DBMM Turgesh vs T'Ang

Played Dbmm tonight at Stephen's using Turgesh version of Central Asian Turkish with brilliant general Su Lu against T'Ang Chinese with BwX. A really excellent game that went down to wire (I lost again of course !). Strong winds blowing into Chinese faces helped as it reduced bow range and artillery effect. I used my Tibetans as allied command for first time and they done quite well. I used flank attack with a command of 6 LhS plus a LhS general, which unfortunately arrived on turn 2 before my advancing wing could get to grips with enemy. They caused T'Ang some problems but were overwhelmed. A fair old slog (as Barker intended) across battlefield ensued with T'Ang eventually getting the better of exchanges. A very enjoyable game.
iPhone pics again as mental block re camera continues !!
