Hi, I'm just cuorious about a thing: in the Italian Manual, within the "Emperors timeline", there's a mention of pikemen being famous as part of the Imperial army during the reign of Wilhelm IV. Since italian translators don't always make good translations :rolleyes: I would like to konw if within the UK manual there's the word pikemen or maybe spearmen - it wouldn't be the first time that the spear get translated with pike :eyebrows:

Thanks!

It was probably at the time, when mercenaries and other dogs of war roamed the lands :p
