Division B

rexhurley (Numdians) defeats IMC (Galatians) 43/18 in a gallant attempt the garlic swillers formed a Ney Square and advanced against all comers, just as they reached my base line their army and morale evaporated. Certainly was a good go by IMC.

Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Abbasids) defeats pantherboy (Indians) 63-41

These Abbasids were a much better lot to fight the Indians with than the Kingdom of Soissons. Cheap Spearmen could beat the elephants in melee if they survived Impact, and masses of skirmishers could absorb much of the arrow storm to protect the rest of the army. Still a close run thing, ultimately secured by a combination of the improbable stand of one of my units of Veteran Dailami Foot against a generalled up elephant in the open until flankers could arrive, and an all along the line charge of Raw Muslim Spearmen against the archer hordes.

Division B

Geffalrus (Palmyra) defeats XLegione (Huns) 45-5 on the worst map for the Huns imaginable. Good game to my valiant opponent who got hosed by the map script.

No joke - the map was close to 50% mountain and forest. Why the Huns and Palmyrans decided to fight it out in the Swiss Alps is a complete mystery. The Huns had no room to maneuver, leaving them with few options to combat the armored Palmyran steamroller backed up by a dense phalanx of massed archers. Three warbands made a valiant stand against the Legions and Cataphracts, but were ultimately ground down while the trapped horse archers were smothered by arrows.

Trapped between a rock and a hard place.

Thanks for the game. Nice not to face armoured foes or clouds of skirmishers who can run away.

Div C

Karvon - Arab (Bedouin) 300-636 AD (Sassanid Persian 350-476 AD allies) defeated Ulysisgrunt - Khazar 738-969 AD 48-20 for a score of 4-0

Battle was joined on the steppe with a few scattered patches of boggy ground.

We deployed our heavy horse archers on the left as a delaying force. Further over to the right we deployed our lancers in a single line. Behind the lancers was our reserve of elephants flanking our cataphracts and some camels. Our light lancers were deployed on the far edges of both wings.

The Khazars deployed four groups of a pair of lancers supported by 3 horse archers in a line across the center of the field a single light horse archer unit was posted at the end of each flank.

We immediately sent our large groups of light lancers to drive off their opposing light horse and envelope the enemy line on both flanks. our heavy horse archers shifted towards the center and our lancers and reserves shifted right to mass on and envelope the enemy in support of the leading light horse.

As the lines closed, the elephants came forward and each charged into different enemy lancers to disrupt and break up their formation. The light lancers came in from the flanks and rear, further disrupting and driving enemy horse archers out of position. The lancers and cataphracts charged in or moved to take engaged enemies in the flank. Our heavy horse archers got chased back a bit, drawing some groups away from the main flanking attack.

In the ensuing melees, we lost some of our troops in pinning attacks or during pursuit, but overall, our plan pretty much unfolded as envisioned and the enemy right and center were broken.

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.

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.
