View Full Version : Wood Elf Question on Armour?

Can a Wood Elf wear magic heavy armours and shields?

Yes they can.

Some of them can and some cannot for reasons beyond understanding. :D Our Battle Standard Bearer cannot use a shield (even a magic one) for some strange reason. Apparently holding the standard requires two hands, even though you CAN buy him a magical bow which he can then fire as normal. Games Workshop: "We hire the guys not even the government wants."

Wildrider kin can't have magic heavy armor.

Scouts, Wardancer and Waywatchers characters cannot either.

Eternal, Alter, Scout, and Wild Rider Kindred (or those without kindreds) Wood Elf Highborns and Wood Elf Nobles may have magic armor (although some change their special rules). Spellweavers, Spellsingers, Branchwraiths, and Highborns and Nobles in other kindreds may not be given magic armor.
(I think that sums it up)

Battle standard bearers cannot be given magical or mundane shields, to finish that list for you NTJ. :)

So just in case you wondered whether you can give your Wood Elf character a 2+ armour save with the Armour of Silvered Steel, yes you can :D

Yeah, you can armour up an average WE character so go for it :)
