Two-handed axemen used as shock soldiers. Can be armoured from mail to brigandine.
Wielding the mighty 'berdiche' these axemen strike fear into the hearts of their enemies, just before striking into the hearts of their enemies! Berdiche Axemen receive plenty of training to wield their fearsome two-handed axes and are armoured appropriately with armour from mail up to heavy brigandine. Many Rus' Generals use these men as shock soldiers softening up enemy formations.
