105 Koriyama Castle (1541) - October

plainscape (Red) Banners 1 - Figures 26 + 2 leaders (Seppuku & Personal Challenge)
Mark McG (Yellow) Banners 1 - Figures 15

Not only in an ambush, but no starting Centre cards to get out!
Some steady withdrawal in the Centre got me out of the Ambush, and the flank units cleared the Left woods. Killed off the Samurai Naginata, and their leader Narimitsu committed Seppuku in shame.

However, the real hero were the Mounted Samurai Archers that stood their ground in the centre, and laid waste to the Mori Ashigaru as in battlebacks. Tameyuki challenged Motozumi and defeated him as well. This set the scene for a sweeping Samurai assault to claim victory.

104 Koriyama Castle (1540) - September

Red: plainscape 4 banners, 17 losses
Yellow: Mark McG 3 banner, 16 losses

Well, at least I won one battle this tournament and even this one was really close. It was only on that last move when my opponent's got one of his units killed and then on my turn that I was able to cross the river that I saw any hope of actually winning. It just happened to work out. Thanks to Mark for the fine battles today.

106 Koriyama Castle (1541) - January

Red: plainscape 3 banners, 26 losses
Yellow: g1ul10 6 banner, 18 losses

Todd started attacking the center section aggressively. I lost one unit and one leader quite soon, but I managed to bring there my cavalry. This gave me some advantage (stature and rank) in the following skirmishes in the center. I luckily eliminated a two figure samurai unit with a lack of honor roll and finally won with a Hold and Shot + Fire Arrows, rolling a total of five red squares on a previously intact Samurai unit. But honestly archers were rolling red squares from the beginning, on both sides.

2 matches left.. Brent vs Dan

There are no Finals in this comp, so highest score at the end of the Rounds wins.

Also, time to turn your minds to the next competition?
More Genpei Wars?
Some fan scenarios?
A BattleLore 1st ed tournie instead?

Sorry, I'd sent Dan an email a coulple of weeks ago and got busy and forgot to follow up. I'm just starting night shifts this coming week so as usual I'll be completely unavailable until the following week but will try to get them done then if Dan's free. By all means, though, start organising the next tournament. I won't enter as I'll be away for most of May (Japan....lots of Genpei War related stuff planned :) ).

I've actually done all of the Genpei War Vassal files and the playbook....just been dithering releasing them but I can make them available if you want to use any of them. Some older Sengoku Jidai scenarios I designed that are currently in the module could also do with an update with new graphics and expansion units and I'll work on getting those done before I go.

Brent.

Sorry I did not follow up with Brent either - been sidetracked and also started Ancient OT2016 and thought I was done here. Let me know your earliest availability Brent - I do have some time tomorrow if you happen to have some.

105 Koriyama Castle (1540) - October
Yellow - BrentS - 3 banners, 20 figures lost
Red - Cavie - 4 banners, 15 figures lost

It was looking to be the typical Yellow side win through getting the 3 Ashigaru Spearmen off the board through the river passage but game turned around with a lucky Samurai bowmen shot to eliminate the 3rd unit trying to cross over.

Without going into more detail I would suggest watching the log file to see some interesting twists and turns in this one that showed the Red side does have a chance of winning. It was a fun game and the dice (in my favor) definitely played a big roll in the outcome.
