These well trained warriors are protected by heavy armour and wield a mighty two-handed sword.
Literally meaning two hander's, in German, in reference to the grip needed to wield their massive swords. Zweihanders are very heavily armoured foot soldiers who can cut a bloody swathe through nearly all infantry they will encounter. This company is deployed by the Order of the Knights Templar and often forms the vanguard when assaulting enemy battle lines.
