Meanwhile, one of the Pontic pike blocks flees from being charged in the flank by an elephant and is run down as it fails to outdistance the beast.
The sight of this panics the other pike block and horse archers who promptly depart the field.
The brave Pontic archers take a charge from the other Sassanid elephant and bring it down in combat but the Sassanid morale doesn't waiver.
The end is nigh as the brave archers get caught in the flank by the cavalry. They suffer a push back but are unable to do so and so they flee.
Likewise the Sarmatian cavalry are pushed back off table and so they flee.
A crushing defeat for the Pontics as the Sassanids take the field.
The Pontics hold on and the Sarmatian cavalry thunder into the flank of the Sassanid cataphracts. Surely that will swing the combat.....err not a chance. Safe with their 2+ save, and swinging their maces, the cataphracts mince through the open order infantry to their front whilst keeping the Sarmatians at bay.
