These native tribesmen are willing to fight in return European gold, and a musket apiece.
A musket is a status symbol among the tribes, even though it is not as useful in a fight as an old-fashioned and reliable bow. It is, however, a mark of personal bravery that a warrior has taken one in battle, or been considered worthy enough to have been given one of the precious weapons. These men are the most irregular of forces, unwilling to take formal army discipline, yet willing to fight like men possessed when the need arises.
General Information Edit
These irregulars are can be very effective when used to provide supporting fire on the flanks of an enemy army. Like all irregulars, they have 90 range, a decent 35 accuracy and are able to move through long grass while hidden. This means they can easily be positioned on the flanks of an enemy army whilst hidden, and can be used to assassinate generals in battle, as they can sneak up close enough to unleash a few volleys before moving in to engage in melee or weakening it enough for it to be easily taken out by light cavalry/
