Okay, I got into a little rules debate today down at the LGS with a customer about whether or not my pikes on my easterlings were two-handed weapons or not, and whether they get a bonus for having shields or not.

I understand my opponent's view on the matter - that pikes would be pretty hard to use with shields, but I can't find anything in the rules to substantiate this claim. Anyone have any ideas, or am I missing something important?
