Default Clanrat Armour and Saves in General

Hello again!

I am having some issues with the armour saves of my clanrats. I have read over and over on several forums that with a shield, clanrats get a 4+ save. But this makes no sense to me. In the rule book it says light armour + shield = 5+. I would love a 4+ save, so is there somewhere that says this in the book or army book? I have looked, but not seen, could easily be my fault though.

Help appreciated!

Light Armour + Shield = 5+
Light Armour + Hand Weapon + Shield = 4+

Fighting with a HW and Shield gives you a 1 bonus.

In the rule book it states that you get anadditional point to your armour save when in close combat with hand and shield. look at shields in the rulebook

So they are 5+ for anything other than close combat, which is a 4+.

Strange, but not a Stranger.

That's right, HW shield bonus is to the front only also.
