Swadian Sergeants are Swadian heavy infantry and are the top-tier infantry unit in the Swadian troop tree.

Swadian Sergeants are hardened, veteran warriors that tend to wield sharpened awlpikes, morningstars and other vicious weapons.

Compared to other units, Swadian Sergeants are the footman equivalent of Swadian Knights and even look very similar to dismounted Knights. They are not as durable as the Nord Huscarl, but they do sometimes spawn with better armor. Swadian Sergeants are much better in close combat than Rhodok Sergeants, but are weaker in defense due to their smaller shields. They are also much better than Vaegir Guards, and generally have higher-tier armor which allows them to last in a melee for longer.

Swadian keeps are staffed by Swadian Sergeants.


One field tactic is to use the mobility of Swadian Knights to get all the way behind the enemy lines, then attack with Sergeants and Knights at the same time, crushing enemies in between. This is most effective against slow-moving Nord and Rhodok armies that don't have any cavalry. Also, your Knights can wipe out archers/crossbowmen before they get off too many shots.

Another field tactic is to deploy Knights at the forefront, backed up closely behind by Sergeants. When the enemy gets close, charge with your Knights and Sergeants. The former will hit the enemy first then the Sergeants will back them up with added power. This is good for fighting Vaegirs or Sarranids, and is also good against Khergits that are free charging, but not if they are running circles around you.

They are also good in sieges, especially against Nords. Their morningstars can crush through blocks, making the Nord shield wall less effective.
