    Well if you like to save your troops go with the armour save. If you wanna bash your friends models outright go with the great weapons. ANd if you can't decide take both, that why you can decide if you want save or strengh.

    I would definetly give them great weapons and shields , so they have a high strength and have a descent save.

    It could be a little costly but, hey if thats what you want go for it. That way you get to pick either one in close combat because you get to benifit from only one of the bonuses.

    Depends. Heavy Armour and a Shield grant a 4+ save, also. And that 4+ is also effective against range, since one of the points doesn't come from the Parry rule...
    Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
    NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
    Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
    Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD

    You can have the 4+ save against missile fire but in close combat you use either great weapon OR shield bonus.

    Always go for the GW, becuase it is the only unit in the army that can actuallly have some, and orcs and get the parry rule on foot because of the choppas

    Well if you are playing an opponent that has alot of missle troops go for the shields. But just don't pick GW because your use of them are scarce just go what you think is best. And if the case you can't decide buy both or flips a coin.
