I actually made this last August (2014) but never got around to posting a picture of it on here. This is my first attempt, perhaps I will try another this summer. I used plywood and then put a layer of red canvas on top, and then pasted on the design, which is supposed to be 3 wolves forming a triskel! On the rim is dog rawhide which I soaked, unravelled into strips, and secured with upholstery tacks. The boss is from Amazon. On the backside, the handle is actually part of the shaft of a broken sledgehammer. A part of the shaft towards the hammer head was split and so I just took a section off. The screws on the boss there go through the boss, shield, and secure the handle on the other side.
Nice! I love the wolf decals!
Thank you! How've you been?
Great. You still on ACG? Have you seen the Most Influential/Significant Fighter campaign? Me 262 vs Spitfire...I voted 262 but hell, if the Spitfire wins I'll be happy lol.
ahhh pretty damn awesome! looks incredible dude.
Thanks! It was a fun project. This summer I may make a new Viking shield or make a Gaulish/Celtic scutum (Romans copied from them IIRC) since all that would require is just some straight cuts pretty much, with a power saw, rather than using a jigsaw to cut a round shape.
