Mercenaries wearing light armour and equipped with spears, useful for armies lacking sufficient defence against cavalry companies.
Along with the club and bow, the spear is one of the oldest weapons. Easy to use, it is the most common weapon on battlefields throughout Europe. Wherever you go there are men for hire who can use a spear, and use it well. Wearing light armour and being solid defenders, these mercenaries are useful to bolster the ranks of any army.
