I prefer to make my men all-arounders. I go first for the support tree at least 3 perks deep,
equip my men with ranged weapons, shield+1H and 2H long weaponry. This way I get universal fighters
and my troops cannot be flanked. Archers can transform into frontliners or 2line warrioirs.
Since I take support line first, I can have someone with “Captain” perk, then depending on the
rolls, can advance further on the defensive/offensive perk tree. This way – as long as I keep
my men in a tight formation nothing really have a standing chance against my troops.
