Men who use war hammers to crush heavily armored units. Relies on strength of attack to be their defense. Light armor such as leather or mail.

The one told of above would use 1 weapon that needs both hands.

There is a possibility that unit could be used have a lighter, shorter hammer with less attack but weilded with one hand and the other hand have a sheild. Better armor

Another possibility is two lighter, shorter hammer with two attacks

Maybe these could be upgrades of one another

Nordic chief warrior,very strong unit with a hammer,has a big bonus against buildings and siege,archers counter them,they have alot of hp and are fairly slow units and expensive (4-5 turns) also they give morale to units around him

I think he is saying that they should have no pierce armor probably.

However, I do not think a hammer makes sense for nords. Nordic culture was powerful around the 8th century I believe, and heavy armors like plate didn't really exist until the 13th century, which is what war hammers were originally built to be good against.

I think nordic warriors used swords/axes/cutting things.

War hammer topic was a similar idea without a special name so merged!
Thanks!
