    Default Spear or sword?

    I'm having some difficulty deciding how to arm the Thespian Hoplites. Should they have swords? or should they be the standard hoplite with a 7-foot spear?

    here are two images to aid your decision:

    thinking about it, the best option is a combo between spear and sword...but not that too long spear!!!it would be better one a little bit short

    hm, i guess a combo would be cool, although that is the accurate length gor the dora.

    Also, do you think they should be mercenaries or not?

    ok so I suggest the combo, one quest: did you take these thespians from kla┤s skin pack? cause I remember from his first pack that the spears were like this.

    I recommend you to reduce their sizes

    Voted sword, probably ahistorical but looks cooler somehow.
