    Equipping knights

    What do you think is the best combo for empire knights. I think great weapons due to there low initative, they wont be striking first much.

    Except Knights will often be getting the charge, which means they strike first. Why not have +2 Strength and +1 defense when you charge? Greatweapons only give you +1 strength which is a huge difference.

    There really is never any point in giving knights great weapons now- unless its for fluff reasons- the only way you can make g/wpn knights effective now is to make them inner circle, but then its a better option to do this to lance wielding knights.

    I did not know great weapons were just +1 S when mounted or i would of gone for lance and shield.

    EDIT: Fixed the poll to reflect the change expressed in your post. I'm assuming you were the one vote for Great Weapons . -Spector

    Knights should always get the shield, besides, they are much better suited to shielding infantry blocks (no one expects that your 3 units of 5 knights with usicians serve as screens for those big chunks of swordsmen), than charging into combet swinging hammers.:ballon:
    Asking for suggestions without knowing what you're planning on doing is like asking a blind man what color shirt matches your eyes.

    Agreed. I don't see why anyone would take them. Only +1S, and effectively a -1AS. In subsequent rounds, their swords do fine. Trust me.
