In Swords and Scimitars, is it possible to build a Varangian army. It seems, although Im probably wrong, that in the starter battle, there are 3 units, and in the DAG you can have a maximum of 4 units.
Can you have any more?

Using DAG only can buy 4 Varangian units, the only way to have more is creating a scen where you can place all as you want with different values.

PD: a little question, 4 varangian units??? in beta were 5 no??? :?:

Historically, I'm not sure what you are looking for in terms of a Varangian army. If you mean Norse/Vikings or possibly Russ, these armies will be covered in later supplements. Vikings should be in "Wolves from the Sea" and Russ should be in "Decline and Fall." You could set up a Varnagian army for a scenario using the scenario editor.

To touch on what Chris stated if you go to the editor there is a folder for unit graphics titled "vikings" half dozen or so nice viking graphics there:)
(still cant find the Roman cataphact people were talking about from the beta though)
