About

Unit Description

The Swordsmen form a resolute battle line. Blades in hand, they thrive in melee, at the heart of battle.

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, they 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. Each Imperial state trains its regiments to fight together, providing each other with mutual protection on the battlefield. Swordsmen fight shoulder to shoulder with Spearmen, the close-range parries and ripostes of the sword complementing the longer reach of the spear.

Attributes
