Orc Shieldbearer


Some soldiers are given a special role, quite different from any of their comrades. Shieldbearers carry no real weapon at all. Their unique duty is to protect the wounded, patch up holes in the line and, if all looks to be lost, hold off the enemy long enough to cover their retreating army. It has often been said by the Steppe Orcs that while the Shieldbearers have never secured victory, they have numerous times prevented utter defeat.

Special Notes: The steadiness of this unit reduces damage from some attacks, but only while defending. This unit is able to slow its enemies, halving their movement speed and attack damage until they end a turn.
