Veteran soldiers and grim men clad in magnificent, finely-wrought plate armour they act as shock troops for the Freeguild armies, often slaying with a song and smile as they carve gaps in the enemy lines.[1a]
They are led by a Guild Champion and are well known for their ability to safeguard officers of their regiment and other champions of Order. These units are also supported by Hornblowers and Standard Bearers.[1b]
Only those who have won countless battles and have taken part in the thickest and bloodiest fighting are promoted to Greatswords, both for their honour and feats of arms.
