The crossbow is an excellent weapon for the Venetian militiaman, being easy to use, although slow to reload. These Italian allies accompanying the knights of the Fourth Crusade carry a large pavise shield to give them some protection while reloading. Being relatively wealthy townsfolk, the Crossbow Militia can also afford decent armour. A certain number of militia can be maintained in a city for free.
