So assume chaos knights, 4+ chaos armor, 2+ barded steed, and 1+ for a shield.
That makes 1+ on their armor save, 1 being an auto fail of course. Now, I know they cannot make a parry save because they are cavalry. But, is the +1 from the shield applicable in close combat if they are using a one handed weapon? I know it is applicable for arrow fire etc., but if they cannot make a parry save on horseback in close combat, can they still get the bonus to their armor if they are not wielding lances, a two handed weapon?
Yes, you get the shield bonus in close combat when mounted. Also, a lance is not a 2 handed weapon.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Oh ok cool. Thanks!
