So the dismountable units are available in the patch for everyone - not just buyers of the DLC?

"Some mounted unit types can be dismounted as equivalent infantry units at Deployment. This is confined to nations that often dismounted their cavalry, and currently only applies to units in the Age of Belisarius DLC."

My bad.  :-[

Very nice.  Glad I held off on the DLC.

  Yeah, but there is a Clovis I campaign -- holy shit!

Buying it was never a question.  I can't imagine an expansion for this I wouldn't buy.

I won't dive in for a bit with Origins and other stuff -- not to mention that I'm in the third round of the latest FoG2 tournament.

I do like, though, hanging out in a joint where a Clovis campaign brings roars of enthusiasm.

Looks like we have some common ground. According to the definition below, we CANNOT play the newest games...gotta go with the old ones.

No, we just play the new ones and grumble about them.

It counts.
