This lists starts after Frumgar led the Eotheod into the north in 3A1977. In 3A2510 at the invitation of Gondor they removed south to settle the plains of Calenardhon, afterwards called Rohan. Cavalry were mostly armed with lance, mail and shield, and are described charging in a wedge formation; however, a few were horse archers lightly-equipped with spare mounts. Earthen forts were manned at the Fords of Isen against Saruman, and defended by dismounted cavalry, and the Rohirrim fought on foot in the later part of the battle of the Pelennor Fields. Thus mounted troops may always dismount if the general of their command does so; Generals and Household Kn as Sp (S), other Kn (F) as Sp (O), LH (F) as Bw (I). Mimima marked * apply only if any troops marked * or *** are used, and may not be used in Rohan allied contingents to other armies. Minima marked ** apply only if any options marked ** are used, and may not be used with Gordor allies, nor in allied contingents supplied to other armies. Minima marked *** only apply if any Ents or Huorns are used. They can only be commanded by an Ent ally-general who must command no other troops. Ents are intelligent walking trees, Huorns their less sentient followers.
