Round 5 - The Ravine

gotigerssc (Red) - 4 banners won; 11 figures lost
Jim (Blue) - 1 banner won; 14 figures lost (+1 seppuku)

Tough fight that could have gone either way but probably came down to a couple of well-timed dragon cards disrupting the Takeda advance. Jim was able to get his cavalry around my right flank with a leader attached and eliminate my AA unit, but I stopped the bonus combat with Timid Success. I was then able to use an infantry onslaught card to block the cavalry unit in and eliminate it while the leader committed seppuku. Got lucky and also got a leader off of the spearmen in the center and reduced one of the units down to 1 figure. On my final turn I was able to use the AA at range 4 to claim the win. Had that not been successful, Jim had a cavalry charge that would have put his full strength cav against my wounded right flank and potentially flipped the result of the match.

Round #

Azcat (RED) 3 banners won, 35 blocks lost

Gonzo (BLUE) 9 banners won, 19 blocks lost
Blue takes town and castle in the first 5 turns. Blue range fire effective. Seems blue had a DC response to every Red good card. And Greg did not draw many good cards, but gave a game fight.

Round 5, European Draw

Javelinthrower (RED) 4 banners won, 6 blocks lost

Gileforn (BLUE) 1 banners won, 19 blocks lost or 23 if counting the Turncoat card effects

It was a bad day for the Takeda forces.
Caught in a trap, the infantry leader with a Spearmen unit timely retreated with minimal losses. Realising that storming the ravine head-on would be nigh-impossible, the general Gileforn decided to opt for a slim chance of flanking after breaking through a poorly defended forest housing an Arquebus unit inside. But the attacking Ashigaru Yari unit soon saw that thick groves prove to be a better defence than expected and had to retreat. The retaliatory fire volley from the gunmen halved the fighting force of the Samurai Bowmen Cavalry, and after a second desperate attack from the Yari failed, the Honor also did, forcing the Cavalry to ran away and hide and the Spearmen to retreat, both losing soldiers to desertion rather than bullets.
Seeing an opportunity present itself, a dishonorable band of Samurai Spearmen cavalry changed colors and turned coat, attacking the defenceless infantry leader and taking his head to be turned in for possible Tokugawa reward. The nearby forces, though shocked, instantly retaliated, but suffered great losses due to Samurai's superior training, stature and armor&weapons. Even having lost half of the unit, Samurai Spearmen launched a counter-attack and wiped out all save for one Ashigaru unit, which hid away in a nearby village.
Meanwhile, lacking any other real opton, the surviving righ-flank Ashigaru actually broke throgh the forest and annihilated the ill-fated Arquebus, but in so doing opened themselves up for a coordinated attack by the Tokugawa forces and were all slain. The remaining Takeda forces, spread out and demoralised, ran away to fight another time, and treachery won the day.

All in all, the scenario pivots heavily in favor of Tokugawa forces, which was a nice change of pace after Round 1&3, where the opposite is arguably true. Even then, Gileforn culd have done some serious damage if not for the Tirncoat card and ridiculosly lucky Spearmen surviving assault after assault and wiping out the attackers. Good fun!

Round 5

mk20336 (RED) 1 banners won, 13 blocks lost

Polonus100 (BLUE) 4 banners won, 11 blocks lost

Ashigaru Spearmen went to the right flank along the ravine and engaged Light red units in the woods. Other Ashigaru INF marched backwards. This heroic units and two hors Samurai broke Right wing of the red and despite furious and swift reaction of Red center broke enemy in two charges. Interesting event - Blue must roll 6d for Lack of Honor after destroying Ashigaru spearmen and retreat of its commander.

Round 4

javelinthrower (RED) 1 banners won, 30 blocks lost

Polonus100 (BLUE) 7 banners won, 15 blocks lost

Well played Dragon Card at the beginning stopped Red offensive in the Center and mirrored answer by Blue brought Samurai bow units to the front returning order to dispersed ranks. Advantage in ranged combat enforced enemy to desperate attack but elite Samurai unit despite Ambush card played by Red was broken, winning only 1 banner (earlier First strike by Blue played on Samurai Archer was without result). After the rain of arrows and repelling last charge of lone Samurai horse Archers unit 3 Blue SHBowmen units charged in counter-attack and cut enemy army in pieces.

Round 1 
G39 DOMYOJI 1615 AD (Heights of Komatsuyama)

mk20336 (Red, Osaka) 5 banners, 17 blocks lost
Gileforn (Blue, Tokugawa) 2 banners, 12 blocks lost

That one is tough on Osaka forces. My units were constantly harassed by Tokugawa Arquebusiers and Bowmen, so I had retreat back (while bringing the Spearmen Samurai forward). At this moment in time a cavalry Charge hit my fragmented forces, killing one of Ashigaru and then focusing on my leader... only to be Ambushed, leader killed and Cavalry retreated. After this we had some back and forth with high point being "Turncoat" played by Andrey. It almost worked... In the end Shogun played by me settled the score, when I killed second leader tonight.

Great game and thanks to Andrey for flexibility in scheduling it!

Round 5
G26 The Ravine near Saigadake 1572 AD

(Red, Tokugawa) 4 banners 14 blocks lost
boredbeyondbelief (Blue, Takada) 5 banners 13 blocks lost

It's tough to cross the ravine. Both sides had trouble ordering their troops, and a pillow fight was fought in the ravine for the first half of the battle. Not surprisingly, Tokugawa's ambush (and the top of the ravine), gave Red the upper hand. Finally, cavalry samurai spearman appeared on Tokugawa's right flank and the line had to break to protect the leader. This allowed Takada's archers to get off a lucky shot and kill a samurai leader!  Takada's forces took advantage of Tokugawa's leaderless left flank and advanced around that side, eliminating archers in the process. With Takada's last unit of spearmen now holding the ravine, Tokugawa made a last effort to dislodge them by bringing a half-strength unit of arquebusiers to melee with them, but this unit was destroyed on the counter attack and Tokugawa had no choice but to retire from the field of battle.

It took us a while to finish this game - but I always love playing with Renaud!

Bloody arquebus and bow shooting bring losses to Osaka's AA and Tokugawa's Samurai Spearmen. After that Osaka infantry rushed like a wind forward to attack and destroyed shaken by the bullets Samurai spearmen unit. Its Leader retreated to Ashigaru Bowmen and withstand following bonus combat killing in revenge enemy's commander. Other Arquebus and Ashigaru Spearmen units fought in line Osaka's Ashigaru spearmen. At this moment Samurai Cavalry attacked and this attack won the day. Foot Samurai spearmen unit was destroyed and Ashigaru Spearmen with exposed left flank fled causing first fatal Lack of Honor roll in which Osaka's Arquebus from behind dispersed (3-1). Other Ashigaru's units from this onslaught tried to attack once more its opposite Arq and Spear units but without success.
