EMPIRE BUILDERS ANCIENTS: Field of Glory II Campaign -Completed

We're in the thick of the mid-game scrum. @Wellsonian has the turn but his plate is pretty full lately. I am prepared to offer him very generous terms for surrendering the field acknowledging White munificence . . . ;)
@Wellsonian -- don't fall for it -- I've been at the receiving end of White "munificence" in many a battle... :ROFLMAO:
 
YELLOW Empire defeats the BLUE counter-attack into CARTHAGE with a 55% - 30% = +25% Major Victory.
It was a close Roman vs Roman fight -- well-played @mTk , I got lucky with a brace of late game rallies that swung the points quite a bit in my favour -- until then it was neck on neck.

'Tis done. @Badger73 (Bosporan) defeats @Wellsonian (Sarmatian) 62-48 (15%)
Rising from his pallet upon overcoming the plague, @Wellsonian was unable to overcome Bosporan intransigence as White defenders inflict over 60% casualties upon the invaders. The Greens are repulsed.

Ummm, 62-48 = 14, just sayin'
 
GREEN attack into BOSPORUS is beaten back with a Minor Defeat (-14%)

So all we have outstanding now is the WHITE attack into ASIA -- @Wellsonian @Nathangun -- how's that going? :)

Okay -- gird your loins for the final Round 10 for a last chance to lead your Empire to glory and imperial dominance!

BLUE Empire lost its capital last turn, so can't attack this turn, only action it can do is re-establish a new Capital in one of its provinces and defend as per normal.
With no Gold income this turn, the BLUE fleet is also disbanded.

Treasuries:
WHITE: 3 Gold
YELLOW: 3 Gold
RED: 2 Gold
GREEN: 2 Gold
BLUE: 0 Gold

Sequence of orders for this round:
1. YELLOW (+35%)
2. RED (+32%)
3. GREEN (+27%)
4. WHITE (+25%)
5. BLUE (no attacks)

I go first: YELLOW attacks SYRIA and BABYLONIA, and maintain the fleet in eastern Med (using up all my 3 Gold)

@HOA_KSOP and @kronenblatt -- you're up next with orders.
