Got the shield just about done. Despite how simple it looks, this took about 2 hours. getting teh sybol to be big enough to fill the majority of the shield while still remaining properly oriented was tricky. Also, it’s two layers of plasticard glued together, so the edges had to be filed and smoothed to look like one piece.
I tried to pull off a uniform thickness border, but no dice. I’ll try a different approach tomorrow. So I think a perimeter of rivets will look nice instead.
Here’s the back of the shield:
And here it is sticky-tac’d into place on our hero. I’ve washed the rune with red to allow it to show a bit better. The shield will be mainly blackmetal and the rune will be painted as if made from lava.
