I wait for the attacks, and block, countering as their attacks are blocked, telling my followers to do the same.

"attack" and "block" are very general terms, i mean there is a guy rushing at you with an axe ready to take your head

Sorry, it's difficult to give really specific details about what I want to do in a fight when I get "His hand is going for his axe" kinds of things. The "going for my head" helps a little, but do you want me to say "I do a double back flip to dodge the counter parry maneuver while swinging from a nearby branch and then jumping down on the man, stabbing the seaxe into his face, two inches below his left nostil" ? Sorry, I have to be kind of vague to fit the situation when I don't actually see what's going on :P

I block the incoming attack for my head with my seaxe, then countering afterwards aiming for his neck. I tell the villagers to aim for vital areas, like the throat, heart, stomach, etc.

just a general strategy for attacks, anywho you block with your dagger, but aiming for neck left your gun open for him to knee, which doubles you over


the other men are aiming more specifically, but one is hit by a club and KO'ed, another gets a stab on an Unright, smashing his arm
