While I really like 90% of the silhouettes, Isn't there an orcish shield in the making already?

These are fantastic! Very

These are fantastic! Very clean and professional. Overall I think all of these are fantastic! Can't wait to see more. My favorite tower shield is  number 6, and I love 6s and 7s. Well done!

Edit: Didn't see the numbers =)

All the shields have numbers

All the shields have numbers actually. They are just hard to see

Bigjon - they are numbered,

Bigjon - they are numbered, but the numbers are really hard to see, since they're white against a very light grey. I'd be opting for variant 6 for both small and tower shield ;)

Since Draogmir(the author of the other thread) just posted right above you, I'm guessing it wasn't finalized.

I quite like the simplicity

I quite like the simplicity of 4. It's a nice, clean design that doesn't look like it would get snagged on anything or get too much in the way of the user.  Also, I'm glad people pointed out that there were numbers, I would have totally never seen them otherwise :)

This is a nice batch indeed,

This is a nice batch indeed, but 8 from the top and 5 at the bottom are the best ones, imo.

Of the tower shields I like

Of the tower shields I like no 7 best. It looks kinda tribal without being too overdecorated with spikes and stuff. Also it still looks handy.

Of the round shields I like no 11 best. For the same reasons.

Hey, fantastic shapes, they

Hey, fantastic shapes, they are all very interesting, hard to choose.

For tower I would prefer 1, it´s kinda simple but also very unique. Fits perfect for edged orc style I think. 

For normal shield I like 2s, it has this animal shape, which will stand it out against all other shields, giving a mindable, even iconic shape for the shield. Second choice would be 9s, also fitting for the rest of armor and more tribal.

I like 3 for small and 20 for large. They both share the same heavily layered design flavor as the orcish shield from Skyrim, but are still uniquely shaped.

17 or 18 would be nice for the small one, and the fourth one for the big.

I agree there, those two look good.

Well my favorite one is 10th,

Just my 5 cents

Well my favorite one is 10th, tower style like original.

We can interpret as depiction of Malacath the god king of orcs. But maybe in a bit less "comic" depiction (I couldn't find better word), a bit more realistic than such a stylised version. Now it fits more into MW deadric shield. Maybe more sth in that direction. Still stylised but not that much. Also what I remember orcs were craftsmen of blacksmithing, so forging such hard thing like face is good indication of their skills. It called orcish shield anyway. It doens't have to be like vanilla, but it would be nice to make some connection.

We have already face on chest area, so some facial expression on shield could be interesting too.

And you can always add some similar patterns from armor into shield (some visual links, just to keep it consistent). Like you did with 8th or like in round shield examples.

8 or 9 & 12 or 18

8 or 9 & 12 or 18

They're ornate enough and match the style of the Armor.

I love the way they turned

I love the way they turned out, fitting with shapes and colour, except one thing - the grip. Could you make it more like a real shield, with the hand actually going inside the shield boss (that's its purpose after all), instead of being gripped like a reverse trash can cover?

Photo reference:


I don't like the idea of the small shield being conical at the front and having a flat back of planks. It makes it really chubby looking, and will seem heavy and unwieldy to a point of sillyness in the game.

Here's what a kalkan looks like inside:
