Armed Populace (ETW Unit)
[[Image:]]Arming the people is something that leaders find detestable and frightening, necessary perhaps, but certainly unwelcome.
These people are the common populace with whatever dangerous weapons they can obtain by fair means or foul. If a leader has reached the point of asking his people to act as this kind of militia, things are indeed desperate! If the governed have reached this point on their own, then matters are truly desperate for their leaders!
This unit is the counterpart of the Armed Peasantry unit, it is identical in all aspects apart from the choice of weapon. This poorly equipped unit the swords common to the eastern nations such as scimitars; armour wise they are clothed in rags. They lack any form of training and can be expected to panic if they're engaged in any combat. They however are quite cheap.
