Shields are included in the BSB being allowed no extra equipment, so no.

all 6th up to a couple of the earlier 7th edition books didn't allow BSB to take mundane armors or shields. So no, no shield for the bret one.

Yes. He's already wearing mundane heavy, I see no reason why he couldn't take magical armor as long as his banner remains non-magical.

Best combo for him is gromril helm and sword of might. Gives him a 3+ re-rollable save with some pop when attacking.

2+ rerollable isn't it? Heavy armour and steed = 3+ save, helm = 2+ save and reroll.

Barded mount +1AS
Helm +1AS

Many 6th ed books stated a BSB couldn't have a shield (magical or mundane) but not the Bret one. The bret one just suggests that a BSB can't take any mundane upgrades.

Exactly, but as you need to be able to take the mundane equivelent of a magic item to be able to equip it the inability to equip mundane items severly limits his item choice.

this is the point:

PALADIN EQUIP: "hand weapon, heavy armour"

BSB: "he may not be given any extra equipment, except for a barded warhorse or pegasus"

shield is upgrade!!!

so he can't have a shield (also magic cause base manual say no mundane shield = no magic shield);)

Keep in mind that if he takes a magic banner he doesn't get magic items at all.

But the above quote does wrap it up nicely, with no entry for a shield, the BsB is unable to be given a shield, magic or mundane.
