A Peasant is the builder-unit and only foot-soldier unit for Rohan in The Battle for Middle-earth. They are effective when fighting other infantry or charging enemy ranged troops, but will tend to perish quickly against the ranged troops' arrows or enemy cavalry.
Their main function is to repair Rohan's buildings.
Recruited from: Farm
Command points taken: 10
Amount per unit: 10
In BFME 2 Patch 1.06 Edit
In The Battle for Middle-earth II, peasants are available in Patch 1.06. For the faction Elves, Peasants can be recruited from Inns as swordsmen. They cannot be upgraded in any way. Peasants are strong against buildings, although against some troops they can hold somewhat effectively. As they are cheap and easy to recruit, making a mob of several battalions of peasants can actually be effective.
