Wardogs can be used as an ambushing unit, sent out to wait in long grass or forests and hide from the enemy, waiting for them to get within range and attack. Once the Wardogs have charged an enemy, any soldiers that are knocked down become pinned and struggle to return to their feet.
Wardogs are a counter-defensive unit best employed when taking down Pikes and Spears. The Wardogs add a new mechanic in that they can ignore a unit in phalanx and break through.
The Wardogs sub-unit that detaches from the handlers is not affected by the morale system, so they will never rout or deal morale damage, but if the handlers die, the Wardogs will scatter and run away.
Here you see only some of the units belonging to this faction. Many more are eager to follow your orders and charge into battle, Commander.
Rally them under your banners!
