Day 2 - after a Great Chinese in Wallingford....
How Angus saw it from across the table:
Round 4 defending v Tim & Mick with Attila's Huns
This game we decided to get stuck in, and work off our frustration. We had put LH & Kn across the table, with the C-in-C in reserve in the center, a piece of Go in our left to put Bow & Ax, and the Kn.(X) sub on the far right with all of his Ax and Bow steaming across a Go hill on the flank. They had a big LH command with the Herul Kn.(F) and CV(S) on our right, the Ostrogoth Kn.(F) (in two ranks) and Bow (I) in the center, the Gepid Kn.(F) behind them, and Attila with 18 Wb and more LH(S) on our left.
We held on the left, waiting for the Web to come to our Kn.(F), and pushed on the right. Pushing Bow and Ax over the hill, and charging the Kn.(X) forward. As the Ostrogoth came close to our LH line they split into two separate lines of Kn.(F). For the next two turns Tim, with the Ostrogoths and the Huns on our right got shocking Pips. All the Ostrogoths could do was charge straight directly forward into a pocket of Pk, Reg Kn.(F) and all our LH(F), while the Huns Kn.(F) impetuously charged through their own LH at the Kn.(X), who were efficiently munching on everything in their path.
We won everything.
The Ostrogoth was surrounded and squashed (with 13 LH(F) in the center we were never short of an overlap) and the Kn.(X) smashed the Hunk command on the right. Hero of the day was the Sakae Kn.(F) general who helped destroy every element he touched: 2 CV(S), 1 LH(S), and 4 Bow(I). On the left the Wb(S) got in, and immediately made a hole in our line, but even there we turned a LH with Ps(O) in Go, pushed him back and destroyed it and 3 Wb(S) behind.
Nothing went right for Tim & Mick and our combat dice were good (bloody good in the case of the Sakae general).
31-1 to us.
