I have heard often that in close combat a model with a shield adds a further +1 to their armour save, however when looking in the rulebook I can't find where it says this, is this still the case, so for example a chaos warrior with shield would have a 3+ save out of combat, and 2+ save in combat. Thanks in advance.
Check page 43 of the BRB, it's on top of the page, under "Shields".
Also, you *might* be confused with the "Parry Save". Check page 88, under "Hand weapons and Shields". In 8th edition, having a shield and a HW does NOT improve the Armour Save by one point; instead, it provides a 6+ Ward Save.
Check both references and you should be clear. Hope it helps !
Thanks for the clear up and it now all makes sense.
