Snakemen had heads like a cobra and scaly, humanoid bodies, as well as tails.
Snakemen's serpentine heads had venomous bites and their spears were coated in powerful toxins. Close combat with them was to be avoided as much as possible. While their scales provided some protection, they were not hard enough to deflect metal weapons.
Although they might be skilled with their tails, one could simply consider them another weapon as their extension to fighting foes. In addition, they also had the advantage at night due to their ophidian sensory organs.
However, Snakemen seem to despise cold objects, so they would not even bother using metal armor and other such items because of it. 
- Snakemen were considered to be close relatives to the lizardmen.
- The Snakemen in the Demi-Human Army served as spearmen during the Siege of Loyts.
- One Snakeman existed two hundred years ago as a member of the Mercenary Pathfinders.
