Do folks use mounted scouts in Biblical period games.
Never thought thought they really had a battle use. More messanger. CP 28mm Miniatures have Sumerian scouts. Really cool looking riding donkeys. Could be pushing it as light cavalry. But interesting.

I have not – I think as you do that they were mostly scouts and messengers, not actual light cavalry

But, of course, cool is King!
Usefulness is no reason not to have one or two around anyway.

Sure they could work into a Biblical Rampant scenario.
