Post battle report - action in southern Lithuania.

Glenn Pasha lead a European Ottoman skirmish force (12 FSP, 37 Recce) northwards into Lithuanian territory. He saw a village, and thought "excellent, I will sleep there tonight". Little did he know that Prince Mattski was leading the Lithuanian Levy of Nobility (7 FSP, 6 Recce) to the same place with the same idea!

The tiny village of three houses was to be the centre of a vicious tussle. The Lithuanians quickly used their Lan infantry to seize one house. The Turks were in disarray, but after some time took a house with Segban. Both sides eagerly looked at the third house. The cavalry of both sides formed up on the flanks of the village, and tried to give an advantage to the infantry of their side. The fight whirled back and forth, and casualties mounted. At the end of the fourth turn it seemed that Prince Mattski had the town ready to take.

Suddenly calamity hit his Cossack Style cavalry on his left flank. A large group of Ottoman horse archers finally popped out from behind the wood on the Lithuanian left flank. They poured fire into the rear of the Cossacks. The Ottomans were lucky in their shooting, while the Cossacks were all hit by head shots - no saves! The Cossacks fled, and swept through some Reiters who joined in the flight.

The Ottomans had limited options, as so many of them had been disorganised or insubordinate from the start of the battle. Just then the massively delayed Deli cavalry arrived, stopping any chance of rallying for the Lithuanians. As day ended the Lithuanians had gained two of the three buildings, the Segban still had the third for the Ottomans. Ottoman casualties were less than 25%, the Lithuanians over 50%.

Both commanders had forgotten something important during the battle. Prince Mattski forgot his opportunity to get a reinforcement unit. Glenn Pasha forgot that his soldiers were extra motivated "the spirits were high".

Honours were even, a level draw.

Images to follow when I work it out!

Post battle report Glenn (ottoman) vs Nelly (Transylvanian) 5th round game
Somewhere in the border lands of Transylvania a column of Ottoman troops advanced. The Prince of Transylvania was not fulfilling all of his duties as a client prince of the Ottoman empire, a punic expedition was sent. This force was lead by Jusuf Pasha (army list book, Razkow garrison, 10 FSP, 12 Recce). At a nondescript field, dotted with groves, fields and an odd building they met a Transylvanian Combat Patrol (9 points, about 27 recce points). The commanders decided that three points on the battlefield were important and should be scouted by their troops.

This was a pell mell battle, with frantic action taking place. On the Ottoman left flank a dense wood barred the way of the left flank Janissary cemaats. They penetrated the wood to scout the central position, but played little part in the battle. Just to their right was Ottoman Sipahi and light horse units. These were hit hard by the Transylvanian lancers, and frankly smashed. The ottoman Aga died in this fight - presented with a real fight or a choice of strangulation with a silk rope he took the real fight, and a lance to the chest.

In the centre Transylvanian troops of a dragoon flavour held a corn field. Two separate (split) Cemaats of Janissaries advanced to the field and shot chunks out of the defenders. The Janissaries then charged to finish the foot soldiers off, and were simultaneously charged in the rear by the lancers mentioned above (household cavalry). The Transylvanian dragoons were massacred, but the Janissaries took huge casualties. Thrown back by the lancers only their promise to the Serdengetchi contract kept them in the field.

On the Ottoman right flank at two stages separate Transylvanian were mauled by Ottoman cavalry, the second one taken front and flank.

The advantage flipped back and forth, and both sides felt that all was lost more than once, but at the end both commanders received details of the three locations, and each side suffered more than 25% casualties, so honours were even.

Hi guys, I know we have holidays time but we have to speed up a little bit with our league. Dead line for all games is 12th of August :!: Then we will set up a date for a final game for top two players. There will be a nice trophy for our Champion :)

Cheers,
Mattski.

Hi guys, as I've said some time ago a dead line for all games is 12th of August. So Nelly,Rolland you have two weeks to play your game. If you will not be able to complete your game, the final game will be between Glenn and myself, according to results.

Cheers,
Mattski.

Yes it is a Final,so must be interesting ;) . It is a bit shame that all games couldn't be played but it is one of the things you can't help. We are all adults with our private life and wargaming is just our hobby, sometimes life writes for us different scenario and we have to put our hobby on site. But I'm glad that we have had at least a few very enjoyable games.

Cheers,
Mattski.
