Question Morning star

morning star 2. A weapon resembling the combination of a flail and a mace.

Would "bola de púas" work fine as a translation for "morning star" in the context of medieval fighting?

Or is there a better term?

Wiki lo traduce lo más literalmente posible: http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucero_del_alba_%28arma%29

¿Qué te parece maza de púas?

Bueno, claro, "morning star" tiene otras acepciones y "lucero del alba" referido a "Venus" es correcto.

Lo de "maza de púas" creo que suena mejor que la "bola"... Gracias.

Yo también lo traduciría como maza de púas. "lucero del alba" suena demasiado moderno.
sino, Mangual o látigo de armas, aunque no sea exacto
