Can you use shields with spears and close combat? If so, do you forego the usual +1 bonus for fighting with a shield and hand weapon in CC? Or are spears like two-handed weapons that you can't use a shield with?
You can use a shield whilest using a spear as it is not named as being two-handed, the only rule ataining to a spear is that they can fight in two ranks. So you get the +1 for the shield but can't claim the extra +1 for HW & S as the spear isn't a hand weapon.
