I have a unit of these bad boys in my Norse-Irish army for Field of Glory, as a component in a Viking ally, anti-cavalry wing. For Field of Glory, they are rated as Heavy Foot, Superior, Armored, Offensive Spear. I took them as Offensive Spear for that weapons ability to stand up to cavalry, and since for now at least, heavy weapons are very ineffective against charging cavalry. I don't view this weapon choice as inaccurate, since in my opinion, the weapon definitions in Field of Glory are not meant as literal descriptions, but more for the purposes of establishing troop type and weapon interactions. In order to get the huscarls to stand up effectively in shield wall against a cavalry charge, which they did historically (e.g. the failed Norman cavalry charge at Hastings), then this is how they need to be defined.
Here is a photo of my just completed huscarl unit, deployed in a typical formation for Field of Glory:
There are eight stands in the unit, deployed with three stands in the first two ranks and two in the last. This allows the unit to lose up to two stands, and still gain the tactical advantage of spear fighting in at least two ranks. The unit can also be deployed four wide, as in the photo below, in order to cover more ground when protecting a flank:
And finally, a more close-up shot:
The figures are 15mm scale, as manufactured by Museum Miniatures. I think they are pretty decent sculpts, although unfortunately in a single pose. I got them for a very economical price though, during a show special offered by Silver Eagle Wargame Supplies during the Field of Glory US Open - only $2.50 for a pack of eight figures. I hope to get them seeing action on the tabletop soon.
