Militia

MILITIA were citizens or mobs armed with weapons for hand to hand combat. EnGarde Wargaming Citizen groups often used halberds, a pole topped by a blade that looked like a can opener! In England, the halberd was replaced by a variant called the bill, and billmen were combined with longbowmen during the Wars of the Roses. Other militia carried spears or other outdated weapons.
