Eusdria regular troops tend to adopt the heaviest armour they can find, and use traditional Eusdrian weaponry.
The most common form of armour is a mix of chain and plate, but full chain mail is used by medium cavalry units. Bowmen and Crossbowmen use chain shirts, though Dwarven elite units use chain and plate.
Both Infantry and Cavalry units use the battle-axe and the bastard sword as main weapons.
Militiamen are called to arms only in case of external attacks, and arm themselves with whatever weapons and armour they can find, which often means padded armour and a battle-axe, spear, or bastard sword.

The knightly orders and military companies make up more than a quarter of the regular army:
