Field Of Glory Ancients - Turgesh versus T'Ang Chinese

Game of FOGA at Stephens using a Central Asian Turk (Khazar) force against his T'Ang Chinese.
A very tense game with lots of maneuver including a successful flank march by two Turk Cavalry units.
Only downside being they arrived on turn two sort of giving the game away a tad.
We both put down a lot of terrain as both armies fielded almost half foot units.
This made for a cagey affair especially with my flank attack.
T'Ang have a lot of bow armed types whereas I mostly had Lances or other melee weapons.
Stephens foot had some tremendous rolls when charged by a couple of my mounted units saving him from several Cohesion tests and Death rolls.
Having an inspired General is a big bonus to Cohesion.

We failed to finish game as a lot Salute stories and acquisitions inspected.
But when we concluded my army was suffering a lot of Disruptions and several Fragmented/Routed troops so things were certainly looking favourable for the T'Ang.

Nice rules that suit a minimum preparation type game (one just points up an army and brings it).

Phone pics so bit fuzzy
