The Marksmen

The confident and vain Marksmen believe that the only true and noble way of fighting, is that of the archers, and so they train to expertise in this art; how to hit a foe, as well as how to make best use of their skill in battle. They feel that the fray and chaos of the melee is below their stature, and that the way to kill a foe should be an arrow through the heart. They do not refuse to melee, but rather prefer the use of their sturdy bows.

Marksman uniform and armament

Marksmen wear chain armour, as it gives them more room to use their bows. Only exception is that of the arms, where they wear plate golden arms. The Marksmen do not wear any coifs, but instead a feathered hat and a cloak, both in the same colour as the guardsman kilt. For weaponry they strongly prefer a bow, crossbow or heavy crossbow, but may wield one-handed melee weapons or axes in combat as well. No shields, however.
