Bataroas hail from a region the Romans call Transalpine Gaul (Gaul, the other side of the Alps). Raised from the Celtic warrior class, these Gauls are proud and experienced fighters who often value feats of impetuous valour over acts of more prudent common sense.

Description

The Bataroas hail from a region the Romans call Transalpine Gaul (Gaul the other side of the Alps). Raised from the Celtic Warrior Class, these Gauls are proud and experienced fighters who often value feats of impetuous valour over acts of more prudent common sense.

Despite a Celtic propensity to become easily discouraged when faced with determined opposition and to suffer under a hot sun, an unwary foe will soon be parted with their head. The Celts are large men and the Bataroas use their strength to hurl their spears at great distances before closing with their long swords.

Usage

Widely available and affordable, Bataroas have acceptable offensive and defensive skill, as well as a quite acceptable morale. They are reliable troops which can be used as troops of the line, but the player must always keep in mind that they are only lightly armored and will suffer high casualties in prolonged melee or when exposed to missile fire.

Bataroas do not have a high morale and can, especially when inexperienced and near a routing unit (e.g. Lugoae), begin to rout. However, the high lethality of their longswords, their javelins and also their high stamina make them determined flanking troops, especially useful against the unarmoured tribal warriors of northern Europe.
