The Swordsman is a very cheap defensive unit with a low movement speed due to it's heavy armor. Its strength is defending against ranged unit, which is useful when fighting the next available unit to most players - the Slinger. It's weakness is attacking, as it has the lowest attack of all the units (aside from the Colony Ship). While farming with Swordsmen is possible, it is the weakest of the ground units for that purpose.
Each ruler begins the game with six Swordsmen to assure the defense of their city.
