    I agree they should be full scale to match the swords.

    If shields are made than it would be a great dissapointment if they were not full sized. They would look odd and just not fit in with the rest of the swords. Boromir's shield would look like a small buckler or something. That would be a sight indeed. Perhaps if they made them small to go with the mini letter opener swords,, but..perhaps a tad too small. Either way, i want big...fullscale :)

    I would probably buy a full scale Elven Shield, but that small replica doesn't seem right... :/

    Boromir's shield and the normal gondorian one if they were full scale. If not...no way.
    I hope some UC dude is listening and going cha-CHING! $$$$

    We actually abandoned the idea of smaller scale shields a long time ago. Thonly one that may be slightly smaller is the prologue Elf shield. It may be 85-90% of actual size. Anything else we make should be full scale.

    WOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am so glad to hear that it just makes me so proud of this board and all its members, whether we had anything to do with the change in plan or not, we know at least what is going on, and reducing the EWS by ten % seems just as good. IF kit is still around I would like to know what materials are going to be used and the price range for the Elven warrio sheild?

    Hotness.

    Although what shields are particularly notable? I only remember the elven shield and Boromir's (the latter of which I'll be getting ;) )...

    There were likely Rohan shields, but I can't remember them being anything great. Oh, Gondor shields... those would be cool. Kite shields right?

    Close. The second age ones are more kite shaped than the third age.
    When can we expect the first shields to come out and what will they be? I'm so excited!

    Wooot! Excellent news Kit! :D So excited to hear that. Can't wait than for these shields, will go wonderfully with the swords i think. Now for a bigger house :p.

    Likewise, my feelings exactly. Also curious about the price and some materials.
    Thanks again Kit! Doing a great job there at UC.

    As to which other shields UC could make:

    How about the Easterling shields? Those were pretty cool.

    There are all kinds of possibles here. Boromir's of course, Easterling's is another, Uruk-hia which has several kinds. Rohirum, Numenorean, and on and on.
