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 C

Geffalrus (Antigonids) beat lydianed (Gallic) 58-30. Very good game to my opponent.

The battlefield was heavily restricted by a mountain range along the left side of the map. Fortunately the ground was flat enough for our pikes and warbands to be quite happy about fighting each other. Our infantry lines collided while the cavalry hung back in the rear. I had some initial success on my right flank, before an elephant unit rolled very poorly vs. a warband and broke in two combats. This disrupted the other elephant, who was then flank charged by the warband. This in turn Disrupted part of my phalanx, who were in turn flank charged by the rampaging hero warband. At which point, my CinC died trying to rally a pike unit and pretty much that entire section of the army broke and ran.

Fortunately, the other flank was unaffected, and I was able use my light cavalry to finish breaking the fragmented warbands that had been saved by the collapse of my pike line. At the end of the day, my Xystophoroi cavalry were able to do a bit more damage than the Gallic Noble cavalry, and I inched my way over the victory threshold. Definitely a stressful affair. :lol:

See if you can spot what's about to go terribly wrong for me.........

Division D

MikeMarchant - Roman 105-25 BC beat uneducated (Jewish 163-111 BC) - 64/24

A whirlwhind of a scrap where the result really doesn't do uneducated justice.

It was a steady tromping advance by the legionaries in the centre until contact on a broad clear hill. The opening rounds looked bad for the Romans as the Jewish Zealots cut their way through a legioanry unit against the odds and the Roman right flank started to look under threat. On the left flank, the Romans accidentally advaned a cavalry force behind a hill, unseen by the enemy, and swept into the Jewish flank just in time. The pike units on the Roamn flank held out bravely but evetually crumbled at the flanking cavalry, supported by infantry, wrapped round. The Roman right fell to the Zealots and Jewsih cavalry but by then it was too late. On the final turn there was an almost complete collapse of the Jewish army and their general was captured and sent off into exile in a jelly bean grove on Crete, for a sweet retirment.

Great game, undeducated, a pleasure to play with you.


Best Wishes

Mike

Division C

Sunnyboy (Jewish 167-164 BC) beat Karvon (Achaemenid Persian 419-329 BC) 61-39

Tough battle with the Persian cavalry trampling a significant portion of the Jewish host. However, inspired by religious fervour the Zealots carried the day overwhelming the main Persian battle line.

Thanks for the game!

Division D

Tresantes (Pyrrhic) defeats SawyerK (Seleucid) 53-27

A good scrap, with some rolls going my way. One of SawyerK’s pike units (veteran, with a general) survived being hit from the front by one pike, in the flank by an elephant, and another pike in the other flank, all at once. It went on to rout two of those attackers before the battle was lost elsewhere...
Thanks for the game!

harveylh - Ptolemaic 166-56 BC defeats Cunningcairn - Macedonian 328-321 BC, 41-8.

A closer game than the score appears as the Macedonian pikes had nearly broken through the Ptolemaic center. Good game.

Division C

Geffalrus (Antigonid) and MorkinTheFree (Pyrrhic) fight to a bloody, apocalyptic draw of 55-53. Tip of the hat to my opponent for an incredible match.

Buckle up folks, here comes the story. For unknown reasons, we decided to fight over a hilly area at the base of a mountain. I guess I was trying to tell him to stay the f#$@ out of Macedon, but I'm not sure it stuck. The mountain featured a small indirect pass that allowed units to ride way around and outflank the other army. Both Morkin and I recognized this, we both sent cavalry to exploit it, and both realized that our sneaky plan was foiled. So back to the main battle we went.

Morkin's army had a much larger infantry force. MUCH larger. To win, I hoped to leverage my superior pikes to beat his pikes, and my Thureos to thrash his Italian Foot and thus claim the large patch of rough terrain in the center. That plan worked........sort of. I was able to overcome his Average Pikes.......eventually, but my Thureos got out of position killing a few Italians, and were in turn swarmed by a tide of hungry hungry hoplites. Backed up by conscript pikes, Morkin's meaty right fist landed on my weakening left flank and smashed it to bits. And before my victorious cavalry and phalanx could reform a new battle line, the hungry hungry hoplites swarmed them. And so it became a race. Trapped between Morkin's returning cavalry and his avenging hoplites, my remaining pikes and cavalry now tried to crush Morkin's cavalry and make a stand on the high ground of the mountain pass.

Once again, I failed to overrun Morkin's forces fast enough, and while I succeeded in putting all of his cavalry to flight, Morkin's hoplites caught me for what felt like the twentieth time. Before they could form square, pike units were flanked and routed. Finally, the Antigonid Royal Guard formed up in square on a hill to buy time while the rest of the army escaped. Surrounded by the Epirote horde, the veteran pikes held out (barely) until nightfall. Meanwhile, throughout ALL OF THIS, an Antigonid catapult crew sat alone and unused behind a few trees back in the start zone. The Antigonid general.......had perhaps not realized that trees block catapult shots, and so the artillery crew spent the entire battle doing absolutely nothing. Then again, maybe they were better off considering what happened to everyone else.......

The field of slaughter as darkness falls:
