The Medieval Flail
is not as varied as the Mace but it did have some interesting variations.
 The basic concept is a heavy weight that is attached to the end of a handle by a chain.
When this is swung it generates enormous force -much more force than the Mace could deliver.
It also had the added advantage of being able to reach over or around armor and shields.

armored opponent while a Falchio was essentially a battlefield weapon of the conscripted peasantry

The Halberd Axe an axe mounted on the end of a large spear. So in effect it is a melding of two different weapons -
 the axe and the spear but it wasn't used for throwing like the spear, just for thrusting.

It was an extremely effective weapon because it was very versatile.
The spear point could be used to keep distance from the enemy and made it capable for foot effective attack mounted soldiers.
The slicing axe blade could cause vicious damage to armor because the halberd could generate very powerful slices with long swings.
