Fantasy & Futuristic Warfare / Re: "Drums of War" - Fantasy battle game

Regards!
Today we present two other units that make up the bulk of each army, and that will be very important to maintain the advantage on the battlefield.

The Spearman Orc is a unit loyal to his horde and the hero who commands it. If the hero is injured during the battle, it will be cheaper to deploy the spearmen. In addition, among their ranks they have the best trackers and monster hunters.

The human Halberdier masterfully uses his advantage against enemy cavalry units, being deadly against these types of units. And they are used to fighting side by side with soldiers, which allows them to create a wonderful synergy with them.

The Great Khan has arisen, and has been making alarming headway.  He caught me off-guard by making a play for the strategically-critical Terminal Egress system and its master L-Gate, far sooner than I was anticipating. 

Fortunately, I was not completely unprepared:  I had earlier constructed a standard Gateway immediately adjacent to the L-Gate, which allowed both of my primary fleets to quickly counterattack and engage the enemy.  The Khanate would be more careful in the future.
