Hi Gus.

They are included in the Jewish Revolt army list released as part of the Legions Triumphant DLC.

For those who are on the fence about the latest DLC, there is a tournament coming up starting on 3 June.  Here's the info
http://www.matrixgames.com/news/2853/FOG2.Grand.Wolves.at.the.Gate.Tournament

You don't need the latest DLC to play, but the tournament will include the Army list from the latest DLC.  Here are the battles in th tournament:
 

-Arab (Umayyad) 685-750 AD vs Frankish 600-750 AD. Between 717 and 732, when they were decisively defeated by the Franks at the Battle of Tours, Umayyad forces from recently conquered Spain campaigned into southern France. Mediterranean Agricultural.
-Viking 790-899 AD vs Frankish 751-887 AD. In 845 AD a Viking fleet sailed up the River Seine, defeated King Charles the Bald’s army in battle and sacked Paris. North European Agricultural.
-Scots 851-1051 AD with Viking 900-1049 AD allies vs Anglo-Saxon 871-949 AD. Following an unchallenged invasion of Scotland by King Æthelstan of England in 934 AD, in 937 England was counter-invaded by an alliance of King Constantine II of Alba (Scotland), King Olaf Guthfrithson of Dublin and others. They were defeated by King Æthelstanat the Battle ofBrunanburh, somewhere in northern England. North European Agricultural.
-Byzantine 988-1041 AD vs Fatimid 978-1073 AD. Between 995 and 999 the Byzantine Empire and Fatimid Caliphate fought over control of Syria. Middle-Eastern Agricultural.
-Arab (North Africa) 1000-1160 AD with Byzantine 988-1041 AD allies vs German 933-1049 AD. Following the defeat of the Holy Roman Emperor Otto II at the Battle of Crotone in southern Italy by Aghlabid Muslim forces from Sicily in 982, Muslim and Byzantine forces cooperated in recapturing Apulia from the Ottonian forces. Mediterranean Agricultural.

Anyone try the Basil II campaign? I got my butt handed to me in the first battle. OUCH. 56%of my army lost.

I haven't played the Basil II campaign yet, but I started the Viking campaign and won the first battle. I've also played as and against the Franks, once in the Charlemagne campaign and once in a quick battle. I'm really enjoying the DLC so far. I think its a fantastic addition to FoG2 and I especially like that they keep going forwards in history. Really hoping for a Crusades DLC next. This is also making me even more excited for FoG Empires, if its even possible to get more excited. Its a great time to have an interest in the Classics.

Did a Viking vs Anglo quick battle. Was quite the bloodbath. I won but it was close.
Had forgotten how much I like this game. Used to play a LOT of DBA and this feels close enough.

Vikings I am finding are pretty limited once the terrain gets rough as they have deficiencies in Medium Infantry and are weak in the skirmish category as well.

Their heavy infantry is tough but expensive.

Saxons are more flexible imo.

I have been playing Single Player, Franks against Anglo-Saxons and then mirroring. Good battles reasonably evenly matched.

Just picked the base game up on Steam on sale, and I'm kicking myself for not doing it sooner   Great game!

I recently bought FoG 2 on sale over at Steam in preparation for the release of FoG Empires.  Very cool game.  Wish I would have bought it sooner.  This tactical combat system linked to the strategic system of Empires has a lot of potential.  Really looking forward to playing Empires and exporting some of the tactical battles to FoG 2.
