Multiple shields? Damn!
Having a shield party
recommendations on what to paint/design on the front of a 2x2 shield aaaaand go
A few of our pool party have the armbands which inspired the shields
Is it true that all terrorists have some AIDS...and that all AIDS have some terrorists?
- Why, yes, here's the picture.
Inside of shield, prototype, h-how'd I do? A-am I a good nationalist?
Is that a pocket pussy next to the handle 😜
Yes. I'll need some company at night 😣
I made mine in 3/4" thick plywood so the thick padding helps me torque the shield against my forearm
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.
