Another bad day in Sparta.

macsen (Later Alexandrian Macedonian) 9/37 defeated Grudgebringer (Classical Spartans) 39/32

Alexander maneuvered his army on to a hill with a lot of broken ground on the left facing the Spartan camp in the corner of the map. The Spartans faced being slowly shot to death (Thermopylae any one?) so were forced to engage in to broken ground and up hill. The Rhomphas were particularly effective and the sperior pikes had a field day. The Spartans fought bravely but were eventually broken and annihilated.

Better luck next time Grudge :wink:

Cheers

My Hindus (9/47) beat Turk's Greeks (32/32).
Rama Himself lent a hand in this one...

That yet for a while rivers may run clean and birds build their nests,
Ere Night comes.’

Perhaps replacing the dice rather than the leader would help more! :P

I'm fairly certain there is something in the rules about the use of witches and elephant dung (quickly amends rules) :roll:

Radio has made one challenge and is therefore only moderately slack :wink: .

I get it, LOEG and all is keeping us busy so will give it another week before I start pm'ing people, including myself :roll: .

cheers

macsen
Now 18 days in still no challenges from Fedem and Batesmotel, only one from Radio. Everyone else has made challenges and most of the games finished.

I'm staying with what I've got, two challenges posted for Grudgebringer and Aristides pw Spring
Now I'm confused does this mean I got off lightly. :shock: I wondered why you hadn't posted the result, I presumed you were overwhelmed with LOEG activity.

Confusion abounds... I thought our games were from several test games I had started at the same time, mostly with greeks and romans - you 'also' played one of my roman ones (the draw that we played at the same time). But it's certainly possible I answered your Spring Challenge with the wrong army. Unfortumately I have no Spartans - Indians plus Persian mercenaries. I assume the game will be called 'no-game'...

radio (Lydians) 31/39 vs iandavidsmith (Greco-Bactrians) 34/31

Bactrian C-in-C was killed and their camp was looted.

It was a really close, hardfought game.
