Unit Description

The ability to shoot several arrows per minute means that Archers are still far more efficient than more technically-advanced skirmish troops.

Historical Description

Archers have been fielded by the Empire since time immemorial. Archer units are often irregular bands of hunters and trappers grouped together to form their own regiments, ready to answer the call to arms at any given moment, where their tracking, scouting, and advanced archery skills will be put to best use. Armed with bows and swords, these warriors are adept at luring their quarry into lethal ambushes so the full might of an Imperial army can utterly destroy them. Archers are adaptable, often forming a loose skirmish screen before falling back behind their army’s ranks when the enemy approaches.


Hide (forest)

This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.

Strengths & Weaknesses

Weak Against Armour

This unit's attack can hardly punch through armour and is thus wasted on heavily armoured enemies.
