- Which weapons we think look best
- Whether we're going for a defensive stance (spears)
- Or against armoured foes (halberds)
But what to do with them?
With half the army forming a gunline, my view here is to position them with other combat elements as far forward as possible. Hold them in place until a charge is viable. By this time the shooting elements will have weakened the opposition. Charge in with as much support as possible and do your darndest to roll well!
