Well, most ancient battles are a more of deploy army, then release troops and hope they win it for you while you desperately send messengers to react to changes. So if you play each side intelligently with a basic battle plan, if should be fairly solitaire friendly.
I would imagine a few different tactics for each army, then roll a die for it. I would tailor the chart to the army some, but here is a basic.
Deployment

1. Strong Left

2. Strong Right

3. Strong Center

4. Balanced Line

5. Pincer
Tactics

1. General Advance

2. Break Flank on Strong Side

3. Raid with ranged, and threaten the Camp if possible.

4. Hold Strongest troops in reserve, advance.

5. Target weakest enemy troops

6. Target strongest enemy troops.

This was posted at BGG by a member there. Thought I would give it more exposure here.

[[ INTRODUCTION ]]

Based on shared research interests between these two communities,
the IEEE WMUTE 2012/DIGITEL 2012 conferences will be jointly held
in Takamatsu, Kagawa, Japan. Participants of both events will
be able to interact, discuss and exchange ideas which we hope can
stimulate more exciting ideas for future research. Therefore, this
joint conference aims to promote a new line of research and practice
that highlights both social and technological innovation in order
to support and amalgamate contemporary social learning theories.

This theme-based jointed conference will expose the results of
current research efforts and practices in these fields, as well
as identify future challenges and research priorities relevant
to both communities.

is unprecedented in Japanese history.
