To recruit an army you need to construct military buildings. With the help of these buildings you can recruit several different military units like spearmen or macemen. You can lead your troops to conquer robber baron castles around you or attack other players. The key to victory is the right attack strategy. Choose between attacking the front, the left or the right side of the castle. To help your soldiers you can equip them with tools like scaling ladders, siege towers and batting rams.
