As for me I use this rule for armour:
Strenght gives penalty to armour saves from St5 and not from St4
Armours give the same save in game, but after the game, a model taken Out of Action, if wearing armour, can make a "Survival save"
basically, if yuou roll 1-2 for an henchmen or an injury for an hero you can make another armour save with a +1 bonus (the survival save) to be instead considered fully recovered.
For instance a warrior with shield and light armour would benefit of a 4+ Survival save
An hero can still be captured or sold to the arenas or lost etc, you can only avoid an injury or the death.
this, i found, justifies the high cost of armours, and makes very hard to get rid of an heavy armoured hero (or henchmen!)

I'm only a believer in armor once a warband gets a bit more established and if you have a hero worth protecting. If you're super lucky and you have the cash, gromril armor and the Shaggy Hide skill are a great combo. I do wish helmets also tacked a +1 onto the AS. (Maybe I'll see if I can house rule that! )

I had actually thought about doing a bunch of heroes all kitted out w/ heavy armor but, the 50gc tag for a 33% chance of making an AS ... meh. And that's assuming no axes or S4. Light armor is even more questionable for those reasons as well. I'd rather take a few hounds as meat shileds. Their super cheap at 15gc and quite expendable. M7 means they should get the charge. Hope they stun the enemy and have a hero come in behind and mop up for the xp.

Oh the hounds! I forget how awesome they are! Definitely, you want a couple of them to engage some nasty fast or shooty enemy.

I just got most of the parts for my warband, only to see that the two halves I was going to use to make my own Centigor are WAY out of proportion. I either have to switch over to a Minotaur (which costs so much more), or find another way for my conversion. The models all wear armor, so I figured light armor, but...

mh, well, i've seen many centigors on ebay at some reasonable price...
About the armour: at the beginning you could just skip the WYSIWYG part, and later adding it.

I'm actually making a Beastmen army based around Wolfbeasts (Worgen/werewolves, whatever you wanna call them). Making a Centigor with them involves probably hacking up a Thunderwolf mount to start.
