Description

The Bowmaker turns raw Pinewood from the Pinewood Cutter into Bows. These Bows are then used at the Barracks to create Bowmen.

It is wise to get an upgraded hut placed as soon as you can and allow Bows to pile up over a period of time.

You won't use a huge amout of Bows in the game and are later mostly superceeded by the Longbow at various times.

Bowmen are handy as cheaper cannonfodder compared to losing Longbowmen and some battles versus Deserter Longbowmen really benefit from a wave of expendible archers.
