Shield and Castle Ruins

Postby kodykoala » Sat Dec 01, 2012 8:42 am

Hi everyone. I need some help finding some parts. I need a shield that would work with a 6" figure that is big enough to put a logo on. I was also trying to think of how to make a base that looked like castle ruins. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!

For castle ruins lookin into wargames terrain. There are a ton of tutorials for making all sorts of terrain types including castle ruins, all you have to do is scale it up. Here are some cool ones: http://www.terragenesis.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7113 http://www.terragenesis.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5020

I'm sure he won't mind me posting this so check out Bobtheodd's youtube channel, he makes some amazing castle/ stone dios from foam and packing materials. There are some great vids on there specifically this one for what you want, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpefQi7RNsM .

As for the shield, maybe a cap America shield, LOTR shields or Chap Mei do some pretty large shields too. Don't know if you have them in Oz but check in your local pound/dollar shops, ours often have figures with stupidly oversized accessories.

Thanks everyone. I decide to go to my usual fallback plan, and I used LEGO bricks. I roughed them up and made them look like stones. I found a great shield from a Gondorian Swordsman. Thanks again, all the suggestions were very helpful.
