Just a quick question concerning the use of Heavy armour and Shield in WHFB7th:
I heard that in the current edition using the two armour pieces at the same time does not cause -1 penalty to Movement. Is it true?
I checked the rulebook and couldn't find any references to that, maybe the answer is in the armybooks (Empire?)... I only own Ogres and Undead, and again no infos in those...

Please, let me know!

Cheers!!!

There is indeed no -1 Movement modifier for heavy armour and shield combined in WHFB,
I hope this helped you

It was phased out with the release of 6th Ed I believe. I think the only armour-based move penalty that applies now is from barding on mounts.

Thank you very much, guys!!! Super fast reply!!!

That question has been bugging my brain for too long...
I don't really play WHFB (too big, too many minies) but got the rules in the BfSP boxed set, full of useful and convertible stunties and green gits for Mordheim at a fair price, so i took time to read the rules for possible inspiration in house ruling and such.

Much appreciated help, i bow!!!

Cheers!!!

Funny - I began WHFB during the 6th edition - I didn't even know that rule had existed before then. Interesting. Boy, that would certainly drag some armies (cough, cough, dwarves), down to a crawl.

Well I don't think it ever eally was a rule in warhammer, but more like the Morheim rule, so Dwarfs wouldn't be affected probably (or at least I would have hoped so)Rolling Eyes

Correct, Dwarves had a rule ignoring that penalty.
