The first seven cards drawn were all Stagonian including their C-in-C and two forward brigadiers. In fact there were a total of 9 Stagonian cards, two Alpian cards (one of which couldn't be used) and an Artillery card (for both sides).
Before that happened, the Stagonians had managed to deploy inside two "buildings" (actually representing the "soft cover" of a number of smaller houses, gardens and shops).
The troops are actually inside those buildings, not outside of them. Regiment Ardent took a shot at Alpia's Izzo Regiment but failed to cause a casualty marker . . . but the next card was a "Reload" card so they didn't lose anything by it.
On the Alpian side, the Cianti Regiment was able to deploy into line but that was it. However there is sufficient room for the Asti Spumonte Regiment to expand next to them.

While the Alpian's Light Gun can do two "actions" in a turn (such as limber and move), the Stagonian's Field Gun can only do one of four things on the Artillery Card:
