New Article: Round Shields and Stickers

Postby SavaTheAggie » Mon Mar 14, 2005 10:46 pm

Title says it all.

The article can be found HERE.

Two of the designs I was unable to do with 100% accuracy. One I did not attempt and the other I did. I will just have to wait until better pictures become available to work from.

Comments/criticism welcome.

Great as always!

I was, for some reason, especially captured by Three Knots Green. It looks like would go great with a Rascus-torso.

As with the octogonal shields, the Yellow Castle era designs tranlated better than the more recent forms. I notice that you didn't even attempt some of them, but only the older, more popular ones.

Great job as aways. You did a great job making these shields. Some of the Classic castle ones were very well done.

I must say that I was somewhat disapointed that there was no Royal Knights, Dragon Masters, or KK1 designs there. But I can imagine how hard some are to make.

I really love those sheild designs, and I am itching to print some.

I know this is embarassing, but what piece do you stick them on? And will they work on a standard round sheild?

Thanks

Good job on the "Wolfpack" and "Black Falcon Blue". The others are ok to. However, are these good to any one in North America?

Of course! Aside from buying the shields off Bricklink and from the sets at S@H, the parts that make up the shields have been available already in other series and sets for several years.

You can buy these shield parts off Bricklink for pennies. In fact there are white ones in my bricklink shop :)

Cool article, there all cool, but the one that stood out two me most was the House of Drakon the Whirlwind. I'll need to print that out once I get some vikings.
