Nordic Hurlers are a type of missile infantry in Total War: Attila.


"Sticks and stones will break enemy bones. Fact."

The role of a skirmisher, lightly-armed and kept from melee combat, was not the part that young people aspired to fulfil. Bursting with energy, they craved the glory of one-on-one combat. However, a fledgling warrior first had to prove their worth before earning the right to bear arms. If granted such an honour, they hungrily sought battle or risked growing idle. The strongest immediately joined a veteran warrior’s retinue, hoping to earn glory fighting alongside him. Typically, the young occupied themselves with inter-tribal warfare and raiding to prevent loss of fitness. Raiding other tribes was not recognised as a crime, but instead seen as necessary training for younger members to nurture and maintain their appetite for battle.
