Nord Veterans are troops of the Kingdom of Nords. Veterans are hardy warriors who have seen numerous battles and have slain a good deal of enemies.

The Nord Veteran is only one step below the top Nord melee troop, the Nord Huscarl. Veterans have great defensive abilities, though players used to using the more elite Nord Huscarls may feel they are lacking in offensive ability. While they do not have the same powerful weapons as Huscarls, Nord Veterans will always have a shield and can form a much more consistent, if slightly weaker, shield wall.



A Veteran (below) and three warriors (above). Note the Veteran's mace, a rarity among Nordic troops.

Since Nord Huscarls take a long time to train, you'll end up having a good amount of these troops before you get some Huscarls. They are still heavy infantry though, and still have a chance to get throwing weapons. Some players may choose to keep these Veterans until they get enough money to pay for Huscarls, but it's strongly recommended you upgrade them whenever you can. They do have blunt weapons however, making them good at knocking out the opponent rather than killing them. This way, you can sell captured enemies as prisoners at a later date.
