Sons of Scotland
From Ex illis wiki
The Sons of Scotland serve William Wallace. They are warriors who fought alongside the Scottish hero at the Battle of Sruighlea where they defeated the English troops led by John de Warenne. Since then, they remain loyal to their commander who has been able to free them from Edward I’s yoke.
Even if they are not as well-trained as their English enemies, Wallace’s warriors are still very brave and audacious men who are ready to lose their life for their country’s independence. The Sons of Scotland’s army is mainly composed of peasants armed with all kinds of tools. So, despite the presence of some knights, mainly lords of the gentry who joined the group after the Battle of Sruighlea, those troops are particularly undisciplined.
For a few decades, the Sons of Scotland have nourished a bitter hatred toward Englishmen who try to steal their freedom. It is not difficult to push them on the battlefield when they are facing their lifelong enemies. But, in 1309, Wallace’s task is going to be more complicated since his troops will have to face opponents of the same origins than them. Lately, he has allied with John Red Comyn to submit Robert Bruce who is rebelling against the Riaghladair Alba’s regency. He is now marching on the north with a powerful army to take the Scottish Crown by means of arms. Before the clash, Wallace shall prepare the Sons of Scotland for the confrontation with men who, for most of them, have fought at their side against the English.
The Sons of Scotland faction is a very selective one. It is Celtic to the core and has a low tolerance for English troops. When deciding whether or not to promote Wallace to army General, one should consider the amount of lowborn units his army contains. The already expensive William Wallace is not cheap to rise to the rank of General, but he will transform a very ordinary peasant army into a force of hardy veterans.
