DBMM Maurikian Byzantine vs Ummayyad

Played another 1.1 (Jan 1st draft) vs Stephen today
Another excellent game with decent numbers of Spear on table for first time in long time. Viable proposition now vs CvS. Byz CvS/O dbes are still very hard to use successfully.
Re-worded sponno rules took a bit of reading/working out but otherwise 1.1 games running smoothly for us.
Stephen proposed that Mtd S get a +1 on equals in own bound vs non-S Foot, for balance.
Put proposal on Yahoo-group and await to see if viable or not ?

Dbmm v1.0 Minoan vs Neo Assyrian

400 pt Dbmm game using v1.0 (practice for Cork) using Minoans again vs Stephens Neo Assyrians

Good game but Minoans suffered total collapse.

Both sides lost a Chariot SG

Using single elements to block marches in v1.0 really stuck out as awful.

KnS certainly more potent in 1.0
