Long and bloody game. Being Persians I knew I need to attack in open sop where I have cards. It was right wing (when playing Persians I usually attack on left, via mountains). It went initially very well, but then double time hit me in flank. I responded with DT and finally it was fight to the last banner. Good game and Persians (also historically) not without chances for a win!

From Instagram @warboard: 8 to 6 trophies victory for Macedon at Issus 333BC. Very costly and almost a disaster, as the Greeks began the battle by attempting to skirmish and probe against an army half again as large as theirs and massively out matching them in the number of light, fast units. Once the historical attack in the centre using both heavy infantry and cavalry belatedly began, the tide was turned, and not a moment too soon for Macedon. The Persians conducted some inspired and devastating maneuvers, and their troops in the centre fought valiantly, but once the medium infantry was gone, there was no one left who could protect the Great King.
