Windhelm Shield by CanisPanthera Windhelm Shield by CanisPanthera
So happy to have completed this! It took literally forever. Before the big bang, this prop shield was being created.

Base shield is made of insulation foam with a cardboard rim, completely fiberglassed over (including handle). Then, with a Dremel, I painstakingly carved into the fiberglassed surface to produce both the wood texture (more apparent on the front) and the hammered metal texture seen on the rim of the shield. I got this technique from Volpin Props: [link]

I don't even want to know how many hours this took. But in the end it was well worth it!

Check out how I made it here: [link]

I can't believe this is an actual object made in real life! It's too realistic to be a prop.

I guess real wood would have been too heavy, right?

Hehe yeah it's really light, but very strong too. I accidentally drove my car over it; minor damage. Just required a bit of repainting. If I had used real wood, I probably would have wanted to put an arm strap in. As it is, it's a little difficult to keep holding upright with one hand lol
