Well done Greg!

As a small addition to the mini tournaments I've created a "Most Wins" section immediately after the "hall of fame" table.
You can find it here.

Final Result:
Greg O: 8
stormwalker: 5

This was a fight in the center, with both flanks playing almost no role. Greg's Romans came hard up the middle and caused some casualties, but were then cut down and the battle was tied 4-4. Stormwalker's Romans then pushed back up the middle and the Gods smile on Greg when an attacke came up short and Stormwalker's leader was cut down on a 2d check. The momentum shifted back to Greg at this point and the win was secured. A very close battle, could have gone either way, as it usually the case with heavy infantry clashing hard.

Semi-final: MichalK vs stormwalker

MichalK: 6 banners
stormwalker: 8 banners

Both players tried as hard as they could to place their forces in the most advantageous positions. However, it quickly became clear that Michal did a better job at this as he positioned his tough AUX units opposite stormwalker's cavalry units. Hence, it was no surprise that the match began with ranged fire attacks, which helped to reduced two of three cavalry units to single blocks. A Rally card and then repositioning of the cavalry units helped a bit to relief the pressure on that wing.

Those initial clashes were followed by a rather long period of ranged fire attacks and passive movements of units as neither of the sides wanted be first to attack. Finally, Michal decided to attack. He managed to inflict heavy losses, however, one of his leaders was killed in the process and he had to regroup around his camp.

A couple of turns later stormwalker decided to attack Michal's main forces. We played in total 3 Double Time cards so as you can imagine not many units were left on the field after that. In the end the camp was taken.

Overall, it was a very close and bloody battle. It suffices to say that at the end the game stormwalker had 4 units reduced to a single block!

Many thanks to Michal: as always it was a pleasure to play with you!

A tough battle, Greg started off with a big cav charge, which Gonzo beat back, then it turned into a big battle in which the Gods favored Greg's Romans.

Greg O 7 banners
plainscape 1 banner

Very tough game for plainscape, all the rolls, and I mean almost all the rolls, were in Greg's favor. Greg's Romans were heavy in the center and mushed forward and then angled to the left pretty much destroying all who stood in front of them.

Great game with high pressure from the beginning.
As said during the game "it's now or never (Elvis Presley)"... a lot of Line command cards with counter attack...
Marcin (stormwalker) got the game but it was intense and really fun.

Gonzo replied the topic: #2413 11 months 4 weeks ago
Gonzo 7 banners
Giulio 3 banners
Initial Range strikes gradually favored Gonzo. Several missile units picked off. Giulio turtled in the back, conceding the terrain. A couple of double banner rolls destroyed one of Giulo MC and LI. Things were getting out of hand with 6-0 score, but a Spartacus almost reversed the fortune. Killing a MI, HI, and leader of Gonzo's. Gonzo moved up an unsupported HI to a 3 pt MC on back row and rolled 2 banners to end game. Thanks to Guilio for the match.

Round 2
MichalK 7 banners won
Togan Alper 1 banner won

That was interesting game - set up took 30 minutes, and the game itself 56 minutes.
Togan concentrated terrain on his left and build very powerful right cavalry wing. I had more dispersed terrain and mainly foot units.

Initial game show a lot of missile attacks and exchanges, then I moved forward on my left which was countered by Togan's cavalry. Unfortunately, in that attack his HC and LDR died and then it was a snowball effect with whole wing collapsing...

Nice way to play CCA scenarios - and thanks to Togan for organizing our game today.

For round 2, what is "defined set of options"? All five choices?


Yes all 5, so in addition to the starting set of units, you should have 4 additional units in this step, plus either an extra leader or extra card

can't access the VASSAL file right now, but use the procedure listed under Round 2, and trash the VSAV file if it does not correspond. I thought I had updated it, but it has been sitting around a few days.

Mark,

some questions:
1) I assume step 2) and 3) are fixed as per attachment and your comment? Or do we play as per above message, and attachment is only example?
2) In attachment you have 2 LI, while in Step 3 3 LI. I assume 2 LI is correct?
2) Step 4 in above message and Vassal file are different - can you please explain?

Thanks!
