Buccaneer - Peasant Bowmenplaceholder
Although inaccurate, Peasant Bowmen provide a cheap, plentiful line of defence against the oncoming enemy.
Even for a Black Orc, Grimgor's thirst for war was exceptional. If a single day went by without a battle, Grimgor was known to start camp-decimating arguments, his one good eye blazing with eagerness to find fault and start a good scrap. Two days without a battle and Grimgor would smite anything he could reach, save (perhaps) his fellow Black Orcs. No one knows for sure what would happen if three days without a battle ever occurred, but even scarred veterans tremble just to think of it. This unquenchable thirst for battle is a sign that marks out a Warboss for leadership, a sign that the Orc is favoured by Gork (or Mork). In a hulking Black Orc with unmatched fighting skills and ferocity it has marked out Grimgor for greatness; the prophet and harbinger of Gork (or Mork).
Although they speak their vows of duty, the peasants of Bretonnia do not understand. It is not their business to understand or to think - only to do. They do not know why they are summoned to fight - these things being beyond their regard - yet when the Greenskin hordes are bearing down upon them, low-born men know they must fight or die. Sometimes they are fortunate enough to be armed with rudimentary weapons; bows, with arrows drenched in oil and lit, or dipped in diseased buboes. Unlike Men-At-Arms, Peasant Bowmen are not equipped from the armouries of the castle and so their longbows will often be their own possessions, handed down from father to son and, accordingly, are of variable quality. Peasants who survive a battle may think themselves lucky until they too are stricken by fatal pox, mayhaps from a cut received whilst loading their unfamiliar and cumbersome weapons!
