KOH2 Seljuks vs Ayyubids

Next up, it's the Light Horse laden Seljuk Turks vs the Cavalry heavy Ayyubids. Defending General Amy would take command of the Seljuks & I the Ayyubids. The Seljuk plan was to have two flanks of three Light Horse, while the centre had the rest of the force. An Auxilia element was giving Camp Guard duty. The Ayyubid setup had a flank of Cavalry while the other would be Light Horse. The other troops would form the centre.

The Battlefield Setup.

_______________________________
Good PiPs & the Ayyubid Psiloi leg it for the Oasis.

_______________________________
Nice view from the Ayyubid lines.

_______________________________
Seljuk Light Horse advance on the flank checked by Ayyubid Cavalry.

_______________________________
On the other flank rival Light Horse look set to clash.

Positions just before the fighting starts.

_______________________________
Seljuk Light Horse have extra on this flank....

_______________________________
...plus advantage to the Seljuk Light Horse on the other.

_______________________________
Seljuk Bows take on the Ayyubid Psiloi.

_______________________________
The main lines advance slowly towards each other.

_______________________________
'Tis a strange game DBA' on one turn, death to 2 Ayyubid Light Horse...

_______________________________
...and death to 2 Seljuk Light Horse on the other flank.

_______________________________
On the next turn, the Ayyubid Cavalry press their advantage.

_______________________________
BAH! General Amy brings up the Khwarizmian Knights & some
Ayyubid Cavalry are outnumbered & destroyed.

_______________________________
3-2 to Amy's Seljuks!

_______________________________
Shocking! The Ayyubid right flank has collapsed....

_______________________________
The Seljuk Light Horse is in a bad position, could the Ayyubids take advantage?

_______________________________
All this action & the main lines still haven't clashed!

_______________________________
'Ger in there!' down goes the Seljuks Light Horse 3-3.

_______________________________
Alas my joy is short lived as the Seljuk Bows finally take care
of the Ayyubid Psiloi.......it's another BOO HOO!

_______________________________

Well done to General Amy, victory to the bold! Unfortunately for me it's another defeat, I'm going to have to get a grasp of these Light Horse tactics.....

Scores after one round....

Crusaders - 9 points
Seljuks - 9 points
Ayyubids - 3 points
Byzantines - 0 points

Hello. Awesome website. I am into Warmaster Ancients and am beginning with Field of Glory but have always found DBA fascinating. And your website is by far one of the most complete and best out there. A real joy!!!!

I was wondering if you guys would be willing to sell 2 starter armies (dark ages period)? I am willing to give it a try but can't paint and there are no decent armies out there in e-bay.

Will continue following your posts. Like I said, a real joy!!!!

Regards,

Jaime

Thanks for the nice comments!

Pheew.. Sorry mate, to be honest, we are 'Army Junkies' & 'Hoarders', we don't like to part with any of our armies. but I'll have a look through what we've got.. I can't promise anything though! ;o)

All the Best
