Some nice blue vein I reckon :-)

Look forward to your next round of updates on the comp. I am thinking we (Nelson) should have a wee comp as well.

Thursday 17th, one 15mm AdlG and one 25mm DBA played.

Andre & Brent were talking about having an 15mm AdlG 'Wall of Crap' gaming event prior to Thursday evening, I was told, but Andre sprang a surprise on Brent and turned up with his very competitive Palmyran army........
Undaunted Brent deployed is Andalusian Arab wall of crap, all 36 units with Included Generals, against the Palmyrans 22 (I think) units. I did not see much of the game but did note that both armies were heavily engaged and that the Mediocre 'crap' Andalusians were falling like flies or evading off the table. Win to the Palmyrans 16-36.
With a bit more practise the Andalusian horde could well be a dangerous beast.
Well done Andre. I would advise that those playing Andre in future get his Army List in writing before the game.

On a smaller size table with larger size figures Mike & I play 25mm DBA,( 12 units aside).
Mike's Seleucids with two Elephants, Scythed Chariot included set about beating up my Mid Imperial Romans. I managed to get a Psiloi in front of one of the Elephants but ended up being outflanked on my right wing, Mike, of course, took advantage and was knocking holes in my line and had his Scythed Chariot chasing my General around. The last round of the game saw Mike, with two lost elements,set-up to take out my General with his Scythed Chariot, as the General was backed up and could not flee, a Legionary with his Knight General and another Legionary element with an Elephant, giving him a comfortable win as I had three losses at this stage.
Well the Roman Gods were with me during the combat phase, my Legionary unit drew with the Knight General and as all DBA players will know, even combat factors destroys a knight. My General meanwhile survived the combat against the Scythed Chariot by destroying it, but I lost a Legionary to the elephant so a Draw, mutual destruction 4-4

My Palmyrans have 1 game and lost 4. If this makes them "a very competitive army" I hate to think what "a real dog" of an army would be like.

Aaron and I had a game today. Anglo Irish(me) vs Tamil Indian(aaron). I very kindly set up my longbow in front of a hill effectively negating my own shooting.

After some manoeuvring our lines finally clashed and mayhem ensued. To say the Tamils blew a hole in my line was an understatement. The clock saved my ass.

Final result. DRAW. Aaron lost about half his points while i was 5 or 6 off breaking.

My mediocre heavy spearmen stood up to the Romans a longer than I expected. The problem was the non-mediocre LH on one flank couldn't handle the Cataphracts and got pushed off the table. On the other flank the heavy foot were tied up fighting the Romans while the LH got shot to pieces

An army of 12 light horse (2 Of whom are included generals) and 14 light foot is always going to struggle against a solid army. His light horse either died to shooting or fled off table. His light foot achieved little before the main lines clashed and then were just spectators until they were pursued into and destroyed. Never have more than 1 line of light foot.
