Isengard Troll

Fri Jan 17, 2014 1:49 pm

Hi all,
I recently finished an Isengard troll, but decided to make it without the shield option.
When playing the game I assume because he has no shield you reduce defence score by 1 and obviously remove the ability to make 'shielding' special strike?
Just wanted to check this was correct

Because it is included in the profile as default without the option to add or remove, I would still count him as having a shield. You are paying the points for it, and your opponent cant look at any alternate profiles.

If you needed fluff, he could count as shielding with his weapon, such as with wood elf spears or the same way the twins do, and it is believable that a troll could have tougher skin than normal for the increase in defense.

You technically can't have him as an isengard troll because a shield is part of their war gear and it was intended for the shield to be assembled with the isengard design. That said It wouldn't really mind.
