I've been taking it as the "first major assault" in the timeline, rather than during the BatBlat. The rest of his troops are attacking Tarkalor's gate - he hasn't got enough troops for more than a concentrated assault and he dithers about committing his best troops because he's doubtful that the plan will work. I think it's actually pretty close with Lunars on top of Tarkalor's gate at times and the defenders wondering why their leaders haven't brought up the reserves (Jane's Humatki, who are just a little busy at the time).
