Marauder Hunters (Javelins)The Hunter’s javelin takes down the largest of wild beasts, and the most gargantuan of foes.
The ruthless martial societies of the northern tribes see many men cast out into the wastes due to some transgression or another against their clan. An unforgiving way of life means that it is often impossible for these men to re-assimilate themselves into the warrior hierarchy. The few exiles that avoid death out in the freezing tundra often come together to form bloodthirsty bands of wild hunters, etching out a brutal existence that makes them even more hardened, callous, and adept as warriors – Marauders with the skill of ambush hunters. Attaining such skills is a way back into the battle ranks: when larger forces of tribesmen come together, the Marauder Hunters’ terrifyingly efficient ambushes frequently mark the beginning of their raids.

These warriors have something of an anger management problem. Funnily enough, no one has yet found a safe way to broach the issue.
- 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.
Anti-large units have an advantage against targets that are at least as large as a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against large targets or an attack that focuses on a very small area. However, some units are simply better against large targets because their attacks are slow and easy to dodge by skilled melee combatants.
