|Number of Armies||1|
|Represented By||Foot Soldier|
The Infantry unit is the basic unit of Risk, representing 1 army.
Infantry units are used at the start of the game, when players claim territories, and tend to be used the most in a game of Risk.
1 or 2 armies are usually set up in the middle of a player's Connected Empire, while a larger number of armies are found on the edges for heavy defence or to invade. However, this is not always the case.
