My brand new Inca army has fought its first battle against a dreaded foe: Aztecs
You can read here the battle report:

Nice report and photos. Too bad the wrong army got sacrificed to the Inca Gods.

Cheers,

Interesting, but it used so many game-specific terms, I wasn't really sure what it meant. Pretty pictures though.

Must have been some bad Incan rolling. Looked like one of the combats was against a flanked Aztec skirmisher element and it would not even go down!

Hi Dale, FO means Fixed Obstacles. I used a palisade to try to resist the charge by the fiercer enemy troops.
The Aztec military order troops in DBMM are classed as RBdF (regular blades fast), while the lesser warriors are RAxI (regular Auxilia Inferior).
The Incas are almost all line troops (RAxO . Regular auxilia ordinary)) and skirmishers (IPsO – Irregular Psiloi ordinary), with the few nobles being RAxS (regular auxilia superior).
Hope this can help.
Rgds

Hmm,

Didn't the Aztecs traditionally missed many opportunities to kill because they were concentrating more on ways to incapacitate and capture live enemy, for sacrifice, to increase their own individual prestige?

While the Incas had no problems against killing on the spot?
