The Lukhata haGamla are a light cavalry unit, ideal for use against enemy cavalry. Although they are lightly armed and slow, they tend to have more hitpoints and armour compared to other factions' light cavalry, and also have a defensive bonus versus horse cavalry.
Use these units as a "rapid-response" team versus enemy light cavalry to defend light ranged units, but be aware that they are not as fast, so should you be attacked by ranged cavalry, any ranged units escorting them can be used to retaliate, thus defending your Lukhata haGamla.
Historically, the Prodromoi were smaller members of the nobility, which was beneficial both to their speed and their staying power. They were used for skirmishing and also to protect the heavy cavalry from missile troops.
