A Dwarf Lord with Shieldbearers adds +2 to his Wounds characteristic and +2 to his armour save (to a maximum of 1+). A Lord and his Shieldbearers are treated in all respects as a single model (even in challenges) – the Lord cannot dismount and still benefits from the "Look Out Sir!" rule. It does, however, have two sets of characteristics, one for the Lord and one for the bearers. The Dwarf Lord and Shieldbearers use their own Weapon Skill, Strength, Initiative and Attacks characteristics when they attack. Each can attack any opponent in base contact. The Shieldbearers' Attacks do not benefit from any weapon, runic or otherwise, carried by the Dwarf Lord. The Shieldbearers have no Wounds or Toughness value and, therefore, can never be attacked separately. However, if the Dwarf Lord is removed as a casualty, we assume that the Shieldbearers were slain alongside their master and the whole model is removed from play. If the model is attacked in close combat, it is the Dwarf Lord's Weapon Skill that is used for the purposes of the enemy rolling To Hit.
