Is it that they don't have a "tzompantli" to hang all the skulls on?

Well I was going to guess that their religion doesn't play a large role in their gameplay...even in AoC the Aztecs had very strong Priests - they were great at converting etc. In AoE3 you use the priests but they just do dances all day long, they don't play a really active role in battle /etc.

Oh cool I got one.

Ok then why shouldn't the French have the same type of skirmishers like other civs and the Brits have them?

Adder, I really don't understand your question.

Well basically look at the type of units the French and British armies fought with and what was different about the French Voltigeur and other nations skirmishers.

If you want at hint look at how the armies of France, Portugal and Britain fought during the Peninsula war.

The French deployed the Voltigeurs as advance sharpshooters... they sent them in front of their army to shoot down enemies before they got within range. They were very bad at hand to hand combat but were some of the best sharpshooters in Europe. The term Tirailleurs is the French word for "sharpshooters."

The British don't have skirmishers because they generally believed in open warfare with lines of musketeers...they never employed guerrilla fighters or used hit and run tactics. That was characteristic of their strategy in the revolutionary war, where revolutionaries fired at British troops from the forest and hid behind trees and the British continued marching, preferring to engage in open field battles.

I'm basing this off of what I know about the Revolution and the Wikipedia entry for Voltigeur.
