This is my view also. The orlanthi need skirmishers, in addition to their heavy infantry. The hunters of the clan (and tribe) support with bows, slings and javelins, and young boys (and vingans) harass the enemy with slings and darts.
The Greek hoplite armies had young boys doing much the same. Unarmored, they were too fast to catch by the enemy hoplites, and forced them to keep their shields high, tiring themselves (and skoring occasional kills and woundings)
I think I think... Therefore I think I am.
