Well equipped heavy cavalry with plate armour and a lance.
Composed of nobility and commoners alike, these men make up a powerful company of heavy cavalry. Well protected in their plate armour, and armed with a lance and sword, they pack a powerful charge on the battlefield, while being difficult to kill. Although extremely effective, they don't quite have the elan of true knights.
