    Overview

    Blackfoot Blood Warriors charge headlong into enemy lines bellowing fearsome war cries to terrify their enemies. They are experts at hand-to-hand fighting, and little use for anything else. Even the clothes they wear are designed to frighten and intimidate: Blood Warriors wear traditional war shirts emblazoned with symbolic representations depicting their victories in battle. These give the wearer the protection of the Spirits. They also provide an illustrated guide to all the reasons why an enemy should know fear!

    Warrior societies played a key role in the day to day life of young Native Americans. The Blackfoot Blood Warrior society, or “aiinikiks” (meaning “all comrades”), was a “graded” society. When a group of boys reached fighting age they would present the most junior members of the society with gifts in order to “purchase” positions. Once a deal had been struck between two fighters they would smoke a pipe to seal the deal. The warrior that had sold his position would then present gifts to a man in the grade above him, and move up in status.

    Details

    Blackfoot Blood Warriors are a unique unit available only to the Plains Nations in the Warpath campaign. They are a strong Melee unit and are able to defeat most other units in combat which are lesser trained than them. Their high melee statistics and good hiding abilities, means that they can set up deadly ambushes with other units. This combined with their high morale means that they can be relied upon in the heat of battle. However the Blackfoot Blood Warriors should not be used like European infantry as they will likely be gunned down before they can get into melee by the Europeans superior drill.
