Battle Tactic: Bait and Bombard

Use the mass of heavy troops to attract and pin the main enemy attack, while your javelin units hover around making hit and run fire attacks on the enemy engaged with the heavy legions. Your javlin troops are fast and neeed not cower behind the legions, only to be killed by an enemy fast and numerous enough to outflank the heavies to get at the javelin troops. Having them hover on the enemy flanks by "crossing the T" described below, is especially effective.
