ACROPOLIS IN MAY 2024 another test

So this time I was to play Jean-Luc and face an early crown of Argagon so some knights better than my cavalry so what would happen was in the dice's hands ( or skulls or arrows )




I had ouscouted him but I knew it would be a difficult game. Terrain was open except for that damn piece of rough terrain right in the middle . Here you can see two almogavars tugs rushing in the terrain .




I did sent my infantry ( skutatoï ) towards his 2 big bloks of almughavars who are supported by some good knights



On the left you can see my normans, the varanguians, the tagmata end the kataphraktoi advancing cautiously



How to slow those guys would be a headache



The norman knights are moving to support the skutatoï



That central piece of terrain was really annoying me I would have to protect my flank



On the left hand the almughavars are coming towards my infantry



He means it


Impact was not bad now how would the skutatoï fare ..at impact integral shooter did give me a +2 as the almogavars are unprotected now I had to go on, still green vs white while I still had 2 ranks



Taking position and hoping to defeat the almogavars quickly but I need to protect my flank


The mounted bow were facing an overwhelming force but it's all I had to slow the down



The fight goes on but a bit too slowly


Meanwhile I would have to take risks to slow those guys down .



He maintained his knights to the back



Now the almogavars are near breaking and will break



At the same time a very good charge is being launched the themata will join and be smothered ..



The end position on my right flank . my prokoustatores are still alive and runned away . the kataphrakoï are going in next turn to tackle the military orders knights to the front but we stopped there



So here is the end of the game The almogavars will break but kill the themata who shot doing nothing, charged doing nothing but on 5 dice received 3 skulls and 2 wounds ..


The tagmata to the left will do well but the knights facing them will call payback time and with 3 dice ( after moves, deploying ranks and son on ), 2 greens and a white ..inflict 2 skulls and a wound breaking the tagmata


The knight TUG see above will incautiously advance behind the near breaking almogavars that will break. En result was the it lost a base after 3 test and was impacted by pursuing skutatoï . It could have killed one skutatoï on impact but it was also outflanked by the Varangian guard so odds were it would die . So I lost 2 TUGS, perhaps a third and the crown of Aragon had lost 3 tugs perhaps a fourth ..We need a bit more time but as it was a friendly game called for an end .


Next test ..;I must choose an army to try something different . Nellies ?
