Lowland Scots levied into a militia to defend their settlement. Armed with pikes for good defence against cavalry, but lacking in armour.
These lowland Scots have been levied into local militias to defend their settlement and bolster armies. Given some training and equipped with a pike, these companies are useful against cavalry and can resist good infantry for a while at least. Their lack of armour and shields make them very vulnerable to archery though.
