Equipping Banners under the new Hobbit Rules

Postby Rusty Ironpants » Wed Jan 02, 2013 4:47 am

Hello,
It seems there are some changes regarding banners in the new rules.
1. There is no longer a limit of 1 banner per hero in your army.
2. It no longer states that models equipped with banners can only have armor and steeds but no other equipment.

Regarding #2, can a model with a banner can now use a shield/sword/bow?

What do you guys think?

The warbands system made the one banner per hero rule unnecessary I think.

I think you are correct about the relaxing of the banner bearer restrictions. I have to read that section of the new book to be sure.
