Description: Equipped with a very long pole, much longer than that of a normal spear, pikemen were known to make excellent formations to bar cavalry charges, and keep other soldiers away long enough to have other units to deal with them.

Pikeman

Cost: 3
Hp: 13/15
Att: 5/7
Rng: 2
Armor: 1/0,2/1
Speed: 3
Action/Turn: 1
Vision: 4
SR: 0

Bonuses: 450% vs cavalry, 750% vs elephants

@Endru1241 ,let's bring this idea to life!

I've heard you mention this B4, better to bring this about, than to let it to be forgotten.

Not bad, the imgs could do with some polishing...

Maybe edit from standard AoS units like spearman and Broad swordsman, so the Armor can match.

From there, we can see what to do next.

1st tier: Edit from Spearman
2nd & 3rd: Edit from Halberdier, for 3 give (a little) gold like Man At Arms

Or post Spearman and Halberdier img, and I'll make tiers. ;)

I wonder about this.
I have imagined pike being longbow countrpart, so 1 upgrade only.
Image more based on AoF pike units weapons.

@Endru1241 ? What do you think?

I think damage should be 5, 7. With the same 450% bonus. After adding real pikeman, spearman line can get some rebalance.
HP or armor may be a little higher, but lower on piercing (1/0, 2/1) - pikeman were after all weak against missiles.

About images - I was thinking of adding something similar to current spearman upgrades. Maybe add some armor and polish the image.
Based on this:

Feel free to do it - I only posted a base. If it would retain similarities enough to be seen as part of the rest of base units - it's okay.

I would add him a little more bulky armor and different helmet - maybe just copy-paste (with corrections) crossbowman and arbalest.
It's actually more for the sake of making a little different appearance from main spearman line.
