Division A

harveylh - Ptolemaic 166-56 BC defeats dkalenda - Lysimachid 320-281 BC, 50-21.

A large water feature mitigated somewhat the Lysimachid lancers and elephant. A good game as always.

Division D

uneducated (Jewish 163-111 BC) beats Barrold713 (Pergamene 190-129 BC) 65-46%

Rubicon

I stood beside this general again, and when I stand, I stand beside a fast horse with 3 days of provisions. This is what I saw that day.

The General woke terrified he would lose. The North and South were divided by a river, Rubicon. The Jews found themselves to the South, and the General felt they would all be slaughtered in battle. South of the Rubicon, to the East, were some hills. Since an offensive was out of the question, the General instructed his troops to form a perimeter along the slopes of the hill and prepare a defence.

Fear quickened the troops, and in terror, they prepared their line as though preparing their own graves. The Pergamene advanced from the North West, seeing the weakness in the corner of the Jewish defences. Pergamene cavalry took position across the Rubicon on Elephanta Obscura, ready to race behind Jewish lines the moment the right was weakened to reinforce the brunt of the fighting. By some extraordinary good fortune, divine providence even, an intrepid Jewish skirmisher ventured onto the brow of Elephanta Obscura and, to the horror of the Jewish commander, revealed an entirely unseen wing of the Pergamene army, replete with elephant! Though troops were in dire need on the Jewish left, the horror of this masterfully concealed army kept the fanatics still on the Jewish right, unable to help their desperate brethren on the left.

The Jews, foreseeing certain death, refused to approach the Pergamene on their left, and endured arrow after arrow as warband gradually eroded the Jewish wall. Due to an initially terrible first contact with the enemy, the Jewish corner held turn after turn of fighting, surrounded by warband just waiting to pounce when the Jewish nerve failed.

Then the Pergamene surprised the Jews yet again. Using the terrain to obscure his movements, the lately arriving Pergamene light foot poured through the woods protecting the South of the Jewish position. The fanatics were desperate to leave the right to assist, and eventually they were able to defeat the medium foot brought to oppose them. The fanatics turned their attention to the forest and only just in time to reinforce the collapsing West wall.

The general survived. The troops who lived thanked the river, Rubicon.

Thank you very much, Barrold713. The battle could have gone either way. If you had only been luckier with your first attack against the corner, the battle would have been yours.

Div A

Triarii - Dailami 928-1055 AD (Arab (Syria/Iraq) 1009-1150 AD allies beats GDod - Ghaznavid 962-1187 AD (Turkish allies 600-1036 AD) 65 - 46

GDod - The elephant whisperer - completely trashed the Arab centre with 5 elephants and 3 Generals so intimidating the Dailami that even the veterans disrupted when the elephants so much as looked sideways at them. Despite Gdod's pachyderm success both Ghaznavid wings took to their heels and the Dailami just held it together.
A game very much in the balance until the end. Thanks to GDod.
