A model equipping both a Shield and a Light armor, has an Armor Save value of 6 or 5+?
Sorry for the n4b question Wink

That's a 5+.

Unless of course you play the shield and handweapon house rule, in which case it becomes a 4+.

As per the above, but implementing the "Shield always has an unmitigatable save of 6+ from the front" works too.

I've never heard of that rule, Ordo. Interesting variation. What's the rationale?

Obsidian: To clarify: it is official 5+.

DRD refers to an unofficial house that shields grant a +2 save in COMBAT. They still provide +1 against shooting.

@DRD1812: It's our house rule, but I know that we picked it up somewhere on these forums.

Summarily: A shield and light armor would give a 4+ save. This applies to shooting, too.

Our "6+, regardless, if the target is in front," stems from wanting to make carrying a shield a great boon. Mathematically (wasn't there a thread about this?), two models, identical in all aspects sans armament (one has 2 weapons, one has weapon and shield) will see the one dual-wielding winning more often.

Additionally, if the save roll is successful, and the particular attacker a large creature, we rule that the shield is destroyed.
