You're going to want some padding on the back of the shield, too
iirc the best foam to use would be a high density closed cell foam (like what camping mats are made from)
DAP contact cement as an adhesive
A 2x4 shield is hard to use offensively
You can throat punch a nigga with the bottom edge of a 2x2
We're mostly aiming for defensive shield use afaik
This for the official shield wall detail?
If so forget what I said...
i might not even need mine but i'm bringing one just in case
These are the best shields you can use for a defensive formation, which is what we are aimaing to achieve.
If youre bringing one, might as well familiarize yourself with the shield wall tactics in case you need to jump in there
the best defense is a good, mobile offense
but i will abide by the designated tactics by the field marshall
In a melee, the best defense is one the opponent cannot get past. A shield wall is that, and tower shields make for an effective shield wall.
2 ranks, 1st rank kneels
Hastings 1066 or Venezuela 2017??
Hope other folks are bringing fire extinguishers
Maybe I've been watching too many euro maiden and Hamburg videos but molotovs concern me
That is for Cville 3.0
My local gun shop has a semi SAW for sale too
Anyone want to crowd fund me 2500??
^^ dibs for M249
A semi auto belt fead weapon is pointless you would be better off with a M4 or AK for 1/3 the price
Already have one of those ;)
Can you bump fire a 249??
They make semi-auto SAWs?
Automatic literally in the name
For padding on the backside, there is that spray foam stuff that comes in a can. I think it's called Kwik Foam. It expands pretty good once its sprayed on. Anyone tried that?
That stuff is to hard
You would be better off gluing fome to the back then putting some fabric over it
Or in the mid evil times they used thick lether
Helmet liner pads??
There should be a coordinated shield beating chant that we do to intimidate the enemy
Buy a roll of camp mat at Wall mart for $8
Cut it out and use spray adhesive or dap contact cement
