Armed Peasantry (ETW Unit)
These people are the common populace with whatever dangerous weapons they can obtain by fair means or foul. If a leader has reached the point of asking his people to act as this kind of militia, things are indeed desperate! If the governed have reached this point on their own, then matters are truly desperate for their leaders!
Armed Peasantry are a Mob unit available only to the Eastern factions. They have very poor shooting skills and melee skills. They will also rout very easily due to their low morale. However if used en masse they can prove to be a useful force as they are fairly expendable. Armed Peasantry will become available during a siege of an eastern settlement, and the number of them will result from the public happiness of the population. Faction capitals tend to have a large number of Mob units.
