Eldred's Guard (Spearmen) are an Imperial Supply unit added in The Empire Undivided Update from Solland/The Golden Order. Only the most disciplined and highly-trained are suitable for service with Solland's elite guard regiment.

Description[edit | edit source]

Solland and their Elector Count Eldred were lost when a massive Orc Waaagh!, led by Gorbad Ironclaw in 1707 IC, attacked the province. The Solland Runefang Grudge Settler was seized by the invaders after the Battle of Solland's Crown and it is said that Gorbad ripped of the crown of Solland from the head of the slain Elector Count and placed it on his own head. The Runefang was retrieved centuries later by a joint group of Men and dwarfs under dwarf Thane Ergrim Stonehammer from the lair of a chimaera in the World's Edge Mountains. Stonehammer presented it to the Emperor in Altdorf, who took it and placed it in the Imperial Treasury.

Attributes[edit | edit source]

  • Charge reflector.png Expert Charge Defence: When bracing, this unit negates the charge bonus of any attacker.
  • Anti-Large: Anti-large units have an advantage against targets that are at least as large as a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against large targets or an attack that focuses on a very small area. However, some units are simply better against large targets because their attacks are slow and easy to dodge by skilled melee combatants.
