Hail Caesar: Ghulam Division

Third and final division is the professional Cavalry Division belonging to the army general.

Unit Clash Sust’ Short Long Save+ Stamina Special
Royal Ghulams 9 6 3 0 4 6 Lance
Ghulams 9 6 3 2 4 6
Turkoman 7 5 3 3 6 6
Turkoman- small 5 3 2 2 6 4

Roughly following the WAB book: Beyond the Golden Gate, the units form the mobile hammer of the army.  The Royal Ghulams are Malmuks – full time soldiers belonging to/employed by the army commander.  Taking a hint from Ian Heath’s Armies and Enemies of the Crusades, I’ve written the unit for melee combat rather than archery. The Ghulams are heavy cavalry, but are equally willing to dismiss units at range.  The  two Turkoman units perform the traditional roll of harassing the enemy from a distance.
