In the old Sword an Spear man for man skirmish rules the shield was primary.

Armor was a bonus if something got through in reducing the odds of fatal wounds.

Are shields underrated in most game systems? It seems that a shield is one if not the most important piece of armor until the invention of gunpowder. Many games systems only give the wearer a +1 modifier, while Plate Mail would be rated much higher. What do you think?
