Create a Want Tell us what you're looking for and once a match is found, we'll inform you by e-mail. The Gallic host comprised both horse and chariots in limited numbers. Instead the bulk of the army comprised warriors on foot 4Wb who were supported by a number of Gaesati 3Wb. After trekking long distances the Gauls found their enemy in the wilds of Asia Minor in a land famous for its horses, its fruit orchards and its worship of the mother goddess Ma, or so the histories would tell us.
The armies deployed, the Gauls on an open plain the Kappadokians restricted somewhat by steep and rocky hills.

An initial advance along a road by over zealous Kappadokian cavalry against the Gallic right inspired a dramatic counter by the Gauls. The Gaesati moved swiftly towards the enemy horse while Celtic chariots and horse swarmed forward on the flanks of the Celtic mercenaries. The Kappadokian horse seemed likely to be overwhelmed. Yet the gods of war turned and soon the Gauls were fighting for their own survival many cut down. Yet here the fickle gods intervened again, the remaining Celtic horse on the right now throwing back attackers repeatedly despite being outnumbered three to one.
Below, the Gallic horse on the right hotly engaged by overwhelming numbers. The battle is about to involve more troops as the centres are progressively engaged. As the main battle lines clashed the Kappadokian general at the head of lancers pressed the Celtic chariots opposite opening eventually a hole in the Gallic line. Yet the determined Celtic charioteers, under the Gallic commander, harried their advance at every turn darting forward and back their warriors fighting with great expertise from their chariots. Each side of the now fully engaged commanders, the armies were progressively to be engaged in deadly combat.
Slowly in a series of progressive combats the Gallic foot, beating their shields with swords and spears, moved forward. The melee was both general and confusing. But slowly the Gallic heavy infantry were gaining the advantage. Desperately seeking a breakthrough a further body of by Kappadokian lancers, riding partly armoured horses, crashed into another body of naked Gaesati. Determined to stand these mercenaries from Transalpine Gaul braced for the charge.
When it came the Gaesati repulsed their attackers. Reforming the Kappadokian lancers charged again. Now broken up their formation disordered the Galatians cut them down without quarter. Above, the general situation in the final moments of the battle.
Using De Bellis Antiquitatis, with the odd diversion…
Below, the Gaesati repulse the enemy lancers. The loss of the lancers was too great and demoralised from heavy losses the Kappadokians broke, their warriors fleeing for the hills. As they broke the Gallic warriors themselves exhausted focus on looting the dead and dying. The Gaesati, heroes of the battle, could be seen gathering Kappadokian heads to impale on stakes in celebration of their victory. Some Kappadokian sources may well report that the Gauls only achieved a narrow victory. However, undisputed by all, was it had been an extremely enjoyable encounter and a fine game using two well presented armies.
For the Gauls it was a great introduction to the DBA battlefield. The last couple of weeks has seen some progress on painting, basing and rebasing stands for DBA. As Friday was designated as a DBA evening it seemed fitting to give the rebased Indonesians an outing. The armies recruited by the players were almost identical, though a degree of variety is possible despite using the same base list.
Both consisted of a core of warriors 4Wb which was supported by archers 3Bw and skirmishing troops including troops armed with blowpipes Ps.
Most importantly both armies fielded a number of elephants. However, lacking the resources of Malacca, and abhorring the slow and dangerous modern artillery arm in the field, the Sultan of Samudera opted for a number of light cavalry. In all each army would field some elephants and 10, to 11, infantry along with artillery or cavalry.

The Sultan of Malacca had dispatched a sizeable army to Sumatra under one of his trusted generals Muda Perdana who advanced into the Samudera Pasai Sultanate with the coast to his flank. Having control of the sea he could be assured of a supplies being provided by the large Malaccan fleet. The Sultan of Samudera determined to block his advance on his capital of Pasai and selected an open plain bounded by woods and steep hills near the coast to oppose the invader. Perdana positioned his artillery park opposite the enemies centre where he could soon bring the enemy, including his elephants, under bombardment.
He hoped that this would either force the enemy to advance or disrupt them as they tried complex manouvres to reposition their centre. Alas, the Sultan of Samudera failed to understand the risk imposed to his centre, or opted to ignore it. Instead, he advanced rapidly on his left with archers and reinforced this attack with his light cavalry who conducted a series of marches to the left from his extreme right.
Above, the forces of Malacca on the left and those of Samudera Pasai Sultanate on the right. A very dangerous move!
