While individually quick to reinforce and harder to kill for slightly less upkeep, their stats equalise on a per-upkeep bonus. They are essentially best used as a defensive militia, but can be used as a skirmisher in toe-to-toe battles or as recapturing forces (as most attacks are planned to protect ranged units, and contain slow artillery pieces); using Longbowmen is usually preferential on attacking.
They become obsolete in the Imperial Age.
