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!

Weight : 4.065 Kg

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?

It looks really nice.  Well done and all ^^

As a reenacter, I have a tip and a question.  The tip is, to make historically good looking rivets, just use thick iron nails and cut 'em to size before hammering them down.  The question is, I'm not sure how one grabs that shield, though I have no idea the final purpose of this one in particular.  If you're interested, you can see my heather shield, has an historically accurate strap system and can be used as a base for designing fantasy stuff.

Well as I've said in the descrition : the weakness was mostly the modern nails & washer =)

For the Straps, it seems good so far, well perhaps change a little the angle, and make it more vertical/open.
I know a lot of strap system, and way to handle a shield, no worries, it's part of my work ;) (as use them x) a lot )

I love it. It's cool to see something from a game becoming so real it could probably be used in battle. Just one question: did you paint the symbol because it's supposed to be painted (medieval shields were)? Cause it would probably look better if you cutted it into something (leather, or thin metal) and then attached it IMHO :)

This is the tricky part : Make it look real
And you know what is the best answer ? > Make it for real, as it would have been done for be usefull. ;)
Ad the symbol (as seen on most of fantasy shields) is a bad idea, It's better painted =)
In metal : too much weight for no protection added.
In Leather : need of work and little ad of weight, but.. for what purpose ? Look more fantasy?
So it would have been made completly of metal, and just for parading/ décoration, not for fight =)
;)

(IMHO ???)

I don't do any shields for sell ^^
If I am a craftman it's just for perform purpose at first, or for create images
This is not my purpose =)
I sell my performs, my images, my knowledge. Not my creations. ;)

travail propre, net, et put*** tous les rivets semblent à égale distance! (ce qui doit être le cas). j'aime également beaucoup le motif, et le raccord couleur blanc à l'avant et à l'arrière.

Ce sont des clous x) et.. J'avais un mettre dans les main pendant que je les posait =p
D’où, oui, j'espère qu'ils sont à des distances relativement égales x)

Par contre comme je disais plus tôt... Les clous pour les parties de cuir, avec ces rondelles, le tout en galva, c'est moche...
C'est décidé j'arrête !
Passage à des rivets à mater plus "histo" plus beaux, et des plaques d'acier découpées pour remplacer les rondelles !

Oui une unités de couleurs c'est un bon plus... Et tu me pousse à refaire un bouclier de capitaine avec cette fois un matelassage plus "pimp" pour ce dernier... Un jaune ou un bleu... Avec des clous en laiton x)
- Oui, je ne suis pas encore satisfait de mon travail x) -

Donc c'est vraiment pas énorme.. Après "lourd" c'est très subjectif.
Pour des professionnels, 7 Kg par exemple, c'est pas un problème pour un bouclier ( Comme nos boucliers de légionnaires césariens)

Donc le poids est tout à fait maniable pour celui ci ;)
