Norse Huscarl


Huscarls are the bodyguards of nobles and other such notable figures, and make up the core of the professional army of the Vaeringjar. They are famed for their use of all weapons, but especially the bearded axe.

One aspect of their training is to become equally good with both hands, a skill they make full use of in battle. Most weapon strikes are made for right handed warriors; a left-handed warrior might be able to take some advantage of this, but the Huscarls, with their full knowledge of right handed fighting, can really use this as a great advantage.

Special Notes: This unit rises physical resistances by 20% when adjacent to another unit with shield wall ability during defense. Opponents struggle to retaliate against this unit in melee, having only half the chance to hit.
