This final image gives a better view of the finished shield design, which has been washed with Sepia and Black washes around the edges.
It is an easy design, which I should be able to reproduce many, many times.
Painting the shield (which is really very big and hides a huge amount of the painted figure) was a little tricky. I mounted the shield boss (the inside boss) onto the blunt end of a bamboo skewer with a small dab of superglue. I then spray painted the shield Black and touched-up any missed spots with Chaos Black.
When the shield was finished, I simply broke the joint between the skewer and shield and superglued it in place with superglue on the miniatures left fist (remove the paint first - to get a better join) and accelerator on the internal boss.
Since painting one design - I have basecoated the other two but have been told that Maveryc Games have commissioned a transfer shield design which should be out soon. I may wait to see what the design is like before painting any more.
