This article contains lore or information taken from Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and/or its manual.

Footmen are the backbone of the King's armies. They are foot soldiers trained in the art of melee combat using the sword and shield. Well armored for maximum defense against attacks, they can also deliver a solid blow with their double edged weapons.[1]

Information

The backbone of any army, Footmen are the most basic attacking units that can be built. While not very powerful or resistant, they are well prepared to take on any unit, are cheap and don't require any lumber or any additional buildings to train, making them both the first line of attack of an army and a resourceful last-ditch defence. They also come in handy as cannon fodder, to take on Water Elementals or Daemons while the latter are being attacked by Archers and spell casters.
