Shield making and such.....

So Ive never actually played before but ever since i saw the Darkon movie way back ive been wanting to get into full contact larping. And whenever ive the thought of making weapons and such in the past ive turned to you guys. Problem is the very very good tutorials I use to watch on youtube seem to no longer exist. I forget his name but they were made by that one main guy who was featured in the Darkon movie. He was part of that one country that was very roman in style. He had excellent tutorials on making a sword as well as a shield. Right now my main interest is the shield part. I cant find any other videos on taking a wooden shield and making it larp ready with foam padding like how ive seen from the pictures you guys have. My desire is to make a viking round shield. Ya know, the kind with the boss in the middle and you can put your hand in it when you hold it and such. And Im hoping to find a video for shield making like that one guys so that ill have the main idea of it and can adapt it to the style of shield im trying to do. Figured if im to have a chance of making a high quality shield, i have to talk to the darkon people.

Cool, not a lot of traffic here anymore. Message Thom Hitz for an invite to the Darkon Facebook page. Skip Lipman is the guy you are probably thinking of. You can always ask him for the tutorials.
