Scuttler's Targe
I'm having loads of fun working with EVA foam and Plastidip lately!

Our park has a lot of great loaner gear, but only one small shield, so I made another.  Again, I was going for a life size tabletop miniature look, so I kept the device simple and exaggerated the wood grain.  This one also has a broad, flat area behind the rim I've been using as a sort of cheat sheet, scribbling the incantations for some of the spells commonly used by classes with access to small shields.

Media: EVA foam, plastic, acrylic, PlastiDip

I found out there was an Amtgard group meeting five minutes from my house, so now the kid and I are out getting sunshine and exercise once a week.  It's also a great place to get some sweat and dirt on my costume - hopefully I'll have worn the new off it in short order!

After playing through a few fights I'm totally sold on sword and board, but the loaner shields are too big for the class I'm playing, so here I am making my first shield.  Working in synthetic materials is a lot of fun, but also a different kind of challenge, because structural and surfacing work are completely divorced from one another.  You do the 3d stuff until it's all done, and then you do the 2d.  Building in stages isn't my strong suit.

I wanted to do something that matches the rest of my kit, but in a style that's evocative of a life sized tabletop wargaming miniature.  Some of the painting techniques don't scale up as well, but I'm proud enough of the result to show it off.
