This is my first attempt at the villager swarm after watching hope's recorded game example.
I manage to get up to max houses, but a big raid takes out a number of villagers. After failing to herd effectively i struggle for food until i get a footing and turn on the pwnage.
Not the best example of this as i play badly and am quite nooby. His unit choice was pretty dumb too considering i had no choice but to make muskets to fight his cav.
This is just another example for people to see the prospective power of this strategy...
