In a related thought, I also like seeing two sword and shield users
on another creature where one of them uses shield rush and the other
attacks. I similiarly like seeing shield walls where the wall gangs
up on people along
the line with shield rush attacks and liberal use of force-retreat.
For a short time, I had a new Talent in my house rules...
IQ 8 Shield Wall (cost 1 IQ, prerequisite Shield)
Shield wall allows figures, under certain conditions to add their
shields' hits stopped to other figures.
In order to use this talent, both figures must both have the Shield
Wall talent, and ready shields.
If an attack is sucessful against one of the figures, the other
figure's shield's hits stopped is added to the attacked figure's if:
1. Both figures are adjacent, and
2. The attacking figure could have attacked the other figure.
So, if you're in a line (or some permutation thereof), and you're
attacked, you can use your hits stopped, plus the guys next to you
shield's hits stopped. Of course, there's a configuration where the
facing of an attacker doesn't allow the Shield Wall talent to work, but
then the second guy usually gets a side hit anyway.
I needed something like this for my version of the Roman legions. I
didn't want the individuals to be all that powerful by themselves, but
wanted them powerful as a group that had trained together. It worked
