    Overview

    The flexibility of Mohawk Elite Warriors makes them invaluable on the battlefield, and they can pepper an enemy at a distance with arrows then engage in close combat to break any survivors. The Mohawks are merciless in warfare and practice the collection of scalps for trophies, meaning enemies can expect a literally hair-raising death! Anybody who manages to avoid a scalping might be tortured before being burned at the stake, or, if very lucky, adopted into the clan as a replacement for a dead Mohawk.

    Historically, many Native American tribes used furs and skins to trade with the European settlers. High demand forced the Mohawks into intensive hunting that soon depleted the beaver population in their area, leaving them with little to trade. In 1630 the Mohawks started the ‘Beaver Wars’, attacking other tribes and seizing control of the lucrative fur trade. Because of their loyalty to the British, the Mohawks concentrated their attacks on the tribes trading with the French, hurting their enemies and making a profit in the process.

    Details

    Mohawk Elite Warriors are a unique unit available only to the Iroquois Confederacy in the Warpath Campaign. They are an elite archer unit capable of unleashing accurate and deadly volleys of arrows upon the enemy. When the enemy is too close the Mohawk Elite Warriors are able to handle themselves in melee combat with their tomahawks. However they should not be sent on a frontal attack against a formed up and ready Line Infantry unit as this would result in the Mohawk Elite Warriors being reduced to an inadequate number before melee. A better tactic would be to pepper the enemy with arrows before charging into melee whilst they are reforming.
