In this thread, post your best battle of all time, and the strategy you used to get that result. I'm going to brag a bit, and post one that nobody will beat for a long, long time.

I cast Fog spells in front of my army, about 8 hexes away. Then I use several Muds to slow the enemy down, and jam them up right in front of my army. Missile attacks are used on the stragglers, but mostly, I concentrate multiple Pyro spells on the heaviest stacks that are jammed up in the Mud.

I got 960 mil in a battle from goblins some time ago (actual the last battle with them). My tactic was ti cast fog on me and wait them to come into the mist and disapier in front of my armies.

Defended your city against a Centaur army. You gained a total of 7,783,933 experience. Experience bonus 115%
Your City Morale increased by 0.5!
Your win-loss increased by 1.1

Your spoils are 814.9 armor, 142.8 weapon, 349.9 bow.
You recovered 1 Healing, 1 Vigor, 11 Small +1, 11 Leather +1, 1 Healing, 1 Vigor, 1 Vigor, 1 Healing, 1 Vigor, 8 Leather +1, 1 Vigor, 1 Healing, 1 Vigor, 1 Healing, 1 Vigor, 1 Cure, 1 Healing, 1 Vigor, 9 Leather +1, 1 Cure, 1 Vigor, 8 Lt Cross Bow +1, 1 Vigor, 1 Vigor, 1 Vigor, 1 Vigor, 1 Healing, 1 Vigor, 1 Vigor, 1 Cure, 1 Vigor, 10 Lt Cross Bow +1, 1 Vigor, 1 Cure, 1 Vigor, 1 Cure, 1 Vigor.

Not impressive for the gains but for it's brevity.
Layed in a barrier (with a gap) of fog, filled the gap with mud, postioned my troops in the fog and they moved right in. One charge attack from each of my units and one follow up from about half of them and this battle was over at turn 7. By the time I got all my troops healed it was turn 14. Only used 2 pyros and only because I had already cast them, they were pretty much ineffective.

During the Iran/Iraq war, the outnumbered Iraqis reshaped the landscape in front of their lines. On the desert floor, they constructed huge V shaped sand berms that were shaped in such a way that the attacking infantry tended to bunch together into narrowing flat terrain. Once the brave Persian soldies flooded into the smaller, constricting flat terrain, the concealed Iraqis opened up. Small arms, artillery, minefields and poison gas. It must have been horrific.

Back to reality. I hold no simular pity for those Troll bastards when they attack my troops. Or orcs, or goblins. But there are no races I really hate. That's sad. Perhaps a race that would really cause mucho grief and distruction could be a real hated group.

I'm guessing Orcs with a Rage Lord would do the trick.

The same old formula: Fog and haste the heck out of the horses, brute force them when they move in and encircle when they retreat. Now let's see if I can find that damnable dead zone.

This one was a little different. I started in a corner that was surrounded by hills and trees. Was unable to fog as usual and since my formation was scrambled I had to move out on to the plain inorder to get my units in range of my haste spells. By the time I was set up they had surrounded me and I was forced to fight my way out in 4 directions in order to make paths for my encircling troops. It cost me 960 HP of healing to get my units back up to full strength at EOB.

I haven't had that many battles yet and have not used 'fog' much at all BUT I shall. I have used mud with some success. Seems that the Spells are the way to totally wipe out the enemy which I haven't done yet. I tend to lead the attackers into my raised defenses by backing up with my light infantry, entrench them interlocked with heavy infantry, absorb attacks, concentrate fire, partially encircle and eliminate one unit after the other. It's beautiful to eliminate an entire centaur infantry unit in one barrage! I will try your tactics of using mud behind them and maybe cavalry so that I too may totally annihilate my attackers. My numbers aren't very impressive but they are the best I have to offer to date. The morale numbers improve my morale (and are sorely needed since I have mismanaged my city).
