"Southward beyond the road lay the main force of the Haradrim, and there their horsemen were gathered about the standard of their chieftain. And he looked out, and in the growing light he saw the banner of the king ... Then he was filled with a red wrath and shouted aloud, and displaying his standard, black serpent upon scarlet, he came against the white horse and the green with great press of men; and the drawing of the scimitars of the Southrons was like a glitter of stars. "
The Return of the King

Haradrim Lancers are cavalry that come from Harad to fight for Mordor. They are summoned through the spellbook power Reinforcements of Harad (6pp) coming equipped with many upgrades. These Lancers are Mordor's most reliable cavalry, just under the heroic Morgul Riders. Along with that, they are one of the few Mordor units that can use formations. Summoning them costs 300 command points.

Strategy

Haradrim Lancers are cavalry that can trample through enemies with ease, but be wary of pikes that can easily cut them down. Due to their limited numbers they are best used to make precise strikes on enemy troops behind the main lines. They can also be used like all cavalry to take down retreating heroes and run down archers hiding behind enemy lines. Along with that they are also great for harassment strategies, hunting down resource buildings and destroying them.
