Archers and marksmen are lightly armored troops armed with crossbows for ranged attacks and daggers for light hand-to-hand fighting. Marksmen can get off two shots in each ranged attack.
The archer is very useful as the basic ranged unit of the Castle, doing decent damage. Sending Heroes out with some archers for damage and pikemen for protection will allow them to capture mines early in the game.
It should still be one of the first units to be upgraded - the extra shot will double its potential damage.
