With the arrival of more plastic figures I am being tempted by this (new) period. The lack of suitable Turkish troops may, however, hold me back.
Saturday 6th October 2018 - Gt.Houghton
4 games of DBA v3.0:
(1) 2.22 Arabo-Aramaen v 2.19a Early Seleucid - the terrain fell in my favour - 1:4 win.
(2) 3.25b Arab Conquest v 3.29 Thematic Byzantine - I tried to hide my Blades on the hills but I needn't have feared the enemy cavalry - my bad - 4:0 loss.
(3) 4.44 Mamluke Egyptian v 4.17 Later Crusdader - poor melee dice (3 ones in a row for 3 kills) - 4:0 loss.
(4) 2.15 Alexandrian Imperial v 2.3a Classical Indian - I managed to restrict the movement of Ian's forces - 1:5 win.
One game of DBN - Prussians v Spanish - lucky dice on my part - 1:5 win.

"1871" Battle of Beaumont (Franco-Prussian War)
DBM - Thracians v Scythians - on paper this was an even match-up but my poor deployment resulted in a 7:3 defeat. The C-in-C's command had to take on two enemy forces, plus our flank march took ages to arrive. Not a good day.

ACW Ironclads (John Smith)
I didn't attend this meeting and nobody has reported back to me. Hopefully further details will arrive with the pidgeon post.
