Warbands are bound to the service of a strongman or petty village head. They are the basic unit to be found in many barbarian armies. They fight well, as glory and loot are the road to status, but are often difficult to control in battle. They care little for discipline and less for restraint, but they can be relied on to fight, and fight hard. In warfare it is up to each man to prove his own bravery and worth, so the savage charge into the enemy is about as sophisticated as they ever want to be!
Each man carries a stabbing spear and a large shield.
