Royal Scutari are the Spanish unique Heavy Infantry of the Medieval Age.png Medieval Age that replaces the standard Pikemen.


Compared to Pikemen, Royal Scutari are statistically identical, but they do +10% damage against Ranged Cavalry, and +80% damage against Heavy Cavalry and Light Cavalry, which stacks with the Heavy Infantry's standard bonuses against cavalry units, putting them at a far greater advantage against cavalry than the already capable Pikemen.


  • Scutari is a plural form of Scutarius, which means "shield-bearer" in Latin, and refers in particular to the scutum, a large oblong, curved shield used by the Celto-Iberian heavy infantry, the same the Legions themselves are known for, and adopted from Celtic peoples in the first place.
