Game 1
FoxK (Niger) 7 banners
GomJabbar (Severus) 2 banners

Severus' strategy was a solid advance up the middle supported by a sweeping cavalry attack around the rear of the Niger forces. The assault started well but the card draw and dice gods were against him and FoxK's Niger forces pushed through the center and obliterated Severus' forces including killing Severus himself.

Niger tried to retreat back their light troops and hold the hills. But FoxK's Severus cavalry quickly swept around the rear and severely punished any retreating Niger units from the hill including killing one of the Niger leaders.

Unlike Round 1 of the tournament where my dice were on fire, in this match my (GomJabbar) dice were terrible. They did turn around near the end of the second game but it was too little too late. Congrats FoxK.

Match 1

Player 1 (Niger) – Warrick – 4 banners won
Player 2 (Severus) – Milla – 7 banners won

Severus starts with a cavalry charge on the left flank, attacking and destroying one of Niger's medium cavalry units.  The centre of both armies then exchange some ineffectual ranged combat.  Severus then advances his entire foot army forwards, inflicting heavy damage on several of Niger's light infantry.  A cavalry charge by Niger results in another of his medium cavalry units being wiped out.  Severus then responds with a cavalry charge of his own - however fierce fighting by one of Niger's leaders manages to rout two of Severus's cavalry, albeit with the loss of his own heavy infantry.  Left without his troops, the leader then chooses to retreat from the battle field.

Niger's hilltop archers manage to pick off another of the weakened cavalry units.  However two of his light infantry succumb to close combat with Severus's archers.  With the path to the hills now clear, Severus advances his foot units to engage in close combat.  Several rounds of skirmishing leads to losses on both sides.

With Severus now close to victory, more close combat in the hills leads to one of Niger's medium infantry being destroyed, and victory is awarded to Severus. 

Match 2

Player 1 (Niger) – Milla – 7 banners won
Player 2 (Severus) – Warrick – 6 banners won

Severus once again starts with a left flank cavalry charge.  Skrmishes with Niger's cavalry leads to a loss of one of Severus's cavalry.  Severus then orders his units to march double time, advancing towards the hills and wiping out two of Niger's light infantry.  Niger's two remaining cavalry on his right flank engage in an attack which results in both of them being destroyed.

Severus then presses forward with his advance towards the hills.  Heavy fighting from both sides results in one of Severus's medium infantry succumbing to Niger's attacks.  Further skirmishes on Severus's left flank results in the loss of his heavy cavalry, with the leader retreating through the woods.  A hail of arrows cut him down before he reaches the safety of his troops.

Severus's cavalry launches another attack on Niger's heavy infantry, however a surprise first stike from Niger cuts one of the cavalry units down.  Severus's remaining cavalry presses on with the attack, killing both Niger's heavy infantry and their leader.

With both sides reeling from heavy losses, Niger decides to leave the safety of the hills with four of his infantry encircling on of Severus's weakened heavy infantry.  A series of attacks routs this unit, with Niger claming victory on the battlefield.

Round 1
Player 1 (Niger) – Rams1984 – 2 banners won
Player 2 (Severus) – Soul1st – 7 banners won

Severus attacked the Niger line and got two banners for light units, but suffered also. After that Severus attacked on their left flank with the cavalry.
Niger responded to no effect and also losing some of his own cavalry. The game came to a conclusion when Niger came from the hills to attack.


Round 2
Player 1 (Niger) – Soul1st - 3 banners won
Player 2 (Severus) – Rams1984 – 7 banners won

Much the same like the previous game only with more caution on both sides. Superior forces concluded the battle in favor of Severus.

Note: For clarity, Left and Right refer to the sides of the battlefield, not the commanders point of view.

Marco - Niger - 5
Dawnreader - Severus - 7


Battle began with ranged attacks from Severus, with Niger immediately withdrawing in MC on the Left. More maneuvering and ranged fire, before Niger DoubleTimed off the hills straight into the opposing leaderless line center, destroying a HI despite an early FirstStrike. More maneuvering gained Niger another Banner, but Severus closed in with a LineAdvance, finally taking a MI. Back and forth fighting on the Right brought Niger more Banners, taking the score to 4-1 in his favor. Finally another LineAdvance brought Severus’ MI and HI into the center and gained three banners in one turn. A big turn for Severus! More battle in the Center, as Severus took more banners and Niger was unable to answer. A last ditch attempt by Niger to grab Banners resulted in one more, before Severus finished the game with MC action on the left.

Marco - Severus - 7
Dawnreader - Niger - 1
Battle commenced with Severus using OrderMounted on the Left to eliminate the MC there, then a LineAdvance to bring MI and HI up to threaten the LI in the center. A DoubleTime by Niger on the Right eliminated an AUX, but failed to eliminate any high value targets. The resulting action saw Niger pull a FirstStrike but still lose three banners and his own life! With only one Banner to go, the Severus moved his MI and HI in the center, to eliminate the LI trapped there. Thanks Dawnreader for flexible scheduling!
