New Scenario: Bagradas

Just added a precursor to the better known Battle of Zama to the Ancients Scenario page. Bagradas is another one that will let me use the Republican Romans. It provides an interesting counterpoint to Zama, with slightly different troop types on the Carthaginian side. In this earlier battle, it is the Roman cavalry that are in trouble. Also, and unlike Scipio, Regulus had no plan for dealing with the elephants apart from relying on the staying power of the legions. Scipio learned from this.
