    • Infantry Units

      Infantry units are all trained to fight on foot. Musket-wielding light infantry forces are trained to move at speed, using the terrain and available cover, rather than fighting in set formations. They provide a constant, low-level barrage against enemy ranks and are tasked with picking off individual officers.

      Heavy infantry such as grenadiers are chosen for their size and strength. Armed with both muskets and grenades, these men are best placed on the front line of battle so their projectiles can dispel charging enemy ranks.

      Even in this age of gunpowder, a shrewd general may recruit a unit of swordsmen, for although a sword may appear outdated, it has one great advantage over a musket... it never needs reloading.
