  • Forlorn hope thumbnail.png These desperate men are armed with a massive two-handed sword and thick armour.


    The 'Verlorene Haufen' or Forlorn Hope as they are known, are comprised of prisoners and volunteers desperate for glory. Their job is to lead the first and usually fatal charge used to break up enemy pike formations. The Forlorn Hope are heavily armoured and wield massive "zweihander" swords. These units are vicious assault troops who can chop a man into bloody pieces.


    The Forlorn Hope are a unit, which carry massive, two-handed swords, which can inflict serious damage on the enemy. They have high attack and charge and relatively low defence. They wear partial metal plate armour, providing them with some protection against missiles and melee attacks. While the Forlorn Hope have a much higher attack than their counterparts the Zweihanders, they have less armour and defence. While they are cheaper to recruit than the Zweihanders, they have a much higher upkeep cost and they are not as disciplined. They also have half as many men as the Zweihander unit. The Forlorn Hope are recruitable from cities, meaning you maintain the wealth of a civil settlement and still benefit from a high damage unit, which would normally require a castle.
