The best part:

Queek: More often than not, its more advantageous to just use hand weapon and shield. So in combat, the halberdiers are often just second-rate swordsmen

Graham: Hmmm... maybe, but I'd take S4 any day. The one thing the Empire isn't short off is bodies. I play like an aristo!


Note to GW Management: Ask all potential applicants to the design studio to explain in 100 words or less why swordsmen using hw/sh are better than halberdiers and their S4.

Methinks your expectations are wa-a-ay too high...

And as a slight correction, this interview was conducted on January 18 (not last night).

Do halberdiers come with shields as a default? Used to be optional, so I never used them as low-grade swordsmen. Spearmen, otoh, always came with shield, so you could always play them as hand weapon shield if you wanted to.

John,

Halberdiers and spearman are both 5 points and come with light armour. Shields are +1 point for both.

The way to take Halberdiers is without the shield, 5 points for a S4 trooper is not bad.

The only problem with halberdiers is that you can take swordsmen or militia
