Armed with very accurate rifles, these marksmen are an elite skirmishing force.

The flintlock rifles these men carry have an astonishing range and accuracy. Their skirmishing abilities allow them to use whatever cover is available to hide, stalk enemies, and then kill them at great distances. In an age of military peacocks, their uniforms are a dark, subdued colour to help them in their role as hunters. They are, however, not invulnerable. Like all skirmishers, they can be cut down by a carefully organised cavalry attack. They will also suffer if exposed to volleys from a line unit.

The 95th Rifles started in 1800 as the Experimental Corps of Riflemen in Horsham, Sussex (co-incidentally, the developers of this game are based in the same town). Unlike the rest of the British army, who sported the famous red coat, riflemen wore a distinctive dark green jacket, the first British attempt at camouflage. A good rifleman was expected to think for himself; if he could not read, he was taught, in order to give him a fair chance at promotion. The class distinctions between officers and men still existed in “the Rifles” but trust and respect were emphasised: officers, for example, regularly dined with their men. Officers were also expected to become marksmen at least as expert as their soldiers.
