I played two games at the Fairfield Bowling Club (Wargames section!) on Friday.
Both were my Communal Italians vs Alex’s Post Mongol Samurai (IV/59b) – Bd and Wb (Monks!) with two Cv and an Sp.
I left my crossbowmen in the box and gave my spearmen psiloi support to make them tougher against those monks.
In the first game I was the attacker and stupidly chose to walk around a steep hill instead of going over it. My Kn were isolated on one flank and my General had the door shut on him and was killed.
In the second game I was the defender. In the turn before hand to hand combat my War Wagon shot one of Alex’s monk elements (6-1). After a bit of to-ing and fro-ing I destroyed two more elements. Alex’s left flank was Bd, Cv(Gen), Sp, Cv. I had Hd, Hd, Kn(Gen) and Kn. One of my Hd recoiled his Bd, the other ‘stuck’ against his General, but my General killed the Sp and my Kn killed the Cv. I lost an Sp to a Wb quick kill somewhere in that fighting. In the next turn my General ‘closed the door’ on his, and his General was killed by a Horde!
