Archer

These lightly armoured missile troops are your standard ranged unit. Their light armour makes them one of the fastest units in the game but they pay the price in hand to hand where they are somewhat below par! Their long ranged arrows are very successful against weakly armoured troops but their arrows struggle to penetrate better armoured opposition.

Armed Peasant

Armed only with a pitchfork these cheap soldiers are untrained and very weak in combat, but can serve quite usefully to find sneaky traps set down by the enemy.

Armour Required: None
Gold Required: 5
Honour Required: None
Speed: Fast
Shot range: Not applicable
