Some thoughts for your comments please guys
1. Apart from the immediate Household bases of Harold and possibly those of his brothers and the northern Earls, the larger main body of housecarls count as noble shield wall with the loyalty bonus.
2. Danish axe, using the rules discussed in another thread on this page may be deployed by the housecarls and the normal noble shieldwall representing thegns.
3. 1 base of noble shieldwall may combine during intial deployment with 2 bases of ordinary shieldwall to make 3 units of strengthened shieldwall which fight as noble shieldwall but at the end of a turn in which a cohesion point is lost must pass a bravery test (+1 on dice for each cohesion lost) to retain noble shieldwall stats - if failed, base reverts to ordinary shieldwall for rest of game.
4. All shieldwall have hurled weapons - texts say that the Normans made mention of the amount of stuff that was thrown out from a shieldwall.
