I am new to Fantasy and I was wondering if you keep the weapons in your profile if you take a different weapon from the options.

Specifically do Tomb Guard get hand weapons and shields as well as halberds if you buy them?

Thanks

Technically yes, but anything that is not a hand weapon (like an halberd) is a special weapon. And the unit must use their special weapon in combat. So for the Tomb Guards that mean you'll have the shield versus shooting, but won't have it in combat.

You can read more about it on p.88-89 in the rule book.
