Feudal German Shields

I did some tests to see if I could paint shields designs approximating those in this picture:
I used a pencil for a rough outline & then just dabbed on some paint. It seems to be do-able - if a bit rough, but I didn't spend too much time on them. My wife was sitting next to me on the computer & I was squeezing in next to her trying to paint these - my computer is next to my paint table. They should look a little better after I go back & clean them up.


  1. Isn't painting medieval shield patterns, and heraldry in general, a pain in the tookus?


  2. Kevin:

    Definitely can be - geometric patterns aren't hard, only time-consuming. I struggle with animal charges & the like. Your work is really nice on those figures you lent me for Enfilade. Impressive work. Regards, Dean
