|Camels manoeuvre on my left, cunningly avoiding real troops... the CinC charges off in the centre, and the Horde huddle in the face of the advancing LMI Elephant and Blade juggernaut.
|On my right.. the river boats, and a very badly deployed ally.. watch those woods!
|The Flank march arrives.. I had to keep pressing Jon with the camels who were very vulnerable to his much superior mounted. 'Ghost Riders' as the Rajput nobles are still awaiting paint.
|My valiant CinC elephant retires, leaving the Psiloi to face the music!
|Cunning manoeuvring on my right, the river boats advance carrying their lethal cargo of Blades.
|And the ambush is sprung! 4 elephants emerge from the trees..
|Flank marching Knights break up, I had a dearth of PIPS on this wing. The camels and the CinC command are not far off breaking.
It really came down to the wire... if a couple of my combats hadn't come off, I was toast next bound. Classic moments were as my elephant general smacked the opposing swordsmen up, his neighbouring elephant killed my skirmishing javelinmen – both elephants advanced past each other, and in the next bound I got to rear end his elephant at 6-3 in my favour (which sadly...for me.. didn’t come off...) the rest of the game saw his elephant chasing my general backwards across the table to his base-line... great stuff, cracking game, and a load of fun.
