Excellent skirmishes, lightly armoured and fighting with a javelin in Iberian fashion.
Since the days of the Lusitani tribes in ancient times, the Portuguese have had a long tradition of fighting with the javelin. These lightly armoured skirmishers, drawn from the peasantry, are armed with javelins which they hurl at their foes to weaken their enemies and break up formations. Despite their humble origins these soldiers are excellent skirmishes.
