Renaissance Style Round Shield for larp by Adhras Renaissance Style Round Shield for larp by Adhras
It's a renaissance style shield that i made for a warhammer larp game. It's made with heat formed forex, bordered with foam and covered with leather.
For the motif on the center it took me one hour for design and three hour for carve :)


It may seem an insane work and in fact it is :D

This looks like heavy! Is it? :3 I would like to have one! I can't do all that medieval festivals because I just got operated to a leg so I can't run! So I need stuff like that xD My friends are going to help me! They're going to find me a shield, so I'm not going to be that afraid to get hurt by a sword!!! I'm a real knight, after all :D :D :D... Well... I'm... a real schoolgirl knight... ahem... XD

Forex is a plastic material perfect for thermoforming, and is the structure of this shield :)

I was wondering, how did you manage to get such a subtle curve? Like, what did you form over, if you're ok with sharing that info?

It's a plastic material (foamed PVC) that is used for signs, cartel ecc. and is very good for thermoforming
