Sorties into the wasteland can be a dangerous proposition for even the most well-trained Brother of Steel initiate. The Order of the Shield are a bulwark against all foes that may come across the path of their brothers, equipped with power armour and some of the best weaponry available to man.
Brothers in T-60 armour and toting laser weaponry storm their way through the battlefield, past-masters at fire and manoeuvre, close support infantry combat. Each brother or sister knows their role to the letter, and as a fire team they operate as a well-oiled machine. The power armoured element makes its way forward, creating an opening for the more lightly armoured field scribe to go about their business; salvaging technology, investigating rogue signals or tending to the wounded. Other tactics include offering the scribe as seemingly fragile bait, but they are far from defenceless. Laying mines, setting traps and rigging explosives are all well within the field scribe’s abilities, often making them even more dangerous than their steel clad brethren.
