Thank you everyone for all of the feedback so far. I am making notes so that we can better our community with one mind set in motion.

Some of the shields were taken from the net and yes, other games. The logic behind the shield most recently discussed was to just kind of keep it simple. Tbh, the shields were my first venture back into modeling/texturing for nwn2 in over 3 years so was just more for practice.

The shields do NOT have tint maps atm but its on the list to applied soon - they will be added in a later update and noted when they are.

Thanks everyone! Happy Gaming! :D

These are super pretty and awesome. Stupendous work

Are there any that match for tower shields? Or are these just for large shields? I may have missed that comment in the scroll if they are.

Any deity shields being thrown in at any point? I know there are basics already for Helm, and Hoar, and a few others, but we're missing some others out there, like Tempus and Tymora, etc.

I love those shields. If they're large shields, my toons are already happy. I would gladly use one or the other of them.

But i agree, if they could be added for light and tower shields as well, it would be even better. :)
... and i'm past caring!

Thank you.

I am in the process of creating 30 Tower Shields and light shields atm. I have several projects open atm so I try to get some done here and there. Some of these shields might be getting a whole new look overall (as in the base model). Will update when nearly finished.

Any chance I can dump more work on you and ask for a Tower shield with the holy sigil of Mroadin on it.

... Tower Shield model conversions in progress as well. These shields however are not editable other than the mesh tints they come with.

sample:



perhaps over time... I can create editable versions.

*Uses threadomancy*

More a request for the future if it's possible.

Any chance of a large shield with the symbol of Garagos on it?

I would still love to see a heavy and tower shield model with Tempus' symbol on it myself.

Was the Garagos shield ever made?

Sorry if I am necroing this thread. But is there any chance we can have some more tower shield models at a point too? Because a majority of the ones we have are atrocious. There is one suitable for a knight type, one for your generic flaunting evil character and a whole bunch of planks and awful Llothite textured shields. Half of these if not more cant be tinted either.

Tower shields are simply a fashion abomination that mostly looks like a door was pulled off its hinges and given handles. #OrcStyle?
