About

Unit Description

The heart of any battle and the embodiment of Sigmar's will as they heroically engage the foe.

Historical Description

State troops are paid as full-time professional soldiers, ready to answer the call-to-arms at all times. In addition to forming a standing army to repel enemy attack, state troops also serve as city guards, the fire watch and the enforcers of the law. However, most of the time these soldiers spend their days drilling and training with various weapons to the barked instructions of grim-faced Sergeants and veteran Marksmen. Every state trains its regiments to fight together to provide each other with mutual protection on the battlefield. Imperial armies often march to battle with detachments of missile troops to aid them, who form up close to melee units to guard vulnerable flanks, provide support by showering oncoming enemies with missile fire, or wade into the fray alongside their specialist counterparts. Swordsmen fight shoulder to shoulder with Spearmen, the close-range parries and ripostes of swords complementing the longer reach of the spear. Handgunners and Crossbowmen fell their foes with withering volleys of fire. Should a foe survive such salvos, a unit of Halberdiers will cut them down with their heavy-bladed polearms.
