  • Dahomey amazons Thumb.png These merciless female warriors, armed with rifles, are rightly feared by men for their aggression in battle.


    Originally formed as a band of elephant hunters, they were developed into a royal bodyguard recruited from among the King’s wives, a group of women that sometimes numbered in the hundreds. Willing volunteers expand this force, while other recruits are put forward by disgruntled husbands and fathers who visit the King with tales of spousal misbehavior! The Amazons are denied the right to marriage once in the regiment, and religion is used to give them a sense of being sacred.

    They are extremely well trained, and inculcated with a very aggressive attitude. They are ferocious fighters with a reputation for decapitating those who are unfortunate to become their captives. Woe betide the foe that underestimates them!


    Dahomey Amazons are a militia unit recruitable only in North Africa. They are able to behave as Light Infantry and wield rifles meaning that they can be a useful skirmisher unit of you have a very limited amount if funds. Dahomey Amazons should be used to harass the enemy lines and take on enemy skirmishers. However due to their very low melee statistics they should avoid melee at all costs.
