[CIP] HOMo and equipping followers


Playing as Beogh worshipper is very challenging, the whole game acquires a very different flavour when the main goal becomes saving fellow orcs and help them out.
Anyway, I don't have much experience with followers and I was wondering which is the best way of equipping them. At the moment I am sticking to giving them polearms, however having gotten Nergalle, several orc knights, one sorcerer and one high priest, I figured out that I should probably start giving them shields and armours instead of sticks, especially for the ones in bold.
How does it work, do they suffer shield and armour penalty for casting as well? Which general advice could you give for followers?
Any other advice is welcome.
Thank you very much in advance.
