Battle Mid-Game

We are fighting out this battle using the Ager Proelii rules which were published in Miniature Wargames 345.  The rules were written for the Punic War, but they are working just fine for this battle.  Based on how this is playing, I think I will look into Hostile Realms which is based on the same mechanics but specifically a fantasy battle set.

Turn 2 - The elves made a quick advance sending cavalry skirmishers far to the front.  On the wings, the ranger skirmishers battled in the rocks and the town.  In response, the human cavalry advanced on the wings, but both infantry divisions failed their move rolls.

Turn 3 - Shaping up to be a cavalry fight.  The knights advanced, and the elven cavalry moved up to challenge with one unit getting a bit ahead of itself.

Turn 4 - The knights and elven cavlry clash, and the knights come out better, driving the elves back.  On the far wings, the evlen skirmishers are whittling away against the human rangers.

Turn 5 - The elven cavalry is giving way in the center, but on their left they are driving the human forces back having destroyed one cavalry unit and routed another.
