And I swear to defend
And we'll fight to the end
And I swear that I'll never be taken alive
And I know that we'll stand
And we'll fight for our land
And I swear that my bairns will be born free

I know Bay of Pearls is a tough scenario but try again.

You did well with the Mermen but if you want to win you need to win the land war. Here is a few suggestions, I hope I don't offend you. Use Day/Night more to your advantage retreat to saftey or at least a defensive line at night. Don't expose your mages unless it is likely to be safe after the fighting is done. Use village healing. You left a knight exposed to combat when he was clearly in danger. Use the knights sword attack when fighting melee strong opponants like trolls, the retaliation at 10 pts during daytime is brutal.

Recruit more tough units (fighters/archers) and only a few mages/shamen for support. I could come up with more but this should get you through. BTW watching 2 mages defend the beach so Konrad could make a dash accross to recruit a 2nd army was priceless.

I agree, mages are great. But they are somewhat situation specific. They are most useful fighting enemies defending terrain with a high defense value(elves in the forest, elusivefoot in villiages, dwarves in mts etc) because of their magic attack or high resistance enemies like undead.

In BoP you are fighting mostly Trolls, Orc(s) (ish Archers) or Wolf Riders in the plains so more muscle is more cost effective.
