Our SCA Battle shields are combat ready, made of 16-gauge steel—strong enough to absorb the shock of powerful blows, whether in practice or in actual reenactment. Two genuine, high-quality leather straps are affixed to the back of our shields so that you can start using it as soon as it comes to your door. From the vicious, kingly Rampant Lion to our more classic Crusades shield, each of our heavy-duty shields is hand-painted by skilled artists in glorious detail. You'll see for yourself when you view the bright yellows and vivid blues of our Medieval Castle Shield, or the riotous reds and rich golds of our Richard the Lionheart Shield. Should you wish to put your own crest on your shield, contact us about custom orders at sales@armorvenue.com. Include a picture of what you would like done and we will send you a quote.
