I have a question regarding Space Marine wargear. The description of the storm shield says this:
"A model with a storm shield has a 3+ invulnerable save. A model equipped with a storm shield can never claim the +1 Attack bonus for being armed with two close combat weapons in an assault" (SM Codex 101).
By my reading, it would seem that the storm shield doesn't actually count as a hand-slot, and can be wielded in addition to a one-handed or two-handed weapon in an assault. Heck, you could even use it along with two one-handed weapons, although you wouldn't be able to claim the extra attack for it. Is this correct?
Sorry if this has been answered in the FAQs, I have horrible internet right now and I can't download either of them.
