Spear Levy are units recruited on an ad hoc basis, and vary greatly in endurance, discipline ... and not to mention combat skill, owing to the contingent nature of their deployment. They are not meant to function as the main striking force in any engagement, owing to their poorer armour and their individual worth as soldiers, but they are useful for holding line against melee light cavalry.


Ostensibly this is one of the few units to have culture-specific unit icons.
