Longbow men are some of the best basic missile units in the game and can be upgraded to be even better, as well as dealing fire damage. But their cost is pretty high and the Flaming Arrows research won't be arriving any time early game. In large numbers they by themselves will decimate just about everything, but having a bunch of melee units to act as a mobile bulwark certainly will help them to survive longer.
