Nodachi Samurai (STW unit)
|Weapon Type: Sword|
|Honour / Morale||13|
Requires: Sword Dojo
The No-Dachi is a huge two handed sword, and
the troops that wield them are most deadly.
They don't defend well, but should be used as
shocktroops for breaking enemy formations and
routing troops that are wavering.
Every samurai carried two swords as a mark of his
class. Samurai armed with the no dachi went one
better, as this was a large twohanded sword that
could cut down almost any opponent when used
Samurai armed with the no dachi are used as
shock troops to break into enemy formations.
They can also be used very effectively against
troops whose morale is already suspect — an
attack by a unit swinging two-handed swords can cause even the sternest heart to quail! No dachi samurai, then, are superb when used to take an attack to the enemy, but they are less effective when used defensively.
