Yes Alex, I was interested to see three primarily foot armies in the first five (albeit with one of the Marians having unusually large numbers of mounted). I'm not convinced that the mounted armies are as powerful as we reckon; I think it's the most experienced players that tend to lead the list with whichever army they pick. :-) One advantage of mounted, though, is that one can make the game a fast and decisive one...
fast yes, decisive no :)
in my first game against Viking a huscarl unit stood up to 2 flank charges by lancers (3 cards) and 1 frontal charge by lancers (2 cards) (with some replays)
my deployment against the Marian did not take into account that he could have so many good mounted, and again the lancers did not perform very well
and in my third game the Seleucid almost single handed destroyed themselves : I killed 2 scythed chariots and 2 elephants , their rampages killed a unit light horse, a unit of spearmen, an elephant, a general (who had no troops left in his command) and another general, I think I didn't use any lance
