ok i have a question, in the big rule book it says great weapons confer +2 str to the weilder, but only +1 str when mounted.
If i were to take a lord with shield bearers, would it give the normal +2 str or would it count as him being mounted? and would i lose hand wep +shield bonus to if i didnt take the great wep? (all saying i didnt take any weapon runes)
it has been concluded that shield bearers do not count as a mount by another forum. if i recal correctly the reasoning behind this is that the sheild bearers don't have a seperate stat line from the lord like mounts normally do and in fact join directly to the model.
they also quite unlike a mounted model still benifit from the "lookout sir" rule and it states that they are not counted as being a larger target than the units they join. (unlike normally mounted models)
it might be also a good idea to point out that as the lord and sheild bearers count as a single unit with US3 they are infact immune to killing blow under the new rules

cool thanks for clearing that up. looks like i have a reason for taking him again(its my favorite dwarf model)
But on the other hand lord with shieldbearers do receive a bonus to the armor save (as if mounted) and with 7th edition mounted characters can't be picked for enemy shooting as long as the mounted hero has a unit strength of 4 or less and the unit he joined has at least 5 models, and he does benefit from "Lookout, sir!" (chapter about characters, p.72ff)

Another shieldbearer (S question:
If the SB model is charged on the flank, does it still get both shieldbearer attacks or just one?
I believe it does as the rules say the MODEL gets the extra attacks, but I'd like confirmation or opposed arguments.
Arena of Death Champion: Nexim of the Guldskullz Tribe. Fear my wrath!
You would get all the attacks, as the Lord with Shield Bearers is counted as one model.
I guess it's assumed that the other bearer moves around to face the threat, or they just rotate or something. I don't know.
