Warrior Smiths are your only national access to Air magic and Water magic.

Inept Researcher (2)
Unlike Warrior Smiths, Shamans are also 1, have a research malus of 2,
and cost 20 more gold than your Warrior Smiths. Even though they have a research malus making them
less efficient researchers for their turn cost and upfront gold cost
they are sacred making them more efficient researchers in terms of upkeep
than Warrior Smiths. As battle mages they tend to be outshown by Warrior Smiths,
however the Shaman's saving grace is stealth, and the ability to provide mage support to stealthy armies can be invaluable.

Slow to Recruit
Antlered Shamans are EA Ulm's biggest and most powerful mages with 4.1 magic paths on average.
They cost 220g, are slow to recruit, and capital only. As Ulm's most reliable Nature 2, the Antlered Shaman
will often act as a stealthy support mage for Ulm's armies, dropping nature buffs such as Wooden Warriors
and putting up spells like Howl.

Troops

FIXME description of the workhorse options, for the sake of sanity better skip the clearly subpar and generic stuff (common indie like units with no gimmicks), merge units into a single description entry if functionally similar battle roles with only minor differences in gear.
