    I am curently converting a aspiring champion to take a HERO slot and was wondering what people equipt them with most of the time...

    This army is a Mortal (Wariors <-waiting for new ones, Probably some chariots not sure yet)

    The question is what is better point wise for equipment?

    I was thinking great weapon / shield <-- does this work well?

    I had this long signature made up, but I didnt like it...

    Well the GW and shield will only work against misile fire, as sheilds can&#39;t be used with a two-handed weapon in combat. Although a Halberd or extra HW looks rather tasty.

    Then you should figure if you want him to bear some sort of magic weapon etc

    Ok.. First of all let me just say sorry for this post, i am a total noob when it comes to fantasy... (I have been playing 40K for at least 10 years but have never got into fantasy until now 8| )

    Now ok, a halbeard sounds good and would work with what i have converted him to look like, but i gave him a shield... im geussing the halbeard counts as a two handed weapon so same thing with the shield right? (im guessing because i am not home right now to check)

    Aye an halberd is 2-handed too, the shiled can be used against shooting but just not in combat if you use the halberd.

    It&#39;s ok, there&#39;s time And welcome to the realm of tactics ^_^

    ok, because I have seen people play with shield and GW, and they sware by it, I guess its a matter point sinks, I guess the question is "would it really work since I cant use both at the same time" right?

    It would work, you just say that the shield is dropped or slung onto his back during comabt as he uses the halberd. Poeple don&#39;t really have that much of a problem, FB is less WYSIWYG.

    But if the model looks good with the shield on leave it, it does benefit you vs missile attacks.
