Slaganz are the runts of the Suebi horde, and consist of light melee infantry armed with clubs. They're not that heavily armoured, and if they encounter other melee infantry, they are more likely than not to be easily taken out. Even so, they are fairly cheap to produce, and in sufficient numbers can be used to take out unarmoured missile infantrymen. Levied units such as Leves and/or Akontistai are easy prey for the Slaganz warbands, but you should keep these units far away from cavalry as possible. The Slaganz however is useful to the Suebi, as it can be synergised along with the Suebi player's ability to cloak units in friendly territory, so they can be used to fool and deceive the enemy whenever they attack,

HistoryEdit

The first soldiers were local people called up for military duty in times of emergency. These temporary soldiers were commonly armed with any weapon used for hunting game and other wildlife. A common development of these weapons were wooden spears and large pieces of wood or bone. These tools were easily made since they could be crafted very easily and were an extension of weapons already used for hunting and gathering. Early troops that used these weapons were effective and needed minimum training. The club itself had very little practical use other than for combat against other humans since it was too slow and cumbersome to hunt game.
