Well basically the question is just whether you can carry both a Shield and a Buckler at the same time, and use whichever one of them is appropriate at a given time?

Can't remember to have seen anything about it.

Aipha! How's your summer going? How's the Lustrian campaign?

I don't think there is any rule that prevents carrying both.

Can carry both but can only use one at a time.

Perfect; that's my impression as well, but one of the players strongly disagree for some reason!

Summer is going great, had vacation until now, but gotta go work a bit this weak. The campaign is a bit on hold, since we're supposed to play a multiplayer game, but can't seem to make everyone show up the same day! Kinda annoying, but we're not in a rush ^_^ how your summer?

Yep. I know that feeling. I think that actually was one of the factors that killed our BTB campaign.

Daym. Well, we had everyone accept for tomorrow, then one declined, but I just spoke with him and he's showing up anyway! Wink

Back on topic, I believe that having both the shield and buckler would also limit the amount of weapons a model could carry. I think they each would relace a weapon "spot" on the model.

Nothing in the rules to suggest this, although it might make for a good house rule.

Yeah, nothing in the rules would support this.

Thanks for all the responses! We'll go with allowing models to carry both and use one of them; this will not take a weapon slot.

P.S. Lustria campaign played today, all players (5) showed up, played 1 game for 5 hours. I won due to the others playing it too safe. Had some great random happenings (Bog Octopus, Swamp Flies, half range on missile weapons), which might have helped a little bit. Had a 1v1 afterwards where the Protectorate warband Soulfired half the Tileans, who stayed for an extra round, but that was it.

... Should prolly just do battle reports instead ^_^ I'll get to it, if I get the time!
