Hi all

Is this combo legal/illegal/just plain cheesy..

Inquistor kitted with storm shield, bolter and power sword. Bolter for use when shooting at range. Shield cannot be used, no 3+ invulnerable save. Charged by enemy and switches to storm shield and sword for close work.

Is this affected by the rules Re basic weapons and two weapon bonus in melee?

There's nothing stopping you from using ranged weapons in any form when equipped with a storm shield.

In fact, you can fire a bolter or needle pistol or plasma or combi-melta or whatever, while also benefitting from 3+ invuln against shooting--- then when you charge or get charged, instantly get your melee weapon and still get 3+ invuln.

The only thing you cannot do is gain +1 attack for dual weapons, or use a parry if you aren't using a sword in the melee (such as if you use your pistol instead)
