I don't have the book yet and am wondering both how Shieldbearers work in practice and what their abilities are. Are the some kind of bodyguard character for Capatains and Epic Heroes or just a lesser version of a dwarf Captain. Thanks.

they just go in units and boost their staying power by +1 oh and they also add 1 might.

What is funny is Captains have better stats more might and the shieldbearer is suppose to be a personal bodyguard to the king... yeah these guys are a waste of money and points. Just spend it on more normal dwarfs. I would only take these guys in LARGE games like 5k and even then their point costs and worth is very marginal (much like banners and musicians)

I have to disagree here billpete. They may be worse than a captain stat wise, but they are also half the points. They still allow you to at the double, and their special ability is not to be underestimated either
