For armament, short sword, spear, dagger, bow and bulwarks are the standard pieces of equipment of the soldier. But long or bastard sword, short shield or buckler, flail and else, are so many weapons sometimes found in the ranks of the various legions of the Black Surge, if the individual can show that he is as able alone and in team on formation or not with his weapon.
All of those equipment coming once again from the forges of Thermitia [WIP]
