A unit of recruits standing
next to a unit of pikes.

Militia are the lowest type of unit class and most of your units will start as this class, there are exceptions, because some new commanders may have a unit pre-specified.

If you invest 6 coins in them, they can be upgraded to either Infantry, Archers, or Pikes.

They are the weakest type of unit you can have, and are weak against most enemy units.
Any enemy unit other than Archers (in melee combat) and Recruits will pose a serious threat to your Militia.



  • No shields; this makes them vulnerable to ranged attacks of any sort. (Notably Archers and throwing axes.)
  • Slower moving than upgraded units, poor melee initiative and trip more often.
