Combat Shield

Forearm mounted combat shield


Combat Shield, Adeptus Politia Pattern

Combat Shields grant 3 armour points to the arm holding it, and one other location, as well as +15 to parry attempts, but a -10 to attack.

Combat Shields do d5 damage.

Combat Shields can be Primitive, though few are.

Combat Shields can be mounted on the back, providing their armour points to body shots from the rear, though it is a full action to switch from the back to the hand.

A character using a Combat Shield can still use a basic weapon, but they do not receive the shields bonus, and take a -10 to their Ballistic Tests due to the weight.

Primitive Combat Shields are 25 thrones, Ballistic grade are 100
