Powhatan Warriors (ETW Unit)
Warriors dominate Native American society. They defend the tribes and earn renown while doing so. This gives them the status to become unchallenged chiefs and leaders in all aspects of tribal life. Hunting is also a fine preparation for war, as it teaches a man to be unafraid of bloodshed and danger.
Historically, the tribes used a wide variety of weapons for the hunt and warfare. Some were the same for both but others, like the war club, were of little use except when hunting other men. Traditionally carved from a single piece of hard wood, as the influence of Europeans grew, the war club came to imitate the shape of a rifle butt.
Powhatan Warriors are a melee unit available only to the Powhatan Confederacy in the Road to Independence campaign. They are a versatile unit, capable of dealing deadly blows to enemy units in melee. They are also apt at creating ambushes due to their abilities at hiding. This can cause havoc among enemy lines. However they should not attack musket armed troops head on as this will likely end in disaster.
