which equipment do you prefer for warriors?
I want to play cheap warriors so no MoK+Halberd+Shield.
Thanks for opinions and voting.

Which I prefer? Well that really depends who you're playing. Halberds is all about killiness while shields is all about durability, obviously.
Against armies that offer little in terms of threat then Halberds all the way as your T4 and 4+ Save should see you through. Against scary things like Ogres, High Elves (just from pure attacks) Daemons etc then I'd grab shields and Tzeentch to keep you alive. Your Str4 2 attacks should be enough to win you combats, against Elves definately.
If you can't decide and plan to have multiple Warrior units in your army go for a mix of weaponry.
For one thing I wont go for halberd + shield, I would give them halberd and if you have enough spare points I would give them shields.
MoT + Halberds. i mean, for the points the MoT is better than shields.
in that case MoT + HW + shield. Then you have a 5+ ward save in close combat.
I thought Halbreds used both hands ? Is the shield only used for ward saves from shooting or how does it work ?
The shield is there purely for the +1 Save against shooting. As soon as you enter combat you use your halberds and sling your shields on your back. In combat the shield does nothing.
I personally like offensive power so I go halberds on chosen so they might get ward save/extra armour anyway.
I use a small ten models unit of basic Chosen with Halberd and Shield in order to take on enemy units that are either too big (T5) or too hard (WS6). I prefer the Mark of Slaanesh to help them take on those bigger models (Trolls, etc) rather than Khorne because I want more control over them as they're an expensive elite unit.
