i just want to double check about this
if i had a model using a great weapon for eg a dwarf would he still get his +1 save for having the shield i know he wont get one for having the hand weapon/sheild combo but will he have the bones for having it?

[16:19] <@Alzer> Arky's right though
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> I know he is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> He usually is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> Sometimes it's intentional.
[00:01] <+zubus> i love you, ya skirt wearin nothern monkey! ^_^
nope, you've got to chose in the first round of combat if you use your shield with some other single handed weapon, or if you use your great weapon.
so, you don't get the +1 save if you use a great weapon.
By the look of this post, rule wise you can equipt a sheild and GW right? or is that against the rules?
(yes very noobish question, dont laught <_< )
I had this long signature made up, but I didnt like it...
Yes, you can equip great weapon troops with shields. They will then have the +1 save against missile fire and the option of using hand weapon and shield instead of great weapon.
For example, a unit of swarf warriors with heavy armour and great weapons have a 5+ save. Given shields, they now have a 4+ save against missile fire and a 5+ save in CC, they also have the oprion of using hand weapons and shields in close combat, giving them a 3+ save, they cannot use their great weapons to do this.
Note: If you want to switch weapons, do so in the first round of combat, because you cannot switch untill the combat is finished.
I kill two dwarves in the morning, I kill two dwarves at night. I kill two dwarves in the afternoon, and then I feel allright. I kill two dwarves in time of peace, and two in time of war. I kill two dwarves before I kill two dwarves, and then I kill two more.
