Spain General's Bodyguard.

Spain is an heavily infantry focused faction, because of their Bull Warriors, an extremely useful light infantry unit with 2 hitpoints that can form a very strong battleline. Bull Warriors essentially make the faction. Their cavalry is decent early on but falls behind a bit in the late game. They have no Spearmen worthy of mention. Their missiles are very poor except for Balearic Slinger Mercenaries. Their early roster is quite weak, similar to Carthage except with the addition of Naked Fanatics.

  • Missile
    • Slingers
    • Balearic Slingers
    • Skimishers
  • Siege
    • Onagers
