EDIT: sorry!
fav. weapon is crowssbow!(not in lego)[/quote]

The crossbow is unefficient when compared to the English war bow (Longbow)

Definitely the AR-7 sniper's bow with Rune-sight telescopic sight and Dagpul Elfhair bowstring.

Or a lightsaber. An elegant weapon for a more civilized age.

I would use a hand-and-a-half sword, a longbow, and a shield.

There are plenty that are worthy for different reasons, but two of the most evocative are the good ole longsword and the katana. The longbow also gets a nod since The White Company is one of my all-time fav books.

WW2 combat engineers had to build bridges, clear mines/obstacles, etc while under machinegun fire (or worse). I may be a bit biased considering one of my grandfathers was a combat engineer in North Africa, Sicily, and Italy, but I think they had it a little worse than Medieval engineers :P

Depends on the weapon that I'm fighting against. It's an enemy fighting with a or several daggers, then a battleaxe. Longsword, I'd use a flail. Against a longbow, I'd use a longbow. Against a crossbow, I'd use a longbow. Against a flail, I'd use throwing knives. Spear, I'd use a pike and dagger. Pike, I'd use a longbow.

The goedendag: a huge club with big spike at the top -- a vicious weapon that looks like it could knock down a horse and punch holes in a knight's armor like can of juice. Mostly I like the irony of the name -- it means "Good day" in Dutch.

Throndor that is quite a lot of weapons you would have to carry. I would hate to be your squire.

Hand-and-a-half sword/longsword all the way!
When I've fought/played with weapons I always use a hand-and-a-half sword, though as I'm growing I reckon I'll use a longsword one day ;)
Longbows are cool, as are spear sand halberds. There's something about being skilled with a bow that's amazing :)

Good Question! I think I would use the longbow for sure but also a hand and a half sword as well.
I actually own 2 hand and a half training swords. :eyebrows: So you better watch out! :sly:
