Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Ironcap Spearmen are a Silver era tower shield unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

The spear infantrymen of the Provincial army carry huge shields which they can use to make a shield wall and block an enemy advance. Their armour is quite light, making them vulnerable to flank or rear attacks, but as part of a properly deployed defensive line they are almost unbreakable.

Acquisition[ | ]

Ironcap Spearmen can be unlocked from the Melee Infantry unit tree, where they cost 7500 honour to unlock after prerequisites. This cost can be partially or fully defrayed using up to 20x Ironcap Spearman's Signaculum.
