    Icon12 [MOD RELEASED] Weeags Custom Shields Resource

    Hello all! I been working on making custom shields for the barbaric factions. Hopefully I continue with more factions like Rome and Sassanids. Again I am biased towards the Franks so most of the custom shields were applied to their units and two saxon units. I decided to release it and hopefully continue working on more factions. Again I am not expert in scripting only design. If you want to work together on reskin mods, new units, etc., I can help out in the shield dept or if you want to borrow my shield patterns in this mod go ahead, just let me know. Anyways some pics! Btw used noifs emblem and color change mod.

    UPDATE: I am reworking shields to look more wooden. The old version is still going to be available down below. I have decided to release the shields by themselves for other modders to use on their units, all I ask is for credit if you use them.

    Amazing designs and color combos! Hope you find inspiration for more Saxon units, thanks for sharing!

    Hopefully you can incorporate more of your other shield designs into the wider Germanic and Norse lineups. If I knew what changed in the variantmesh files from R2 to Atilla I could be of more help buti t looks like it's even more jumbled now than it was before.

    Excellent, now make this for every shield unit in the game and release, it will be one of the GREAT mod's of Attila.

    Yes I am working on some Viking shields next. The hardest part for me is knowing what designs to apply to what units. I tend to go with most coolest designs to the more stronger units, but if you have suggestion on what design or colors to use let me know. I want to keep it somewhat historical.

    Well as for the Vikings, any form of ravens is always a solution. Every source describes them that way. I also suggest to look for motives under this: https://www.google.de/search?q=anima...w=1360&bih=631

    For example the Suebi faction symbol of Rome 2 belongs rather in this time period. There is beautiful art in animal style of this period.

    Update: I am in the process of reworking the shields to have a wooden texture as seen in screenshot below the 2 shields front.

    great work! i really like your shield patterns and when creating my viking reskin mod i used some of your shields as inspiration

    but there was one issue i had with your textures: while they worked perfect for small rounds and round curved/reinforced they "wrapped" around the round large flat shield so the back of the shield was a little messy

    i would like to ask for your permission to use your viking shields in my mod when you are done

    Nice additions! Did you add them to the same units as before? This makes the Franks playable for me I couldn't stand the ugly little bucklers they had before lol.

    No, havent quite gotten to the coding. I am still translating the old shields onto wooden look.

    Will you be releasing the wooden shield retexture to replace the old version?
