Elite grenade-armed troops, capable of fighting in line with an impressive charge and excellent melee skills.

Armed with grenades and a powerful throwing arm, the Royal Welch Fusiliers are far more than your average missile troop. Their skills extend past the throwing of highly explosive projectiles, also encompassing the fine art of marksmanship, muskets being the weapon of choice. Although primarily expected to fight at range, fusiliers are also more than capable in melee and on the charge. Their only real weakness is artillery and heavy cavalry who could charge them from the flank or the rear.

The Royal Welch Fusiliers were founded in 1689. At this time they weren’t known as the Fusiliers: this title was not bestowed upon them until 1702. A further addition was to follow after the War of Spanish Succession in 1713, when they became the Royal Welch Fusiliers. This was a variation of “Welsh” used at the time. Later members of the regiment would earn 14 Victoria Crosses (the highest British award for gallantry) and can count famous servicemen and poets Siegfried Sassoon and Robert Graves amongst their number.
