Again facing the Evil Empire(tm) of Jamie's Romans (Byzantines). It had been ages since I've managed a game with Jamie so I was pretty stoked to hang out and throw down with Impetvs. I had more men painted up so we could run a 400 point match up of two commands each.
I had 5 Medium Cav of Bulgar Nobles, 5 Light Cav (with Comp B) of Bulgars and their Pecheneg allies, 2 Bulgar Skirmishers (with Short B ) and 3 Slavic Light Infantry (with Javelins). Average command and 2 Poor Generals.
Jamie had 3 Heavy Cav Sarmatians (Impetuous), 4 Heavy Infantry (with Pilum), 1 Medium Cav, 1 Light Cav, 2 Skirmishers (with slings), 2 Skirmishers (with javelins), a Ballista type thingy. (Close to this eh Jamie?)
|Slavic light infantry guarding the baggage train|
|Pecheneg light cavalry ready to break out into the open|
|Bulgars on the right|
|Byzantine General hovering close to camp, later we would drink from his skull|
|Sarmatians hiding behind a shrubbery|
|Sarmatians in the open, making me worry...|
|First activation, four disrupted cavalry stands from double moving|
|This Sarmatian charges my skirmishers and smashes one to pieces|
|Those disrupted Bulgar Nobles are about to get charged|
|On my far left, some cheeky Byzantine Medium Cavalry is making a run for the baggage|
|Slavic light infantry lurking in a wood|
|Bulgar Nobles smash into the Sarmatians on the right.|
|Another group of Bulgar Medium Cavalry getting attacked|
Shortly after this I lost another CM so my right hand command broke, breaking my army.
Very fun game, it was only frustrating because I was relearning mistakes that have already made! It was a while ago, but there you are. It wasn't the dice, just those couple mistakes.
