Is there any advantage in taking a spear (Cavalry) over a lance...? As far as I know they are the same points and the lance gives +2 strength on the charge versus the spears +1 strength on the charge. Thanks.

typically, spears and lances are not availavble to the same units (correct me if there are any) Spears are usually given to light cavalry, while lances are a heavy cavalry weapon, which makes sense.
As far as the rules go, lances are superior, and there is no advantage that spears have over lances.
Thanks, you've pretty much answered my question.
Thanks again! :yes:
always pick the lance. you could take a spear for a caracter on foot, BUT HELL why should you?
i don't know why caracters have the spear option everybody takes either lances or magical weapons (if they are smart:sleep: )
