Report article RSS Feed Gear for the shield class!

First shield concepts added, - now we need your feedback.

Posted by CrapGames on Aug 28th, 2011

Hi Indie Community,

We´re back with a brand new concept to share with you. This week, it´s all about shields.
We wanted them to look very massive and clunky at the beginning, starting with raw planks and iron pieces. Detail then increases on higher tier.

We played around with different styles and material combinations and looked at lots of greek shields to keep an ancient touch.

Wich one do you like most?
If you could change one thing about the shields, what would that be?

join us - for a greater gaming experience!

My favorites are 9 and 3.

I would change 1 and probably give it another layer of wood of some sort.
Just my opinion though :)

ah, - we could replace one of the metal parts with wood, or we can add an additional layer of wood behind the metal.

I like 4, 8 and 9.
Perhaps 6 would look better with a shield boss on it? (A metal bit in the middle, it looks a bit too plain atm).

Is there a particular hierarchy of shield quality (as in, 1-9?) or are they shown in no particular order? Either way, I think 3 looks the closest to a Greek aesthetic, though 4 is particularly nice too - is it the best of this selection?

Not much to change, anyway, though I agree with the above poster about adding something to the middle of 6, perhaps...

there´s no particular hierarchy, but yes, shields on the right are better than those on the left.
And yes, in this collection, 4 is the highest tier ; )
