So I've been looking around for both these things and using Wikipedia has helped a lot...now I need more help from people who can probably help me figure things out. So here we have a basic Spearmen and here are some of my questions for him. A. What type of shield do you think would work best? Scutum, Heater shield, Kite shield? B. Back up weapon? Short Sword, Dagger, Flanged mace? C. Any ranged? Javelins? darts? Slings? D. Armor? Jack of Plates(bronze, Iron, steel?) Cuirass(bronze, iron, steel?) E. What would change with "heavy" Spearmen?
