Pike Militias range from armed peasants to semi-professional well trained and equipped soldiers.
The pike-man is a staple of the late Medieval army, and the arms of militia mirror those of professional soldiers. Pike armed militia with a modest amount of training can hold a defensive position very well, though they need good support. Initially lacking armour and thus vulnerable to shooting, this company can be upgraded to be much better protected.
