"All right, let's get this done. Send in the Goats!"
Dáin Ironfoot

The Scout of the Iron Hills is a lone Ram Rider which is excellent for exploring the map, taking the role of the Scout hero that other factions have. His major asset is his speed. While the Scout is able to attack enemy units, don't expect him to survive long. The Scout can be upgraded to a troop of Ram Riders, the Iron Hills' elite cavalry unit, once Narin has been recruited. Only three scouts can be on the battlefield at the same time.

Strategy

The Ram Riders are good at scouting the map and are pretty cheap and fast to get. They are useful for early scouting and getting settlements and outposts quickly, but don't forget to get Narin, once you have him they can be upgraded to be a battalion and once done they are the elite cavalry unit of Iron Hills. After they get upgraded they become a fast and strong cavalry unit.
