Some good advice to Brent there, he may delve into the garage again.......
We should have more battles analysed by the 'experts', makes our games even more interesting.

Brent's original plan was sound, to stand on the defensive and have his longbows shoot up my smaller army as it attacked. Unfortunately his archers didn't protect their bowstrings from the abysmal Welsh drizzle. My mixed units used water-resistant bamboo fibre strings and outshot his more numerous archers.
His only mistake was not covering my pathetic cavalry on my extreme right, they got behind his light horse and prevented them evading when charged by my elephants.
The massed charge of elite elephants, elite guardsmen and enraged mixed units simply overwhelmed his line

Ahh, they are longbow on the hill.
Agreed you would expect them to do enough to hold on their pedestal until the flanks caved in under the weight of Welsh dross.

Like any army, you have to play them enough times to know when to hold'em, know when to fold'em, Know when to walk away and know when to run.

Must break out the Thracians again, I don't think any of the MF actually won a combat in their abysmal introduction to ADG.

Laser cut ADLG 25mm measuring sticks showed up. 3mm MDF.

Shape means you have 1, 2, 3, and 4 distances with the sides. (6, 12, 18 and 24cm). Two sticks makes it easy to ensure you're not double moving within 4 of the enemy, can measure up to 8 for artillery or command range, can measure deployment zone easily and so on.

$5 for two. Let me know if you want a set.

Yes please. I’ll take two sets (one for Bryan Fowler who had his heart valve replacement this week and is in recovery). Please give my sets to Brian/Andre and I will arrange to collect from them. Either give me your bank account or get the cash off them and I’ll see them right, honest Gov.

My Republican Romans make their debut, defeating Matt's Cathaginians, and Kerry's Persians defeat Andre's Palmyrans.

Matt plays Andre today, with a new French Ordnance Army painted in 3 days!
Some over cautious play by the French sees a draw with mutual destruction.

Andre's Palmyrans beat Mike's Seleucids today.

Next week it's an extended civil war as my Republican Romans restore a proper system of government by defeating Brian's Late Imperial Romans in the morning, and Brent's Early Imperial Romans in the afternoon.

Maybe we should get the sequence right,you remove the EIR, then the LIR.............. :D
well try anyway....... :D :D
If you remove the LIR first then Brent loses automatically as he doesn't exist. :oops:

My Republican Romans saw off the Imperial threat today, death to Tyrants! Tyrants being Brian and Brent. I think 22-13, and 21-11 respectively.
