Camp Cromwell 01/12/08

Steve of Pergumum v. Jim of Seleucia.

Camp Cromwell Rules. We used the alternate Command Group deployment system to deploy. Both sides tried to weight their left. Steve's left did win, but lost a couple of units in doing so & it took too long to exploit his advantage. In the centre the imitation Romans quickly destroyed the Seleucid peltasts but were then themselves beaten by the Seleucid 2nd line. On the Seleucid left the Capadocian cavalry pinned the cataphracts while the Greek cavalry swept away the light cavalry and wheeled into the cataphract flank. In pursuing the routed cataphacts the Capodicians ran into the Guard cavalry and beat that too. This caused the Pergumenes to fail Army Morale.

The battle ran pretty well despite not using them for long enough to forget a few things. There are still a few loose ends to tidy up & Steve made some suggestions I'll think about.
