Hi there, sorry if this is in the wronf place but after GW shockingly removed their last nod to veteran modelers (the bitz store), I can't find these anywhere anymore, and I need another 5/6.
They are the shield from this pack: Games Workshop Online Store — Necromunda Enforcers Patrol Team that I was using to make Riot Marines, looked cool as well but I need to finish the squad!
The guy on the far left here:
Is holding one, it came with a power maul that I'm also keen on getting.
Out of interest where do people go for their parts like this now? Do you reckon GW will ever bring their parts store back? Do you want it back? Would you sign a petition or FB group to pressure them?
Try looking on ebay for parts, after games workshops no bitz stupid policy folks on there are having a field day buying boxes splitting them down and selling only bitz.
As to your shields i would say look to a company called I-kore and there Junker miniatures, they have shields that are very similar and would fit the job very nicely, heres a link to some one selling some.
Good lord those shields are perfect thanks!
I think I might try and make more things as well, I'll try with the plasticard and see what I can do, never really had a good go but now is as good a time as ever I suppose.
GW really have shot themselves in the foot over the parts deal, I've started to buy plastic parts off ebay far more than I ever did from their rubbish online store - in fact it has pushed me into dealers arms completely, I got two brand new, on the sprue, Rhinos for £22 today.
Thanks for the info guys
Yup no denying that, i've also bought many parts off of ebay that i couldnt have got from there online store in the first place either, individual pieces from tactical squads or devastator sprues. And no like you said about the rhinos.. the price on ebay is very competitive too
After a brief hiatus with modeling - I am back and *still* looking for these shields.
I now only need 4, but 4 that are tough to get.....
I was actually looking for the same shields myself (for some Guard/Arbites) last week but didn't find any on Ebay. I'm not brilliant on 'bitz' sites but i'm sure some others around here will know of many.
Can you not just use Plasticard and the Brass eagles from FW? or sculpt the Eagle? Hell you could even try and do a 'press' for the eagles with Green.
*subscribed incase you find some*

Well I have considered everything from casting 4 of them (If GW don't want my money that's their problem), to making some from plasticard (I have both plasticard and imperial eagle brass sprue from FW), but I'd really like them to match what I've already made.
Sorry I don't have a picture to hand, they ended up looking good however. They're the basis of my BA successor vet assault squad so I wanted some consistency.
I did get the models mentioned above but they weren't quite good enough (I can sell you those if you like!!)
Nah i'm fine lol. I ended up using a load of space Marine Combat shields.
The old link doesn't work. What are these shields?
