Mormont Shieldmaiden Defender keyword question

2 posts in this topic

Do Mormont Shieldmaidens get Stalwart and Heavy Armour from the Defender keyword on their unit card, or do they need to have a defend token in their hex to benefit from Stalwart and Heavy Armour? 

 

I only ask because under the Defend token description it says that any unit in a hex with a defend token is considered a Defender (Not highlighted like the keyword on the Mormont Shieldmaiden is). Is the Shieldmaiden's Defender keyword the same as the Defender trait given by a Defend token?

Mormont Shieldmaidens do need to drop a  token to gain keywords Stalwart and Heavy Armor - they do not have them by default. The rulebook clearly says:

 

Defender
Units with this keyword can assume a defensive posture to protect against enemy off ensives. If this unit does not attack, place a defend token in its hex.
 
So, there is a condition. Otherwise, the maidens should have just Stalwart/Heavy armor on their unit card as there is no way for a unit without the defender keyword to get in a hex with a defender token and the entire concept of the mechanic makes no sense.
 
edit: sorry for a mistake - units can gain defender token via leadership cards. The answer to the question remains the same, however :P
