  The equivalent of the other factions' basic militia troops, Hillmen are also civilians who have been handed weapons and sent into battle without any training or knowledge of tactics. This makes them largely useless on the battlefield, but they can be used to great effect for ambushes, raids, scouting, and such like. Their lack of training also means that they have poor discipline and morale. Hillmen are armed with spears.

Hillmen are equivalent to the militias of other factions however due to being one of only two infantry units available to Parthia, they play a more important role for them. The Hillmen are a wild and savage people. They are skilled hunters, transfering this to the battlefield by being adaquate ambushers, fast moving, and quite hardy. They are virtually superior in every way to Eastern Infantry but are not as effective as their counterparts against mounted cavalry.
