Actually, the biggest threat is always the leaders.  In our game the leaders are
usually the Dukes, etc.; remove them and the order to attack the fort will be
delayed, the recognition of our strategy will be impeded, the unit cohesiveness
will be effected, etc.  Killing the enemy archers is very useful but of lesser
importance then destroying their command structure.  If there are no obvious
leaders target where you are then kill the spears both the 9 ft ones and the
15-200 ft ones :-)
