So what is the advantage of one over the other?
It seems that spears should always be chosen if given the choice because the rank bonus. other than that I don't see why you would go hand weapon. However the BRB makes it seems as only a hand weapon grants a parry save. So that would mean a spearmen with a shield would get a 6+ armor save but no parry? I'm just asking because it seems hard to not chose a spear over a hw and with no parry that would give a good reason.
