Do you think it’s better a lot of ’em not so well equipped, or less man but better gear?

Sorry for long comment and I forgot to answer directly to this.
I think it’s best to get to 12 as soon as possible provided you have at least some sort of armor and weapons/shields for them. Even if they just stand in the back for the first rounds you can use them to surround breaking enemies or use them to run down archers once the rest is engaged.
