We've only completed one game, which is why I hadn't reported yet. We'll see what we can do about the second although work have called me in tonight, which has screwed my weekend :(

BTW I've seen everyone's reporting blocks lost.....you're welcome to but they don't count in the preliminary rounds of this format, so you can save yourselves the effort.

Game 1
BrentS (Persian) Banners won 6
Tomek (Greek) Banners won 4

A really enjoyable and hard fought battle. Tomek had the upper hand early with two MFM's to whittle me away and then two Double Times to charge both flanks of hoplites into my lines. I was able to retire my right flank into the hills in the centre but was 3-1 down and looking to be in serious trouble. Clash of Arms was the winner......my left flank survived the Double Timing Spartan hoplites (just) and wiped them out on battle back and then Clash. A fluffed First Strike had me worried but a leader kill helped my cause. Well played by Tomek and tense.

Game 2
BrentS (Greek) 6 banners
Tomek (Persian) 2 banners

Hard for the Persians in this one if things don't go right with cards and dice and there wasn't much Tomek could do about this one. The hoplites just moved in to nullify the Persian ranged superiority (Order Mounted x 2 really helped with mobilising both flanks) and pounded away.

Game 1
Gonzo as Greeks 5 banners won and 15 figs lost
Armada as Persians 2 banners won and 32 figs lost
Greeks started with several light cards and a missile storm crippled much of the Persian left, but after melee it was still 2-2, but with numerous 1 and 2 point Persians fleeing. The Persian right tried to close, but a 1 point Persian cav with leader picked off on a hill and the leader took an arrow in the eye. The Greeks then had their pick of units to reap for the win.

Game 2
Gonzo as Persians 4 banners and lost 27 figs
Armada as Greeks 5 banners and 19 figs lost
The Greek right closed before much missile action and ground down the Persian left turn after turn. When the Persian right closed and killed an Aux and the Persian cav picked off another wounded one, the Greeks killed the last archer on the Persian left for the win.

Just collating the results so we can get the next round sorted before I go away. In addition to these I don't see a result for scipio1zama-Numantiah either.
