A Storm Shield counts as a one-handed weapon for weapon selection purposes. As such you WG will probably only be able to carry the PF + SS [two one-handed weapons]

combat shields do not take up a weapon hand and such you can have 2 ccw giving you the bonus.. storm shields on the other hand (literally) take up one of your hands and thereby your can never recieve the addtional attack for 2ccw while you have one.

I think it'd be better to go for the storm shield and PF combo, as you'll have better survivability and should have enough attack to see off you opponents. Though the CS, BP and PF or PW would be better on the Rune Priest (if its possible that is)
