The trick to getting an army going it starting small, Under 25 swadian recruits to start. Start upgrading them into man at arms and then to knights. Just go easy and take small fights until you start getting more than 2-3 man at arms, then its just mowing the lawn with your enemies bodies. Enjoy!

let your fancy knights face my Rhodocks spearmen, and to add more fun with some sharpshooters the best crossbowmen in the land.

ⵄⴰⴱⴷ ⵚⴰⵎⴰⴷ ⴰⵊⴹⴰⵔ. this guy has no idea how to even make a good army.
The point is that axes are worse than jarids in terms of damage usually, but the destroying shield feat of the axes is usually also worthy... have you tried those nords against the rodhok champs? In floris rhodok I generrally go with the crossbowmen and drop the footmen cause the crossbows dont need anything in skillpoints and you basically gt the same guy, but with a crossbow as secondary instead of a pike xD The most OP range troop ive seen was in Fantasy Calradia, the rifle dwarfes xD But there you can also use magic, so... is not anywhere near balanced xD

I like the Swadian Knights, they truly are beasts on battlefield, though they're not perfect. They have their cons too, like the fact that you really need a plain field for them to be effective (if you have the bad luck to get into a hill/mountain field in a battle like near Ruvar while hunting sea raiders you're screwed) and they're quite expensive (not as expensive as Mercenary Cavalry but still expensive). For cavalry I usually look for bandits/taiga bandits/sea raiders etc. that have Manhunters as prisoners, I hire the prisoners and make them into Slaver Chiefs. Those guys are true money makers, you just go hunt sea raiders and taiga bandits, let the slaver chiefs do their jobs and knock unconscious the living shit out of them, then you sell them at Slave Traders. This way you can easily get like 100k denars in like 150 days and also have high quality gear for you and your companions. I also like to send every companion I can get to get me right to rule points because that way I can get to like 50 points and when you start your own kingdom you'll not be at war with everybody. After you start your kingdom you need to take it easier on recruiting cavalry and start looking for troops to garrison your towns&castles and troops for taking other towns&castles. Best troops for garrison in my opinion are the Rhodok Sharpshooters. Cheap and effective, put 200 of them in your town and you'll never lose it. You can also use them to siege castles, but they're not exceptional at close combat (even though they're quite good at it compared to archery units that use bows). For storming castles I choose either the Huscarls (they're beasts too, but it takes a lot of time to get them) or the Rhodok Sergents (they're very good at close combat and you can use them on battlefields too, thought I believe they don't have the HP and Armor as big as the Huscarls, they do have polearms and I honestly don't know how they manage to do it but in close combat they swing those goddamn glaives up and down and give a shitload of damage; they also have board shields which are very good while you're attacking a castle). Usually I go for a maximum of 120 cavalry (since I don't get to have parties bigger than 150), 200 sharpshooters and 150 rhodok sergents or nord huscarls garrisoned in towns. P.S.: Thanks for reading this, I know it's long and boring and most likely everyone does the things I just said :D

Rhodoks have longer spears / voulges by default sometimes. Big factor in keeping cavalry at range and holding them in one place.

YUP!!! Cause thats the best unit of each type... specially using Floris

+caleb boam Yeah but whenever I used Vaiger archers they got fucked in Sieges, the Rhodock Sharpshooters are hands down the best in Siege Defenses/Attacks. At least from my experience they are.

Some Glitch happens where I attacked a bandit camp and it spawned hundreds upon hundreds of bandits, and It only spawned six of my Swadian Knights. We killed hundreds before we went down.
