They are quite different.
1) Mace does not have parry, so the only defence for macemen will be their shields thus making them less survivable (although weapon parry will not help in many cases, for example spears/arrows can not be parried with weapons anyway) 2) On the other hand mace has a chance to "stun" which will cause enemy to skip his attack... In certain scenarios this can be very devastating for example against certain heavy armoured units - basically macemen can surround a knight and bash him to death through his armour, swordsmen would have to strip the armour first giving him plenty of time to deal damage.. In general I would say swordsmen are a safer choice as they live longer in battle, but macemen can be extremely fun...
