DDBA Mongols vs Teutons/Poles Part1

Oh dear, we've been neglecting this site in favour of DBA with guns on our other blog. Not to worry DBA purists, here's a clash between the Mongols & an alliance of Teutonic Knights with the Poles. Inspiration for this one due to this lovely piccy from Tim Newarks book 'Barbarians'.


We did plan on doing a mighty BBDBA East versus West clash between the Mongols & Teutons/Poles/Germans, but the battle line for the Western forces was just 'too big' for the table. Ah, maybe one for the future.
The Mongols have never performed very well in our previous games. Looking at this one, I can see the Teuton/Polish Knights steamrolling the Mongol Light Horse. To give the Mongols a slight edge, we extended the Command Radius for them & added 4 elements of Spears. These would be dismounted Mongols & local vassels, whose only function would to sit on the hill & draw in the opposition. The Teutons are Amy's favourite army, so she would command them. Jack took the Poles.... So yours truly had the Mongols.

Woa! Plan of attacks.
The Mongol plan. Try & entice the Knights into the centre between the Marsh & Hill. Mongol Light Horse, would then encircle them & then the slaughter would begin.....

The Light Horse race for the flanks.
Amy's Turcopoles would try & plug the gap.
In the centre the Mongols retire.
