These well trained warriors are protected by plate armour and wield a mighty two-handed sword.
Literally meaning "two hander's," in German, in reference to the grip needed to wield their massive swords. Zweihanders are very heavily armoured foot soldiers who can cut a bloody swathe through nearly all infantry they will encounter. This company is deployed by the Holy Roman Empire and often forms the vanguard when assaulting enemy battle lines.
