Yes, the shields for the big figs are that paper/plastic material. I will try to get a pic of the part that holds it on when the sun is up, but for now I will try to describe it - its like a small shield with a open stud on the front. The Back has a technic axle that is angled and goes into the wrist of the large fig. You connect the clear radar-dish to it and that holds the shield on.
And yes, the minifig shields are plastic - nice and solid.

I took a pic of the back and uploaded it here:

I am very proud to say there is not a single sticker in the sets I got. The minifigs that have the armor have plain torsos. The only decorated torsos on the figs I have are the ones you can see - the King and the Shadow Knight. All of the plain torsos are the same color of the fig.

I must admit - I have never put a helmet on a horse before, so I have nothing to compare it to, but IMHO it was on there good, we did not have any problems with it falling off.
One thing I forgot to mention, and am not sure if it is known or not - the minifigs wear regular helmets:
And the fancy face shields are visors:
But they do attach VERY well for something as large as they are.
