Nord Trained Footmen are tier three melee troops of the Kingdom of Nords. The best armored unit of the third tier, on pair with the fourth tier infantry of other Factions.

They are trained fighters making up the majority of Nord jarls' retinues and garrisons. They are tougher than regular peasant soldiers like basic Footmen and Recruits, but are inferior to the seasoned Nord Warriors and Huscarls. Unlike most Nordic infantry, they do not carry throwing weapons.


Due to their lack of throwing weapons, it is best to use these as a backup to your archers in front of your soldiers who don't have ranged weapons. Trained Footmen are capable of fighting off any infantry of their tier. They have large, strong shields to deflect arrow fire and decent axes to break through others' shields. They are best used as "anti-shield" infantry, as they are very capable of breaking shields and the person wielding them in several shots.

Possibly their best trait is their overall skill. They are a quick jump from the Nord Footman, who have relatively weak armor. The Trained Footman has some mid to high-tier armour that can shrug off some mid-tier weapons, but heavy weaponry and crackshot archers may still pose a threat.
