About

Unit Description

Wielding double-handed swords and wearing heavy plate, Greatswords are a potent elite unit with an impressive melee strength.

Historical Description

Greatswords garrison the castles of the Elector Counts and form an honour guard on state occasions. These men are equipped with two-handed swords called 'zweihanders' that can cleave an armoured Knight in twain with one blow. Greatswords wear Dwarf-forged plate armour, for they are expected to fight in the thick of the bloodiest, most dangerous situations. Upon induction into the Greatswords' esteemed ranks, members must swear an oath never to take a backwards step in the face of the enemy. Each regiment has its own particular punishment for those who do, but instances of such dereliction are extremely rare. In fact, Imperial history is peppered with tales of Greatswords killed protecting their lords even after the rest of their army had been butchered.
