Here we are all set for round 2. My caliphates vs. Abe's Teutonics.
Lots o' really hard knights and infantry. Scenario was to claim and hold objectives.
Battle Lines set. As you can see I easily outnumber Abe's Army 2 to 1.
Matt J2 is looking on...
|Sadly, any semblance of trying to take turn by turn photos disappeared in a dice rolling haze. Here I have claimed the objective on my side and managing to hold the charge of the crusading knights. I am set up nicely for a flank, heh, heh|
|Meanwhile, we have a nice mess on the other flank with my attempt to deal with the Teutonics. I am very afraid of this unit. Abe's screening cav has managed to block him up a bit too.|
|Meanwhile part 2... Action on the far flank. My light cav move to challenge (and later sieze) Abe's objective.|
|Checkmate... I flank and (will) break the Teutonics. I will end catching and destroying them, effectively ending the game. Got very lucky on this one... but I'll take it.|
|Lines advancing. I am taking a freaking pounding by the 3 ballista...|
|I do manage to get around the side to hopefully cause some trouble on the|
ballista conga line
|Lines about to close. My javelin and arrow fire is wholly ineffective vs. the well|
armored romans (Light armor and large shield). My line is basically naked...
|Another view of the Roman Death that is coming my way.|
|Ok, I manage to hold vs. the charge for a round and even see off the Barbarians|
on the flank. If only my line can hold and I can turn the flank.... If only...
