I know this is an old post, but in case you still haven’t figured it out you need to buy better armor. I recommend starting the game and immediately buying at least Padded Leather or a couple of Leather Lamellar Armors for most of your mercenaries. You will see that your casualties in the early game will reduce significantly or will go away altogether. If you are buying “Thick Tunics” for your mercenaries in the beginning, you will die a lot.
