Run Dom with the -ddd switch. Should have the story after sifting through the log.

Your Jarl will also retreat if there's enough hit points of other units on his side in the battle, including province defense, who are all killed.

Actually, because you only need to go up the constr research tree, it is a superb tactic.
The other obvious option is a fatigue kill. A bunch of Stellar Cascades could probably do a lot, if the mages involved decided to cooperate, and the same can be simulated with the lightning spells. Then there is Charm, though I don't recall the Charm-Mindless interaction off the fop of my head. Still, even with that up these things are comparatively cheap, and really quite nasty.

Siege Golems are actually immune to all elements and poison, so the lightning isn't a problem for them. They're reasonably resistant to fatigue spells as well with that much protection, but of course it could still eventually drop them and stellar cascades spam will kill just about anything in sufficient volume. I would actually be more afraid of something stupid like Swarm though.

Right. Duh. I knew about the immunities too, and somehow just spaced it. As for Swarm, I really wouldn't be surprised if that worked decently. Then there are the various immobilization spells, and of course, the banishment spells. Alternately, just hit them with Gifts from Heaven a few time, as 150 damage hits are the sort of thing that renders protection largely irrelevant.

disintegrate is one of those spells AI actually will cast on its own vs high size/hp units, so the standard hold x5 in the back method to defeat short ranged scripted counters won't save said low MR construct SCs.

You'll need the research and preferably plentiful national D access of course.
