I thought I’d take a moment to describe each fighting class.
Laborer: The most basic bandit unit. This acts as their average worker. They do basic tasks from hauling, simple construction, etc. They could easily be compared to basic villagers from the default kingdoms.
Cutthroat: An extremely weak fighting unit. They are completely unarmored and only have a simple dagger. In a group they might even pose a threat, but alone, they are just pests to any well trained soldiers.
Thief: These poorly trained and under equipped archers have a shortbow and almost no armor. They don’t even have a melee weapon, so if anyone gets into range, they are toast. Which isn’t difficult to do, because of their poor training and shoddy bows give them fairly short range.
Bowman: This archer has actually received some decent training, and can take out enemies from such a longer range. They have a dagger for some basic defense if someone gets close, and some rusted armor. They also have a longbow instead of the shaddy shortbow that the thief uses.
Raider: This warrior is a good upgrade from the cutthroat. He has some decent armor, though it is rusty. He uses a cleaver-like blade that is good for hacking through enemy lines. Raider’s are good vs. other enemy infantry, but are very weak to archers.
Footpad: These warriors are lightly armored, but carry a shield to try and make up for that. They also wield a small warhammer. Their lack of strong armor makes them somewhat easier to take down than raiders in close combat, but they are still capable of being a strong front line soldier, and their shield gives them a large amount of protection from archers.
Slaver: (Name Subject to Change) The slaver uses a long spear and lacks any form of armor. They are very good at defending a choke point, starting a battle with a charge, or defending against cavalry, but they go down quite quickly in sustained combat.
Marauder: This soldier is fairly well armed and armored. He has a well-used sword, has plenty of armor, albeit rusted, and has a shield. They have a small tower-sheild which offers great protection from archers, and they can do well in sustained combat. However, they do move fairly slowly, their shields and armor being quite heavy.
That’s all for now. I’m gunna go through and finish coloring up the guys I have now, and begin modeling some new guys.
