The peasants are the basic infantry of the Holy Griffin Empire. Though weak and poorly trained, they are numerous. Peasants are an important source of revenue for their masters.
The peasant is the weakest of all creatures in Heroes of Might and Magic V. Instead of deploying them on the battlefield, it's better to take advantage of their Taxpayer ability and keep in the town garrison to be later trained into archer or footmen. In early games, they work fine at guarding the archer.
Taxpayer - Every day the hero gets as many units of gold as there are creatures with this ability in all their armies and castles.
