Free Company Militia

These men did not ask for war, yet it has come all the same. With sword in hand, they fight because they must.

Whilst state troops form the mainstay of the Empire’s military forces, its armies are often bulked out by ad hoc regiments of militia who are recruited, willingly or not, to fight as and when required. No one can foretell how many will turn up at the muster, or what their fighting quality will be. After all, these irregular troops receive no formal training or discipline. Many militias are formed of townsfolk and villagers levied from the local countryside – brave men standing ready to defend their homes and families against the monsters and beasts that constantly threaten them. Other militias are bands of mercenaries, bandits or other curs used to living by the strength of their sword arm, hired or pressed into service.

Attributes

  • {{tr:guerrilla_deployment}}
  • Hide (forest)
    This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Decent Melee Combatant
    Despite being primarily a missile unit or spellcaster, this unit can also hold its own ground when fighting in melee.
  • Weak Against Armour
    This unit's attack can hardly punch through armour and is thus wasted on heavily armoured enemies.
  • Vanguard Deployment
    This unit can deploy in an expanded deployment area, allowing it to start the battle within striking distance of the enemy - or somewhere unexpected.
