Heroic Combat - Mangu vs. Mirish!

"Why so glum, my friend?" asked the Mirish General Pereira.
The Mirish Hero, Albades did not reply  but rode on in silence.
Pereira just smiled and said "Do not worry, your time will come. How you behave then is all that will matter."
*****************************************
This battle is between the invading army of Mirish versus the defending Mangu. The Mangu were beaten last year but defeated. Mirish has decided to invade the Mangu homeland and hopefully bring the war to an end.
The Mangu planned to double envelope their enemy and as the wings sped forward their Caster fired off a blast spell at the Mirish front line, hitting one of the elephants. Thanks to the morale given from the Crystal Light of Yakub the elephant continued onward. We now let the pictures tell the story.











The heroic Comb at could have went either way and better lucky then good as the Mirish Hero managed to win. Mirish had a risky plan, attacking the horse archers with the CinC units. The extra-heavy armor of the Cataphracts saved the day.
As to be expected the Mangu lost zero units in the battle, a combination of the fleet light cavalry and the heavy casualties taken on the Mirish side.
The upside is the Langu leader was captured and will not count towards the major Morale check.

  1. Gotta love heroic combat. This battle looks more like the type of slugfest that I experience. Nice counters too, the look vaguely familiar.

  2. Wow, you're playing in luck there, Ed! :) Great report and a great victory. The Mangu army is demoralised and loses 1 morale, but they have replaced their leader with an equally good one for next season. The war will continue.
