    Ok, let's go with another wip roster, food for thoughts (based on my guides):

    Lucht Tighe
    Unit Category: Retainers.
    Unit Role: Medium cavalry (Brawler) and bodyguard.

    Marcṡluag
    Unit Category: Household Nobles.
    Unit Role: Medium cavalry (Charger)

    Gilli na Sluag
    Unit Category: Men-at-Arms or Regulars (To discuss)
    Unit Role:Cavalry (To discuss)

    Marcra
    Unit Category: Regulars.
    Unit Role:Light Cavalry (To discuss)

    SaighdeoirÝ
    Unit Category: Warrior Levies.
    Unit Role:Archers (skirmishers)

    Ceithernn
    Unit Category: Warrior Levies.
    Unit Role:Light Infantry (Swordsmen)

    Ceithernn Javelinmen (Requires improved name)
    Unit Category: Warrior Levies.
    Unit Role:Light Infantry (Javelinmen)

    Ceithernn Spearmen (Requires improved name)
    Unit Category: Warrior Levies.
    Unit Role:Light Infantry (spearmen)

    Ceithernn Professional (Requires improved name)
    Unit Category: Regulars.
    Unit Role: To discuss.

    To discussion

    Gilli na Sluag are the squires and servant boys, therefore they may fall into the Men-at-Arms category unless said otherwise. For their role, in which way those men were fighting? Javelin cavalry perhaps?

    Marcra are Irish moutned soldiers, often mercs. Which fighting style they would have? Spear and then switch to swords and axes in melee?

    And the more professional footmen, which weapon style they would use? Glaive, one-handed weapons?

    This list looks good, but your missing a two - handed axe unit and im not talking about gallowglass. Im pretty sure the two handed axe was extensively use from peasent to noble alike.
    Alse the "Macra" Should indeed use spears then switch to sword and axes. They used the spear overhand but i dont think you can represent that in this game

    A good hand shake will be enough.
    There's indeed the animation in there so it will be possible to represent the overhanded spear.

    Also, for the pleasure of Ireland, you will be able to recruit and make your own Irish Galloglaigh but the Irish faction will have to meet specific conditions. will give you more information when we will show the Britannia campaign preview (which may happens soon ).

    Interesting, the arms and armors are more 14th-15th century but still good reference!
