Inspires Friendly Units

The Carnute Cingetos (Kin-jet-os; "Marching Ones") are the warriors of the Carnutes, 'druidic' warriors from Aulercia. Their skill is tremendous, as is their bravery. They are not plentiful, they are expensive, and of small number. However, their inspiring appearance, a product of their fine armor, with horned helmets, urges on their fellows, and their skill in combat makes them useful against other heavy infantry. They are disciplined, and useful for numerous battlefield roles; able to fill in for a few times their own number if needed, making them a fine reserve as well as exemplerary shock troop.

Historically, the Carnutes were devoted followers of the horned god, Cernunnos. Their bravery would be unquestionable, and skill at arms most surely superb. They would be armed and outfitted in the best equipment available. They were also charged with defending the "Great Gallic Council" where Celts tried to solve their internal grievances diplomatically; a job they likely took with great severity and pride. They defend the 'legal' rulers of Gaul, the Aedui, and were sworn enemies of their opposition; as such, in no case would they have been employed by the most dissident enemies of the Aedui, the Arverni alliance.
