Early Middle Ages: winners post your results here

Please use the following format when posting your results. Be sure to indicate which division you are playing in, which armies were involved in the battle, and the final score of the battle. It should look very much like this . . .

Division A

hidde (Romans) beat stockwellpete (Carthaginians) 60-46


It may seem a trivial point but please do not report the result as 46-60. It is more helpful if everyone gets used to reporting their results in the same way to avoid any confusion, particularly when an adjudication may be necessary.

Div B

devoncop (Dailami) beat Youngr (Sassanid Persians) 60% to 31%.

The hilly rocky desert map with a stream through the middle did the Persian Jumbo's no favours at all.

Thanks to Youngr for a great battle against the odds !

Division B

sunnyboy (Byzantine 740-903AD) beat devoncop (Dailami 928-1055 AD & Khorasanian 821-1003 AD Allies) 64-46

The fortunes of both sides waxed and waned over the course of the battle; the advantage early was with the Dailami who won the cavalry fight. However, the Byzantine skoutatoi crushed their opponents in the centre of the field and began plodding across the map trying to catch their nimbler opponents. Fortuitously on turn 24, the sole remaining unit of Tagmata lancers was able flank and rout a unit of Ghilman and a unit of light cavalry reaching the magical 60% at the death.

Thanks for an enjoyable game!

Division B

devoncop (Dailami/Khorasanian allies ) drew with Geffalrus (Polish/Viking Allies) 22% to 40%

Early Dailami success in peppering the Polish line rapidly turned into something else entirely as the Viking Huscarls and Polish Lancers drove unstoppably forward...a general retreat was ordered to save whatever could be saved and the Poles were only a turn or 2 away from total victory but nightfall saved the Dailami and their exhausted horses.....

Division B

devoncop (Dailami) drew with IMC (Viking (Ireland) 8% to 28%.

Only a large forest defending a small ford over a river saved the Dailami from a crushing from a huscarl advance as the restricted width of the battlefield due to a third of the map being transected lengthwise by the aforementioned river prevented the Dailami Cavalry being able to manouvre sufficiently. After loosing a few arrows the Dailami were pursued back to the ford where a gallant rearguard saved the majority of the army but it was an inauspicious day.

Well played IMC.

Div B

Geffalrus (Polish and Vikings) defeats MorkinTheFree (Romano-British) 43-7

Morkin and I agreed at the start of the game, while we were wrapping up the Antigonid/Pyrrhic slugfest, to keep detailed notes of our thoughts and plans for each turn of the game. Which was a cool idea. The battle was shaping up to be a slow race between his warbands (could the kill my shieldwalls) and my Vikings (could they kill his subRomans) on opposite flanks, until my Polish cavalry spotted a flanking opportunity and exploited the below average morale of the SubRoman Foot to rout multiple units in a line. Condolences to my worthy opponent who saw entire sections of his battle line vanish in a horrific chain rout.

The confusing situation of a Polish army actually having quality infantry.

Division C

General Shapur - Ghaznavid 962-1187 AD (no allies) defeats KiFi - French 888-1049 AD (no allies) : 51 - 3

The french are met, caught in a deep stream facing elephants and grenadiers - KiFi, you are a good sport to press the advance in true impetuous French fashion.

Division A

harveylh - Arab (Umayyad) 685-750 AD (no allies) defeats Cunningcairn - Viking 900-1049 AD (Irish ally), 41-8.

Dailami inf were too much for Viking Berserkers and a relatively open battlefield made the Arab Lancers even more effective. Tough map for the Vikings.

Division B

devoncop (Dailami/Khorasanian allies) beat Nijis (Arab Abbasid) 61% to 37%

A much needed victory was swung in favour of the Dailami after the initial collapse of their right to sustained archer fire by the arrival of two elephants on the Dailami left which smashed through the Arab lancer contingent holding that flank allowing the Dailami infantry in the centre, which had been wavering, to hold long enough for the Dailami left to roll up the Arab infantry centre.

Another good contest.

Thanks to my opponent.
