This truly was an epic struggle and had everything you could ask for in a battle. Elephants, artillery, huge infantry lines, a ton of cav charges...and some crispy pigs.
Honestly I was reluctant to post this mainly because it showcases a disaster in my judgement and my entire army is destroyed half-way through the battle. Luckily Johndisp had all his infantry and archers in near mint condition and despite Sparty's and Dio's really heroic effort, they're forces were just too small and tired to be able to finish the comeback.
A few notable events in this battle:
I once again rely on Elephants (and plenty of them)to do most of my heavy killing.
Dio's pigs rout and fool me into believing they're gone...a small hint...they're not.
My infantry force is crushed so fast that you might miss it if your not paying attention.
Johndisp's Desert cav routs and rallies many times before finally running out of gas (and men)
Peasants hold their own against tired urbans and a half-hearted cav charge!
No breaks in the action! Ths fight is a desperate struggle throughout!
