I will be doing the Second Time Control check tomorrow but I think it unlikely that I will need to make any more changes now.

Division E

Kerait (Roman with Bithynian allies) defeats rs2excelsior (Samnites with Etruscan allies) 62-55

Close match, and I wasn't optimistic about this one at the start. The Samnites deployed their usual horde of medium foot on a large hill with rough terrain. I placed a token force of thureoporoi and Spaniards on the hill to hold them off and placed my legionaries on a plateau of intermediate height abutting the great hill. The Samnites surged forward on the hill and broke my medium foot on the hill almost immediately with their fearsome impact POA.

Meanwhile, on their right flank, the legionaries had to contend with Etruscan cavalry, which caused significantly more damage than expected, delaying the reinforcement of legionaries to the plateau when the buoyant Samnites began pouring onto it to face the legionaries. I thought I had lost when the melee commenced and losses mounted on both sides because Samnite manpower was much greater than mine. But the morale of the Samnites' Etruscan allies broke and they fled, and with more legionaries free to fight the Samnite foot there was a collapse of morale on one side of the Samnite army. A large proportion of Samnite foot fled into the woods and never returned, allowing those legionaries to wheel about and fight the remaining Samnites on more advantageous terms.

After the two armies had ground each other down substantially, the Romans were ahead a little, allowing them to win.

Thanks for this fun game, rs2excelsior.

Division E

Kerait (Romans with Bithynian allies) defeats DryNick (Hannibal in Africa) 61-38

The game felt somewhat tarnished after veteran African spearmen, the cream of the Carthaginian infantry, fragmented after a single charge from the Roman legionaries. This created a hole in the Carthaginian lines and facilitated Roman victory.

That said, I believe that the strategy I learnt from Snugglebunny's videos to face Carthage with as much infantry (and little else) as possible paid off as it did against deeter. DryNick invested a lot of money in lights, elephants and cavalry which much reduced the size of his main battle-line. The Romans could absorb damage from lights and cavalry through sheer numbers, the length of their line prevented easy flanking, and elephants didn't make much of an impact because there was no Roman cavalry to smash.
