2017-08-06 05:52:22 UTC  

Freikorps logo

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?

2017-08-06 14:19:58 UTC  

- Why, yes, here's the picture.

2017-08-06 18:27:29 UTC  

Inside of shield, prototype, h-how'd I do? A-am I a good nationalist?

2017-08-06 18:30:51 UTC  

Is that a pocket pussy next to the handle 😜

2017-08-06 18:35:28 UTC  

Yes. I'll need some company at night 😣

2017-08-06 18:39:52 UTC  

I made mine in 3/4" thick plywood so the thick padding helps me torque the shield against my forearm

2017-08-06 19:30:33 UTC

2017-08-06 19:31:52 UTC  

You're going to want some padding on the back of the shield, too

2017-08-06 19:35:40 UTC  

iirc the best foam to use would be a high density closed cell foam (like what camping mats are made from)

2017-08-06 19:36:51 UTC  

DAP contact cement as an adhesive

2017-08-06 19:37:38 UTC  

A 2x4 shield is hard to use offensively

You can throat punch a nigga with the bottom edge of a 2x2

2017-08-06 19:38:18 UTC  

We're mostly aiming for defensive shield use afaik

2017-08-06 19:40:08 UTC  

This for the official shield wall detail?

2017-08-06 19:40:23 UTC  

If so forget what I said...

2017-08-06 19:41:32 UTC  

i might not even need mine but i'm bringing one just in case

2017-08-06 19:42:34 UTC  

These are the best shields you can use for a defensive formation, which is what we are aimaing to achieve.

2017-08-06 19:43:15 UTC  

If youre bringing one, might as well familiarize yourself with the shield wall tactics in case you need to jump in there

2017-08-06 19:43:33 UTC  

the best defense is a good, mobile offense

2017-08-06 19:44:01 UTC  

but i will abide by the designated tactics by the field marshall

2017-08-06 19:45:17 UTC  

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.

2017-08-06 19:45:44 UTC  

Projectile defense.
