in the Empire codex, there's a magic armour that's listed as a helm, and can be combined with other equipment normaly. does that mean it's just a fancy type of armour and can only be improved via a shield or sword/shield combo. or something that can be stacked with say, full plate.
that's the thing about perfection, it can only get worse.
well i'm only knowledgeable in armour in the real world. But from logic
yes I would say helms count as armour. Even though they are helmets
they do protect you from getting shot in the head by an arrow.

It can be stacked. I assume you mean the Helm of the Skaven Slayer, if you read it's description is states...So it's as if the helms not there, but it adds to your save. So yes it maybe combined with MA as per normal, IIRC (but not a hundred percent sure). But otherwise it's fine with FPA....which can be combined with other equipment normally (including normal armour and a shield).
You can't combine the Helm of the Skaven Slayer with other magical armour, except of course the enchanted shield (which you can do with any magic armour). Full plate armour and a non-magical shield is alright though. Same goes with the Gromril Great Helm of Bretonnia.
Unless the item's description specifically states that it may be combined with magical items of the same type, you can't. Most common among these are Dispel Scrolls, Power Stones, and Enchanted Shields.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, even if it's wrong.
