Stratagems: Scouting 5AP

The tactic is straightforward. Use the massed archers to disrupt enemy, then charge with BdF to kill it.

BdF should be deployed in column between the three archer formations and on the flanks. Keep the IBwO in the middle with the lower pip die as a bait, and protect its flanks with the other corps. Psiloi should cover gaps, provide overlaps, and if superior help the BdF in combat.
