Thank you!

I am sorry for that situation. As I said it is fully my fault and I'll not do it again.

I'll update the points, but not the draw.

Please don't do this again!

Game 2
Marco (Rome) - 7
soul1st (Pontus) - 2

The Romans began with an inspired command on the right, advancing the Legionnaires and eliminating the Pontic Heavy Chariot with an amazing (and lucky) missile attack.
Pontic advanced his center, and then both sides maneuvered on the flanks, resulting in one loss for the Romans but three more for Pontic.
Pontic advanced his center, but the Romans pressed ahead on the right, pushing that flank to the edge of the battlefield. The Pontic Leader Aristion fought bravely there, eliminating one Legionnaire and severely damaging another, before fleeing the field when his Heavy Cavalry died beneath him. Counterattacking the Pontic Heavy Command, the Roman Leader Domitius Calvinus pushed his heavily damaged Legionnaires to force the remaining light units from the battlefield, thus securing victory.

Game 2
G1ul10 (Rome) - 7
LeonardoAngelo (Pontus) - 1

In the first game Romans retreat in a "catenaccio" formation. The Pontus attack with a double-time but the rolls are poor. The Roman reaction is devastating and wins the game. In the second game, the Romans have a more aggressive attitude and attack on the two wings, collecting the necessary VPs there. Chariots were more a liability than an asset.

Thanks to Leo for reminding me of the game... I was missing the deadline :-) In the second game, for some reason, we had to resync so the log file is only partial.

Round 4 - JD103Nicopolis47BC
Game 1
Benlore (Roman): 5 banners
Viridovilas (Pontic): 7 banners
The Romans took the early advantage and attacked hard on the left and right flanks stunning the Pontic leaders Drmchtes and Aristion. However, the two pronged advance significantly stalled and the Pontic general Pharnacles rallied a heavy legion in the centre and drove a devastating wedge through the Roman ranks to victory.
Game 2
Benlore (Pontic): 7 banners
Viridovilas (Roman): 1 banner
Early light skirmishes on both sides drew the first blood and a banner each, but then the Pontic general Pharnacles double timed into the Roman left flank to gather a few Pontic banners. Before the Romans could rally, Drmchtes and Aristion leading the Pontic heavy cavalry thrusted, deeply into the wounded Roman flanks, taking the Roman leader Sextus to his grave, to deliver a quick and decisive victory for the Pontic masses.

Game 1

Travis (Roman): 7 banners

der_mandarin (Pontic): 1 banner

After a heroic performance from an Aux on the Roman left took out the heavy cavalry elements of the Pontic right, this was was decided when the XXXVI Legion was able to close with the Pontic left, who was unable to escape the heavy infantry.



Game 2

Travis (Pontic): 7 banners

der_mandarin (Roman): 6 banners

Pontic left was able to just barely escape the onslaught of the XXXVI Legion and eliminate the HI for an early lead. However, this lead soon evaporated with the slow and steady advance of Roman units elsewhere, until in a desperate move, the Pontic HI was able to advance and withstand the final Roman assaults. Romans were within a block of victory a couple of times, made for a very exciting game.

A-historically both battles included a lot of cavalry action on the flanks. These heavy chariots are always tempting - so strong and yet so fragile. Fast and furious games - of the kind that brings fun and leaves you wanting more.

Game 1
Marco (Pontic) - 4 Banners
Soul1st (Roman) - 7

The Romans scored some early hits against the Pontic chariots and a HC unit. The Romans then concentrated on their right flank. Attacking with the XXXVI legion. Pontus took 2 Roman units and launched an attack on the Roman center using double time.

The logfile is split into two parts, because of synchronization problems halfway the game

Both games were a slug fest with the Pontic army claiming a leader each game. Tough game for Rome when starting down one leader and then losing another making it 3 leaders to 1 about mid game.

Game 1
Mark McG (Pontic): 7
Michael V (Roman): 4

most of the early action was on the Pontic Right, with the Pontic's trading a Chariot for Medium Infantry. Ultimately, the Pontics cleaned up on this flank, eliminating 4 units and the leader, and then crossing to the centre for the winning banner.

On the Pontic Left, the 36th Legion doubletimed forwards, but couldn't close with the evading cavalry. A mounted charge took one Heavy Infantry, but at the cost of the Chariots, and eventually the Heavy cavalry. The final indignity was a Pontic Light infantry evading away with 2 hits, and the follow up pila attack was a banner, causing his loss.

Romans won the Left, but Pontics won the right bigger.

Game2
Mark McG (Roman): 4
Michael V (Pontic): 7

Totally different game. Legio 36 doubletimed up to the Pontic line first move, and crushed unit after unit. Roman were up 4-0 and things were going well until Calvinus pushed his luck and tested himself against Phanacles. 3 hits weren't quite good enough, and the battle back got 4 hits, killed Calvin, and the ensuing reaction wiped out the 36 Legio. 4-4

I then advanced the Roman left, but failed to get to grips with the slippery Pontics. Meanwhile, the Pontic cavalry slid around the Roman right, and a mass Mounted charge took 3 banners in one round. 7-4

EZpickins vs Lemming100

game 1 Lemming100 7 (Rome) EZpickins 6 (Pontus)
game 2 EZpickins 7 (Rome) Lemming100 6 (Pontus)

Two very close games that could have gone either way right up to the final banner.

In the first game Rome pulled in the left wing to attack the Pontus centre with the heavy troops. They pushed almost to the baseline but were held off and ended up losing out in the war of attrition on the wings.

In the second game Pontus concentrated their Cavalry on the weak Roman centre and over several moves, following a cavalry charge and with the support of the Pontus centre troops, destroyed it entirely. The isolated Roman wings fought back bravely and racked up enough banners to defeat Pontus in the nick of time.

Round 4 Game 2 Nicopolis 49 BC

Game 1
Player MichalK (Roman): #7 banners
Player Azzy (Pontic): #6 banners


Very close and exciting game where my dice failed me so many times. My veteran legio of course moved forward and wreak havoc on Pontic left, but in the end unlucky lc2d killed my leader... I was close to despair but did not give up and tried to regain initiative on the other side. Easier said than done - 4d attack on unsupported chariot failed (no escape route) and I was sure this is it. But in the end dice abandoned Azzy , I survived and finished the game...

Game 2
Player MichalK (Pontic): #7 banners
Player Azzy (Roman): #3 banners


Completely different game. As Pontic I had all needed cards, - Order Light Troops, Double Time, Mounted Charge. Bloody and fast it was.

Round 4 Game 2 Nicopolis 49 BC

Player TTK (Pont): #7 banners

Player Stormwalker (Rome): #6 banners

the scenario is still not played quickly
I see it in the small mobility of the center of Pharnac Pontic

The game went with a margin of 1 banner of Rome, I kept catching up...
For example, the first turn is the first shooting of Roman archers and there are no Chariots on the right... SNUF!

There were unfinished units of 1 block from all sides

There was a terrible slaughter of legionaries with Chariots. (in final only 4 blocks HI Rome stand in play)
Then there were the mounted attacks of Rome.

When it came to the endshpil, the score was 4:4...

Pharnac took two HI guard and one MI to the convergence with the Rome Legion MI (settlers) are...
At the first attack, Pharnac was killed, and his guard remained heroic in the amount of 1 block and slaughtered 3 units in the end, although the First Strike came in time...

Thank Marcin for playing.

Range strike and First Strike nailed a HCH on Roman Left. Pontine center shifted to right and infantry battle ensued. Several big rolls with a Spartacus goping well for Pontines but a 3 flag roll on Roman MC and a 1 ldr hit on another battle decided the game.
Thanks to Greg for good match as always.

Pntus started with attacks with their HC and Chariots on each side, doing some damage, but a strong bb followed by a DT from the Roman right Killed both HC asnd chariots and nailed the leader trying to escape through HI. Pontine cav on other flank, charged and did more damage before the chariot was killed and the HC withdrew with one block. The game settled to attrition on both flanks to final score.
