Rivendell Spearmen (Sindarin: Eithyr Imladris) are the pikemen for the Imladris faction. Like the rest of Imladris' units, they come in a battalion of 5 and can make use of two abilities once the proper research has been completed.

Rivendell Spearmen in the Fellowship of the Ring movie.

Abilities
