Summary0005812: Bigger than average dwarves refuse to equip big weapons
Description [^] implies bigger dwarves can equip the larger weapons in adventure mode, but dwarves refuse to do so in fortress mode. This makes the Pikedwarf skill impossible to train in fortress mode. Goblins, who are the same size as dwarves, have no problem equipping these items when they invade. Also, Dwarves seem to refuse to use Longswords 1 handed but that may have just been them being too lazy to pick up a shield.
Steps To Reproduceeither trade for or kill some foreign units for two handed swords, halberds, pikes, Mauls, or Great axes, than try to make a dwarf equip one.

testing has shown that appearance modifiers broadness and height, while changing the overall size of a dwarf, aren't taken into account when checking if weapons can or cannot be used. only the base average body size (60000 for adult dwarves) is used. [^]
