so after modeling my new savage orcs with HW/Shield , i read the part in the BRB that says frenzied units can not claim a perry save .
I was hoping to give them a 6+/5+ save 6+from the shield as armor , and 5+ from warpaint and the shields perry save .
but as long as they are frenzied they can't get the perry save which means against most fores they will be down to a 6+ ward from the war paint .
i have a few questions , as I have never used savages b4 .
1 if i pass the leadership test am i frenzied , and do i get the extra perry save .
2 assuming I don't is there any point to taking the shields on savages ?
I remember some one somewhere talking about giving their Savages a 5+ ward save which made them very resilient , is the only way to do this by adding wazzz ?
Unfortunately, there is pretty much no point to this, as you only get the 6+ armour and that really makes next to no difference. In my eyes, Additional hand weapons are the only way to go, as spears only give the extra attacks when charged, whilst the AHWs give it all the time. As for the 5+ ward, there's a magic item called the Lucky Shrunken Head, which you can give to Shamans, which does boost your ward.

Aye the shrunken head is very popular in competition play. I hope your models can still be switched to dual choppas :p

Also, if you did get the Parry Save from the shield, it wouldn't stack with the Warpaint to give you a 5+ Ward, ward saves never stack you see. Just get a niiiice big unit of Savages, plug a level 1 Savage Orc Shaman in there with the lucky shrunken head, and boom! 5+ Ward save! I'd put a big stabba in there too, mmm mmm str 6 impact hits...
