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 eyelets...
I have to stop. I won't make any other shields that way.
Waht will replace this will be decent rivets and a steel square, for be more realistic, and have a better look!
