Half-Orc Unit

Rotwk added another stat for Axe-damage. For now Isengard faction has no unit which might use this new kind of attack.

My proposition is a Half-Orc unit.
Half-Orcs are are mixed rabble of Men and Orcs especially known to be in service of Saruman during the War of the Ring. Although their origins were probably similar to Uruk-Hai, they're not the same thing.
In lore Half-Orc units were tough and fast moving warriors armed with Axes (probably two-handed axes as they carried no shields) which teared apart enemy units they were commanded to face. They were elite soldiers as they didn't need any support to acomplish their task during the Battle at the Fords of Isen which was to kill Theodred who stood ground with his unit on the small isle upon the fords.

Half-Orcs would deal Axe-damage which could be stronger then Uruk-Hai but less then the berserker (as berserker Is a one character unit). These new units could have leather (weaker the upgraded Uruk-Hai) armor as they quickly approached Theodred's group and weren't stopped by any Rohirrim unit before they reached their goal.
In design they might be something between Uruk-Hai and Dunlending but of course that all depends on the artist who will surely have a great vision on this.
