No truth be told many wouldnt, that would need special training... but wouldnt it be awesome to have a mounted army? it would be costly and time consuming but the speeds would be much improved perhaps at a cost of accuracy but it would be useful
Many armies revolved around their cavalry... And you cant say you dont get mounted archers... and of course you get lancers and such
Another question... can you change your units basic weapons? For example a normal sword into a 2 handed sword, a spear into a pike. For example you get 20 infantry, you give 10 spears 5 swords and 5 maces... or would you simplify it into making different unit sets
