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.

Division B

Geffalrus (Palmyra) defeats devoncop (Jewish Revolt) 66-37

Good game amigo.

Armor and Archers vs. Faith in the Divine. Sadly for the people of Judea, this time around, the physical defeated the spiritual. Though not without great cost.

After many turns of absolute slaughter, the remains of the Rebellion take on the last of the Palmyran Royal Guard:

Division D

MikeMarchant (Roman 24-196 CE) beat uneducated (Jewish 64 BC-6 AD) 64/49

A realy brutal bruiser of a battle, this one, which could easily have gone either way.

The challenge for the Romans was the terrain. The centre of the field was dominated by large patches of rough ground and not an ideal dance floor for Roman legionaries when facing an army heavy with medium foot. So, the romans deployed the majority of their forces wide to the left flank, where the field was clear. Behind the centre of the field, on a hill, some auxiliaries sat watching, backed up by a little cavalry, and then behind the right side of the field, on another hill, a few more auxiliaires were watching, also backed up with a little cavalry.

The Jewish army crossed the field to meet the main Roman force, intent on a plan of divide and conquer, and the legions managed to turn their line to face just in time. The Jewish forces were packed with lights who, while irritating, offered little to the brawl that followed. It was back and forth as the initial success of the Romans on the open ground was lost as the fight pushed closer to the rough ground. It was then that the auxiliaries stationed behind the centre of the the field and to the right of the field were given orders to march to the sound of the Eagles.

The Roman legions, aided by auxiliaries in reserve manage to completely wrap the Jewish right flank, and then, in two waves, the other forces arrived on the Jewsih left flank. The Romans now had both flanks enveloped and soon after closed the circle.

On another day, on another field, against another opponent, this would have signalled the end of the battle, but the forces of ZIon fought like lions, and causalties were heavy on both sides. Brutal toe to toe melee, with the pendulum of advantage swinging back and forth, continued on and on as the Roman encircelement strangled tighter and tighter.

At the end of the day, the fanatical faith of the Jewish forces was insufficient to overcome the fury of Mars and Mithridates and they simply dissolved into pitiful bands of bloodied refugees, crying out that their god had abandoned them. And so, the Romans demosntrated the superiority of their religion - for when a god abandons them, there's always another waiting around the corner.


Epic battle, uneducated - 'The Battle of the rRoamd Quarter' as we've chosen to call it - excellently played. Bad luck, and I look forward to our next.


Best Wishes

Division D

General Shapur - Kingdom of Soissons 461-486 AD defeats uneducated - Jewish 64 BC-6 AD: 46-2

The 2 battle lines met on open ground and in 2 turns a series of catastrophic morale check cascades sealed the fate of the Jews.
Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too. M.A.

Division C

Sunnyboy (Ostrogoths 493-561 AD) beat paulmcneil (Ancient British 60 BC-80 AD) 51-24

Tough battle with the screaming Celtic hordes making good use of two wooded areas flanking the map to confuse and disconcert the Gothic horsemen. Out in the open however, the valiant loose order warbands of the Briton could not match the Ostrogoth armoured lancers and were put to flight.

Thanks for the game Paul, well played!

Div B

devoncop (Jewish Revolt) beat Morbio (Ptolemaic) 52% to 27%

A complicated broken desert map helped the zealots and helped by a wide flanking movement around the Ptolemaic left the Revolt won the day.

Many thanks to my opponent for a tough fight.

Div B

rexhurley (Numidian/Moorish) drew with devoncop (Jewish Revolt) 59/43. In a swirling complicated mass fight of medium infantry v lights the copper laid down the law and got the upper hand, however the djinni swirled and ebbed and kept at it. Unfortunately although he pushed all the way to my edge of the map the copper then disappeared into the woods never to emerge again while the Djinni screamed and whirled in frustration... with 2 turns to go we agreed a draw as I wasn't going into the woods to play and he wasn't coming out. Thanks for the laughs and entertainment Ian off to our next encounter in classic *-)

(2-2)
