    If you didn't understand, that means no don't give them shields, they're just there as a distraction and are going to go pop anyway. If you have Clanrats, give them shields, but not slaves. Come on, like any sort of self-respecting Skaven would give his underling half-decent equipment.

Or am I better to get more clanrats and to each unit to make 2 units, one with hand weapons and shields, one with spears and shields?
    There's no problem, though I prefer my skavenslaves to have shields, just to tick off my opponents "that much more" ...

    I generally give my slaves shields as well.

    Just comes in handy, dying a little bit slower than otherwise for a small points upgrade. Can come in handy especially in trying to keep ranks and steadfast going until spells and warpfire and burn the engaged enemy out.

    For WYSIWYG, agreed nobody really cares, at least not when it comes to a giant horde of rats. I use a bunch of the old skaven models with no shields and a bunch of the IoB skaven with swords and spears for all mixed together in formation for my clanrats/skavenslaves, but as long as I tell my opponent they're all hand weapon+shield beforehand, nobody has a problem.

    ...A blog that's mostly about Infinity, but sometimes other stuff too.

    I used to do that with my skeletons in my vc. I used about 75% spears, just to make them clear. I just wanted ot to look like they came out of the ground with whatever they had.
