Carthaginian center and left. If either had broken, the results would have been very different. The battle was much, much closer than indicated by the score. Note the 13-4 score just prior to the cavalry charge. Very tough and challenging battle well played by GDOD that could have went either way.

Unfortunately, we ran out of time in the Thracian battle. I was furiously assaulted by light infantry and cavalry while the main Thracian army wisely lurked in the deep forest. Once the main army emerged to fight, there just wasn't enough time left to reach a decision. Needed another 3-5 turns to finish things. Pummeled by swarms of light infantry and light cavalry for the entire game. Very pesky fellows! The Carthaginian army could definitely use some light cavalry and a few more light infantry. Thanks for the game, Morbio! We shall meet again.

XLegione has won Biblical Division B!

Post by stockwellpete » Wed Apr 10, 2019 6:34 am

In a very close finish to Biblical Division B, Jagger2002 could only draw his last match which means that XLegione has won automatic promotion to the top level by just one point with his Phoenician army. Well played XLegione! :D
