Total War: Warhammer Wiki:Style Guide/Unit is a [[Faction]] melee infantry/ranged cavalry/etc. unit in Total War: Warhammer.

Description[edit | edit source]

Typically this is copied from the Total War: Warhammer encyclopedia The example below comes from [1]


"Rejoice! For a Knight of Bretonnia provides your shield…"

The life of a Bretonnian peasant is thankless, impoverished and - if the gods are merciful - short. Yet it is their duty to labour for, pay tribute to, and die in service of their Liege. Yet although a life spent toiling the land for pitiful gain is a damnable existence, it pales next to a day upon the battlefield. And indeed, should a Duke ride to war, he will surely drag his droves of human chattel along with him. These hapless wanderers are then assuredly butchered in their multitudes as fodder to their Lord's worthy cause. To make their numbers count, peasants are ordered into huddled units on the battlefield, which makes up for their lack of training and skill. Like Men-At-Arms, Peasant Mobs are not very reliable if left to their own devices, but under the stern gaze of a Knight can aspire to adequate, though not exceptional, deeds.

Strengths & Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

These are the bulletpoints on the back of the unit card in-game. As these are re-used frequently between units, they have been separated out into various template files. The ones which have been made already are collected in Category:Bulletpoint_templates. An example of what they look like when in use is below:

  • Expendable: This unit is comparably cheap to recruit, maintain and replenish.
  • Poor Leadership: This unit suffers from poor leadership and will easily rout. Keep its flanks secure and your Lord or other encouraging units nearby.

The above is created by the following wikitext: {{Bulletpoint expendable}} {{bulletpoint poor_morale}}


At the bottom of the page you should put some category identifiers, which look like [[Category:Faction Units]]

Template[edit | edit source]

You can copy this template when creating a new unit page.

Note that any fields which you don't have information for, or which information doesn't exist for e.g. ranged attack for melee units, should just be left blank.
