Sorry if this seems like a noob question, but I was wondering whether it's only RoR that can be fielded as dogs of war, or can you take units form the standard dogs of war lsit. I ask because I'd like to try and add a unit of light close combat cavalry to an empire army without black powder, using counts as, and desert dogs are too expensive.

Thanks

Hi

The DoW army list tell you who can hire them. Empire can hire them all.

Light cavalry is a Rare choice in an Empire Army.

Thanks Festus. You seem to be answering all my rules queries here :)

Edit: and I;ve just noticed that light cavalry don't have light armour, They are jsut asking to die!

You'll also note that they cost virtually nothing and have the fast cavalry rule. Their job isn't to run straight forward into combat, it's to flank, flee and be expendable to draw out enemy units.
