A player's army is used against either the goblins on the campaign map, or against other players in order to win Trophies and loot Gold and Elixir - this is called raiding. There are three main parts to an army: troops, heroes and spells.
Troops are created in Barracks and are stored in Army Camps. In the Home Village, there are nineteen different types of troops, twelve of which require Elixir and are trained in the normal Barracks; the other seven require Dark Elixir and are trained in the Dark Barracks. In the Builder Base, there are ten different types of troops; they are trained in the Builder Barracks.
Heroes are immortal units that are reusable but require time to regenerate their health when it is lost. They are summoned whenever their respective Altar is constructed or rebuilt. In the Home Village, there are three Hero troops; two use Dark Elixir while the other uses Elixir. In the Builder Base, there is one Hero troop, namely the Battle Machine.
Spells are created and stored in the Spell Factory. They only appear in the Home Village. There are ten different spells, six of which require Elixir and are brewed in the Spell Factory; the other four require Dark Elixir and are brewed in the Dark Spell Factory.
