One correction to the article, I believe the Wainriders in AoTR are a unit for the upcoming Haradwaith faction, not Mordor.

Hm, I have just read it again, you are correct. I only noticed a comment of Mathijs that the Khandish Infantry remains in Mordor and assumed that this is valid for all Khand unit. Does not make a lot of sense for me that they split them up. Thanks, corrected the article.

The Last Alliance Mod for Shogun 2 is insane! An incredible technical and artistic achievement by the devs.
