Point taken. However, unlike the New Model Army, these fellows are unning around in full armor. However, they are probably as disciplined as the New Model Army was. Which, in Dragon Pass, is probably horrifying all by itself.

Would probably give an edge in tactics and maneuver and *not* charging when provoked. All that neat well-disciplined stuff that really hurts undisciplined neighbors (like the Grazelanders!)

It looks very vile yes. I'm quite impressed. But the religion just drips Puritanism. Its quite interesting. And the Rider/Steed relationship is pretty interesting as well. I am somehow reminded of the Black Company, but that's probably just because both are mercenaries and the word black is used....
