    Making Custom Shields

    So ive had this idea for my IG for a while, but after some trial and error I still have not come up with an effective way to make shields.

    The idea was to give my IG infantry a shield to carry into battle, almost like a ballistics shield a SWAT unit will use while breaching a target location. I don't want to use some of the existing shields out there, because they are too bulky and dont look like what I want.

    To give you guys a better picture, id like my shield to look almost this a Gundam shield, like this: http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y12...ku/l_mk2_6.jpg

    If anyone has any suggestions on how to make this, and how to make it so small, please let me know. I have tried greenstuff sofar, as well as an attempt at using carved plasticard, but sofar no luck. Thanks in advance.

    That shield?

    My first guess would be plasticard. Apart from that I think in the Fantasy range (Found it here!) with some cutting...

    Yeah I agree with Tsele. Either Plasticcard if not Greenstuff or source from another model. How about Riot shields from Necromunda Arbities.

    Maybe you could use the Black Orc shields? Although they may be a bit small...
