Lordaeron Footman Shield by Carancerth Lordaeron Footman Shield by Carancerth
This is the new version of the Shields I made for Lordaeron

The color shem is far better than the  first version
Wich was more based on Warcraft 3 shem for human shield, but, after seeing the result, after more researches, this is a better choice, as it's also closer to the flags and the tabards ;)
The colors have more contrast with a daker blue, and in reality it's important to goes "darker" for realistic stuff, and avoid cartoony look.

Also the leather border in brown is an interesting for once again, a more realistic look, and nailed it could be a good idea and refer to the designs in the game.
The inner part is padded, and the buckles have all the same design in different sizes, for a link beetween each parts.
It help to size it at the best size for the use of the shield.
There is also a long strap, wich is use for balance the shield during the use and make the shield more ergonomic.

The only thing I really regret here is that I'm still using gavanized nails and washer...
I have to stop. I won't make any other shields that way.
This is why I will replace this by decent rivets and a steel squares, for be more realistic, and have a better look!

This is just simply amazing I love the details on the shield such as shape, design, and the coloring. I love how you pay attention to the colors and you said that the key to making sure it is realistic is the darker the color which I agree on. Another smart detail is the strap on the shield to truly bring out another factor to consider. In fact it brings out the reality of it when a person is holding a shield like this they are likely going to keep their arm diagonally. The symbol is also spot on. You did a great job replicating the crest. I give it a 9 out of 10 for the great effort you put into it.
What do you think?
