Formidable axemen from Scandinavia. Equipped with two-handed axes and protected by heavy armour
Nothing screams Scandinavian more than a burly blonde man maiming an opponent with a rather large axe. Being as the axe is a favoured weapon of all Norsemen, it comes as no surprise to find the Danes field companies exclusively armed with two-handed "Danish" Axes. Girded in heavy armour, Norse Axemen can absorb much punishment, before they dish out threefold.
