Chods are a lightly armored but very versatile unit with precursor javelins and dogs, hiding in woods and attacking unexpectedly then redrawing. They are equipped with the Shepherd’s axe, also known as the cekanka as well as small shields.
To quote "It´s a Giraffe" : "A few sources say that the Bohemian soldiers would paint their faces black with either mud or clay before the battle, and would act in combat as if they weren’t “human” (The Italians said this. This is most likely due to the Czechs’ trace pagan ancestry, especially from a non-Bohemian perspective). Some of the soldiers were, indeed, criminals. The death sentence could be fulfilled by servitude to the king. And being cut down for your country was probably seen as a more honorable death than the gallows or the chopping block "
