My Lusitanians were facing Klay's Early Carthaginians. Sertorius proved his worth in the early game with a +2 to my initiative roll. I won initiative and chose Hilly terrain as it suits my Medium and Light Foot army. Most of the terrain landed on Klay's side, forcing him into an unorthodox deployment. His chariots formed on his left wing as that was the only large clearing. His center was composed of Medium Foot in the brush and Heavy Foot deployed in a narrow clearing.
It was to prove an act of genius as my skirmishers somehow stood firm for 2 full turns of melee against heavy foot, allowing my main line to come up and hit the Carthaginians before they cleared the rough terrain. That meant the Sacred Band was stuck in the rear.
