Druzhina knight

The Druzhina are the lowest rank of hereditary nobles in the nation of Kislev. [5]

During times of war these nobles form their own regiments in a Kislevite army, and they look most impressive with their ancient armour and weapons, as most of these prized artefacts are handed down from father to son. Druzhina are rich enough to afford their own horses and weapons, as they are obliged to fight for the Tzar when needed. As payment for this obligation Druzhina are allowed to control their own land and pay less on their annual taxes.[1]

The rank of Druzhina is often given to common Gospodar and Ungol folk as a reward for their service. Those given this rank in this fashion are given the title for their life, but it is not passed to their sons.[2]

Personality

Druzhina tend to be resourceful and self-sufficient with a healthy attitude to the very real likelihood they will be killed during their military service. Often they have a disdain for city-dwellers and seek to preserve the rural hierarchy that provides their power and status. [5]

Mercenaries

Some find their way into the west as mercenaries where they increasingly resemble the knights of those nations. [4]

Weapons and Equipment

Although most carry a bow, their weapon of choice is a Great Axe.[5]

  • 3rd Edition: Hand Weapon, Lance, Light Armour, may have Heavy Armour, Shield, Champion and Standard Bearer with a Magic Standard. [4]
