I was reading a bit in my armybook and there is a question i have about the shieldbearers.
I read in the book that the lord who takes shieldbearers gets 2 extra attacks of WS5 and Str4. So the Lord has 6 attacks.
Then I was tooling the magic of my lord a bit and choose a magic weapon (forgot the name) that always hits on 2+. The item states that you should increase your Str until you hit on 2+ and that the required Str also counts towards AS modification..
Example: T3 char should be hit by S6 i think to get to 2+ and then the AS modifier = -3.
But does this also work for the 2 attacks the lord gets from the shiedbearers?? Nowhere is stated that the bearers fight on their own. Just that the attacks are WS5 and str4
A Lord with
shieldbeares, shield, handweapon, gromril armor
The magic handweapon that wounds on 2+ and the added AS modifiers.
is just a wicked lord. if I have done my math then he has (depending on my posts outcome)
6 attacks that always strike on 2+ with prolly a minimum str of 4
Put him into a unit with longbeards and have some fun. Would love to see him go head to head with a T5 or 6 opponent Instant killer since the target wont get AS anymore, only a WS if it has one.
No, the shieldbearers do not benefit from the lords runes on his axe. They are considered to be separate entities that cannot be attacked. Page 29 under the Shieldbearer subheading states that they do not benefit from the characters runes.
thought so, but glad I asked but this config still rocks in my opinion
I believe the lord only has 4 attacks. The lord works best in a unit of Hammerers to give them ITP and Stubborn.
ITP= Immune to Psychology
