Played intro scenario twice so far, love it... 6-3 then 6-2... difficult for Byzantines, but got close first attempt by being aggressive, lost 2 leaders though... 2nd attempt didn’t get close... need to try and use my Heavy Infantry more

Third attempt: Byzantine win 6 banners to 3
Despite Sassanid charge, Byzantine first strike helped its left flank destroy majority of the Sassanid flank. Sassanids recovered somewhat with repeated heavy cavalry charges but they could not recover from 5:1 down.

Byzantine HI also we’re able to advance but realised no use against evading Light bow cavalry

Vittoria Bizantina 6-3. I bizantini danno inizio alla battaglia compattando le fila della cavalleria sulla loro sinistra. I Sassanidi superiori in cavalleria pesante caricano immediatamente ma la cavalleria media bizantina evade rendendo vana la carica nemica. E' la volta della cavalleria bizantina di caricare e stavolta con maggior successo. I cavalieri sassanidi arretrano fino a bordo campo e perdono un loro generale. In mancanza di meglio i sassanidi avanzano timidamente con la loro fanteria e mandano gli arcieri a cavallo a disturbare la cavalleria bizantina. Ottengono lo scopo ma la cavalleria media bizantina ha ancora abbastanza forza per eliminare le ultime unita' catafratte sassanidi.

The Sassanid right charged against the scattered Byzantines but they retreat and formed a line with the rest of the army, holding the ground. There was a large fight on the center of the map between heavy and cataphract cavalry, with the upper side going to the Byzantines thanks to a leader loss, for a Byzentine win 6-3.

Played last Thursday.  Game went very similar to actual battle.  Sassanids won 6 banners to 2 for the Byzantines.  Byzantine left flank cavalry was almost completely destroyed and one of its leaders was killed.  See my blog for some pictures --  ColCampbell's Barracks

Played solo, but crappy cards for the Byzantine and excellent ones for the Sassanid made this a 6-0 walkover and one of the quickest games of C&C I have ever played. Line Command, Leadership Any Section with Mounted Charge followed by Leadership Any Section with Mounted Charge and a bit of cleanup and it was all over.
