Final 1
Sertorian (Mark McG): 7 banners 21 blocks lost
Roman (Tomek): 5 banners 29 blocks lost

Sertorians dithered around since they started with nothing useful for Herennius (the Useless) to spring his ambush.
Under a missile barrage the Romans advanced, and the Sertorian cavalry charged on the Right, which cost me all my cavalry, but destroyed all his foot. (3:3)

Finally picked up a Left card, but the opportunity was gone, The Sertorian flanks had collapsed, and the Roman cavalry was lapping at the flanks. Things looked very grim for Sertorius.

Then.. the dice changed
The Roman cavalry fluffed a roll, and Sertorius sprang forth slaughtering everything he attacked. 3 strength units lifted off the map. The coup de grace was an AUX getting 2 Blue hits on 3 dice as the MED Cavalry evaded. I took 4 banners for the loss of 2, and that was the game. It was like divine intervention..

Did you play the game or it has been rescheduled? I'd love to watch it but I did not have time yesterday.

Final 2
Sertorian (Tomek): 7 banners
Roman (Mark McG): 4 banners

Battle with an outcome that easily could have been different. An early clash on the right annihilated the whole roman right along with the brave Afranius. However that left the center open for an onslaught by the mighty Pompey but alas - he was denied a clash. Finally he managed to bring his legions forward but meanwhile Perpenna and Herennius a.k.a the Useless destroyed his flanks. Technically one of the flanks was only pulled back and the other just a stray group of Syrian archers but that was of little consolation for the tired soldiers. Sertorius was victorious again.

Congratulations to Tomek on a well played final, and a rather dramatic climb from 7th place to take out the championship.
Well Done!
