You will need a completely balanced army of lt & hvy infantry, cavalry, and skirmishers, and perhaps 4 peasants to act as a pin-cushion screen in front of your army. Then you will need good strategy. I play on Very Hard and lose the weaker/leading half of my army to win this one.

Also, line up with a refused right wing, in order to force the main comabt against Pyrrhus' elephants & heavies to occur in the stream in the middle of the field.
"Even on the attack, the spade is the equal of the rifle." Erwin Rommel
Caesar & "Marius' Mules" would agree.

Its not a good idea to sell your mixed but expirienced army to buy better but not expirienced troops. You should think about how is your army sopose to look at the last scenario from the right beggining. There are a lot of posts about how is other peoples army's look in the end.

My advice:

Mostly, combine 3-6(do not get over 6)cavalry units, around 6 heavy infantry, then buy some light infantry (I had 4 of them),
and of course around 4 javelinmen/archers (whatever you want the most, I had 2 archers and 2 javelinmen)
