0006101: Military dwarves won't pickup helmets and high boots
Basically what it says above; I can't get my dwarves to pick up their equipment. They'll equip everything except high boots and helms.
- Define a uniform with all steel equipment (breastplate, greaves, high boots, gauntlets, helm, shield, indiv. choice weapon)
- Create a squad, assign the aforementioned uniform to the squad

Dwarves will pick up everything but boots and helms.
I did manage to get one squad to equip the proper equipment eventually; but I'm not sure what the heck I did. It was some combination of assigning and un-assigning them to train at my weapon-rack based barracks. I have a second squad (intended to be marksdwarves) exhibiting the same behavior now, and the previous fidgeting isn't yielding any results.
No tags attached.
