Militia Men (MM) and Swordsmen in combination can be very effective at clearing an enemies wall defenses. The use of MM means that you can replace them faster than other troops you might use to clear Traps/XBows. Good results on a full level 9 wall are had with an attack of 150k MM and 35K Swordsmen. This will remove the XBows and traps. It will also defeat a small force that has been set to defend, say 15k archers, 5k Heavy Cav (HC), and the usual assortment of troops one would see in a smaller player's defensive setup. In the scenario mentioned above above, losses were 48k MM and 20K Swords.
A followup wave of HC will remove Spikes. Then follow with an attack force that includes Supply Wagons to haul off the remaining plunder.
