Are these supposed to have missile weapons? The list doesn't say so but I'd have thought they would have.

There isn't a Arab Conquest list, so you must be referring to a Beta - in which case it's open to whatever interpretation you want. Unless using it in a tournament that allows Betas I guess.

My instinct would say that camel mounted is usually transport not combat, so 'various weapons' at best.

I am referring to the beta lists.

Don't care for tournaments, but do like to work within the confines of a list otherwise anyone could just stick anything they wanted in their armies.

I thought Beta just meant "not in a supplement"

Beta means 'not official' as well as not in a supplement.

It also means its open to revision until then.

But I strongly suspect they're all about to become redundant anyway.

They tended to be transport, so weren't often used for fighting from.
I often felt that for Impetus they would best be shown as a base with a couple of camel mounted warriors and a bunch of infantry mixed up with them Smile
