      Vargas' movement is limited to 2.

The imperial vanguard outnumbers you, but they will hit you in waves, giving you time to recover in between attacks. Spread your air units out in front and on the flanks as much as possible, since they're the only unit that both horsemen and enemy griffins will shy away from attacking. Put pikemen in directly behind them, since the enemy charges will be led by horsemen. Hopefully, one of your characters can buy elves to take on enemy fliers - if not, just have your own fliers fight within a healer's range to minimize losses.

You will probably lose some pikemen to the fliers while they are fighting with the enemy horsemen. If you run out of them, just use horsemen instead. You'll probably trade one for one in terms of kills, but horsemen don't have much use against Kramer's pikes anyways.

When you approach the end of the bridge, the top mage will attack you. Pull your fliers back, since she has dark elves, and attack with your own ground units.

Once you reach the end, take on Kramer pikes with your own Lord(s). If you want to get the most experience, kill the bottom Mage first. She should fall to anything except pikemen. Even fliers could take her on, since elves don't do so well when they're on the defense. Against Kramer himself, use your knight(s) and follow up with your lord(s) if that wasn't enough to finish him off.

By the time Vargas and Zolm show up, you should already be well on your way to victory, so they should not be a threat. If you would like to kill them anyway, use horsemen to take down Zolm, monks or soldiers against Vargas' pikemen, and horsemen again to attack Vargas himself. Scott does well here because of his large attack bonuses. If you can spare it, have a mage or shaman hang back to provide supporting fire. Sleep is extremely effective. Keep in mind that this part is strictly optional.
