Heroes: I wouldn't take any armour on anyone. It's too easily negated. Also, you should really be maxing out on heroes -- they're what make you money.

Captain: I dislike great weapons in MH -- always striking last is too much of a disadvantage.

Marksmen: I don't think marksmen can take pistols, can they?

The champion and the youngblood look pretty good to me, though... I'm fond of halberds, even though a lot of people seem to dislike them.

Marksmen CAN take pistols, but I would prefer crossbows or long bows on them. With their extra BS and a long range weapon they will usually be hitting on at least 4+. With pistols and a mace, they are equipped for close combat, but, frankly, you'd be better off with more swordsmen.

Skip the warriors and go all marksmen. Warriors are a last resort with this warband.. fill up on swordsmen and marksmen.

With longbows and a BS increase Marksmen will be your bread and butter.
Crossbows on these guys will keep folks in hiding as well.

Give bows to all your heroes for the option of a shot if it's there.

Lose all armor since it gets negated so easily and pistols are an expensive waste.

You should also get X2 swords on all your swordsmen for the extra attack w/ bonus.

ALWAYS fill up on heroes from the start to help with cash and to give them the max number of games to get Exp.
