    You shouldn't be using the spearmen without upgrades, or best just dont bother with them, the berchide axemen get bonus vs armour and since most cavavlry used in MP has heavy armour...

    I recall there being a Horse archer, basically slightly hyped up boyar sons, the any spare should be spent on Upgrades for the musketeers, Berchide and/or Tsar guard (1 silver cherlon for russian commander is really enough)

    if i take out the spearmen ill be lacking in infantry though with only 4 heavy + 3 gunners. also my general is NOT getting a silver bar he costs 1990 with it. ill probably use the better horse archers though but then i get less guys. whats better in multiplayer quality or quantity

    Oh sorry when you said: Shiny silver one, i thought you had one silver cherlon, ahh, sorry

    Well quality is usually better, mainly because having a massive number of peasent and little else gets you slaughtered, unless you have a holy cross/bell tower thingy then they get a large moral boost, especially if you eqaully upgrade them, but since your russia, you should stick to quality

    Useful vs rushers ok, but All those "modern" 1.3 armies are like rushing with missiles, I mean 3 peasant xbows...
    But it works in 1.3 quite well, you have to realize that its the closest to rushing you can get.
    I dont say its a bad army, in 1.3 I think its good, but I insult 1.3 "modern" armies.

    i found a list i like and so far have been winning almost all my games.

    3 Dvor calvalry- 1 of em is general
    3 Boyar sons- 1 helps flank 2 help front when in combat
    3 Cossack musketeers- i like these gunners their good
    exp upgrade 4 Berdiche axemen- main soldiers
    exp upgrade 4 Woodsmen- also help with stuff


    another list i use is this:
    3 Dvor calvalry- 1 general
    3 Cossack calvalry- shoot n run
    4 Cossack musketeers- they shoot things up and are decent in melee
    4 Berdiche axemen- footsoldiers
    1 woodsmen- leftover points

    another i found good is this one:
    1 exp upgrade Dvor calvalry- general
    3 Dvor calvalry
    4 Boyar sons
    2 Dismounted boyar sons
    4 exp upgrade Berdiche axemen
    4 exp upgrade Woodsmen


    My most effective ones have been # 2 and # 1 and ive won a bunch with those.
