Welcome to the dark side:

1) Shields are crappy. They make you lose an attack (off hand weapon) and a 6+ save is useless in mordheim. Trade shields for axes or hammers.

2) Give your champions close combat weapons. seriously. They will need them.

ALso give your marksmen a hammer for a backup weapon at least.

While I agree that shields are useless, a 6+ save is NOT useless ;-)
That's why Toughened Leathers are so good... nothing like turning that dagger save into a 5+... and a LOT of people use daggers!

not to beleagure the point, but, from a 6+ save:

S4 = no save
Axe = no save

Two very common things lead to "no save"

Oh, and the ONLY reason TL is good, is that it's the same as wearing Light Armor, only for a fourth of the cost. (No loss of attacks or anything.)

But TL is also ONLY available to heroes.

I know. I'm just saying ;-)

And yes.... I know about the minuses... but you do tend to get hit with daggers often, and not always by S4 gents :)

If you're not going to invest in better armor... it's a good idea to get TL for early on, and then save up for the "dream suit" I think.

actually, pirate henchman can get leathers
but yeah, when you actually do get the 6+, it really helps. and if you get a parry before that...
