Little Battles 21
« on: January 24, 2021, 05:47:13 PM »
Oh no - another year and another series of battle reports beam their way through space.

Typically it is Greeks versus Persians to start the year off.

More detailed report on my website for those with interest or too much time on their hands (at the moment).

A little little battle this time. It did remind me of fighting in the late 1970s when my Romans struggled in open terrain against opponents with lots of mounted archers.

An opportunity for my recently expanded Commagene to test themselves against some unsuspecting Greeks.

Short report attached. Longer one on my website for those with time on their hands.

With bad weather being forecast, it was another opportunity to take over the dining room table.

This time a more powerful Greek alliance (Thebes and Thessaly) took on my Herodian Jewish army in its first outing since achieving (hopefully) its final configuration.

For those who think it is too cold for mowing the lawn, a more detailed report is available on my website.

Excellent account and really well presented. Nice to see Herodians doing well - one of my favourite armies  :)

Cheers
Mick

Yes the Herodians did a lot better than expected. How much of that may be down to the bad tactics by the Theban Boiotarchos is a point to consider, although a lot of Herod's troops have proved reasonably reliable in earlier battles.
