DBMM 400pt Galatian vs Buyid

400 Dbmm game today using a scratched together Galatian (post 227bc) vs Stephen Buyids

With Agg 1 I defended and in later Galatian period there is rather paltry selection of terrain (Hills and RFs mainly).

Interesting game with my massed (64 elements) of WbO advancing in middle as Stephen moved to my flanks (he had an outflanking Bedouin LH Cmd that failed to appear).

Low Pips with my Wb saw the bulk of the Cmd proceed inpetuously to enemy table edge and sit there ! as no opponnents and no Pips to turn them.

Heavier Buyid CvS overcame my right flank Cv/Lch Cmd whereas on other flank my identical Mtd cmd eventually broke the oppossing Buyids (loss of BwO hurt).

Several rules issues (first in awhile) ref EMLTUs Marching into Contact and Flee, but thats what practice games are for......................

DBMM League game 1

Played Dbmm Celtic League game vs John Brittain

Used my Polybian Romans vs his Ancient British

Hugely fun game as always.
Came out on top 18-7 but it was close all the way and even so I could have won 23-2 but on the very last die roll of the game my CIC decided to die causing his Cmd to break and giving John 7 pts instead of 2 !

Strangely not many QKs by either side for a lot of turns as both impotent in own bounds. Once he had 2 Cmds go Disheartened things swung my way as the extra -1 took effect.

Wonder who/what I will face next ?
