Empire Pikeman (profile)

Empire Pikeman (v3.7)

Empire Pikemen provide are an anti-cavalry support unit you get from Empire Light Infantry. With their polearms they can bring most cavalry to a halt and let the other units finish them off, while the rest of the gear is mostly the same as Empire Heavy Infantry with only difference being weapons, as they lack thrown and one-handed weapons preventing them from using shields. These guys should be supported with shield units as archers will cut them down with ease due to their lack of shields. Upgrade them to Empire Armored Pikeman to make most out of them.
