Mirkwood Glaives with or without Shields?

Fri Jan 22, 2016 12:14 am

Hello.

I recently purchased 9 Mirkwood Armoured elves with Glaives.

That's 10 points each.

Should I give them a shield as well?

What are the pros and cons?

Thanks.

I think the more a model costs the more it is worth adding a shield!

You'd want it vs some types of bow fire, and it would def help in combat.

I think u need it - ur bound to run in to Isengard.
Good fight value and cheesy pike formations.

I would magnetise elven shelds.
Allowing u to Play without shields against orcs, and moria,
and WITH shields to isengard/easterlings.

Throw in a banner when ur unshielded and ur golden - fight value are the elves strengh.
