Just to let you all know that I am experiencing serious laptop problems at the moment. I have a new one ordered, which should arrive early next week. I hope to be able to do the Sunday round-up as normal provided my current lap tap is able to cope with it all.
It's all for a reason Pete....It will arrive just in time for the Field of Glory Empires release :D

Division D

lydianed (Gepid) defeats bomber23 (Ostrogoths) 54-25.

Good game. Ostrogoths got off to a roaring start, wiping out the Gepid lights in next to no time. Tough Gepid foot and overlapping lancers brought it back in a hard fought melee.

Division B

devoncop (Jewish Revolt) beat SpeedyCM (Sassanid 350BC) 62% to 56%

In a game I thought I had won by about turn 10 thanks to the fragility of the Sassanid Infantry, Speedy having conserved his armoured horse archers and elephants well from the skirmish assault counter attacked hard and had I not won on the turn I did the result would have been reversed. Tough match.

Thanks to my opponent.

(3-1)

What I used to do back in the LOEG days was:

For the period based leagues (e.g. Classical, Dark Ages etc.) each player is required to select a specific army list (e.g. Early Armenian – Tigran the Great) from the appropriate DAG (ROR, SOA, IF & SAS) and post it to the appropriate thread for their League (e.g. Season 6 Recruitment - Classical). In each group no two players are permitted to field an identical list though each variant may be fielded by a different player. For example one player may select Bosporan (early) while another takes Bosporan (mid) and finally a third player opts for Bosporan (late). Each season players are not allowed to reselect an army list they have chosen in a previous season until they have played 5 different lists with each list originating from a different nation. I wish to encourage variety within the league and broaden players play styles.

Division A

harveylh - Ptolemaic 166-56 BC defeats youngr - Roman 219-200 BC, 57-31.

With a water feature on one flank and mountains on the other flank, a frontal battle with minimal maneuver ensued. Tough fight as the pikes barely outlasted the veteran Roman legions.

Division C

Geffalrus (Antigonids) defeats paulmcneill (Thracians-Gallic) 48-4. Good game to my opponent who got extremely unlucky with the cohesion rolls.

Antigonid spirits were not initially very high as they faced a Thracian army with excellent medium foot guarding a large stream with a massive hill to fall back on (all things that Pikes and Lancers are allergic to). To compensate, the Antigonids brought extra cavalry and skirmishers to utilize mobility to find a crossing spot. The Thracians pulled back under threat of missile fire, and the Rhomphaia forces were viciously harassed by Cretans and horse archers. The Thracian light troops occupied a marsh and managed to surprise and rout a unit of Thureos. Covered by the marsh, the Chosen Warriors of the Thracians forded the river, nearly swapping places with the Antigonid army. The pikes turned around and marched to meet them, while the cavalry and light troops distracted the rest of the Thracian host. Temporarily outnumbered, the Thracian chosen warbands attempted to fall back, but were hit with some extremely unlucky cohesion rolls. Promptly pursued by pikes and elephants, the warbands were quickly broken and the day won.

The main clash of the two armies. Cavalry and skirms on one side of the river, pikes and elephants on the other.

I think having the option of 2 armies (with a different ally selection) of heavily represented armies is a good compromise.
I'm out tomorrow, but I'll have a look at the army lists on Friday to see what we might be talking about with this. :wink:
If we take as our benchmark 6 armies from a nation in an army list for a particular tournament section, we get this list . . .

Classical Antiquity
Achaemenid Persian 6
Carthage 9
Greek 7
Roman 6
Seleucid 6

Late Antiquity
Hunnic (including Hepthalites) 6
Roman 6

Early Middle Ages
Arab 14
Byzantine 9

Biblical
N/A

So what we could say is that two armies from these nations will be allowed in a division from Season 6 onwards (they would have to different armies though). I don't propose to put any restrictions on the allies as it will cause me some extra fiddling about (PMs to players etc) and delay during the army allocation process.

Comments on this idea please.
