Yes, turns out that equipping your character with a non-proficiency weapon is just a case of hitting 'Equip' as usual. No drama. Wizard with a battleaxe? No problem.
You may not be as good with it as a trained class but, if the point is to make your character feel closer to your own vision, losing that +2 (it increases later) is no great hardship.
