So the burning questions on everyone’s lips now the initial KS6.66 campaign is over is:
Where are our Shields!
And more importantly what will they look like?

Why would we ask that second question you ask ?

Well we realise that graphically 'KSVI.VIVI might be a difficult fit on the current shield template.
They could change it to standard numbers 'KS6.66' but that’s still 2 more characters.

The new Staff shields/abominations are ...... different!?

They could easily accommodate the extra characters required, So is this the new shield design ?

We don’t often criticise DF, but more and more of the bunnies seem suffer from coughing fits with and undercurrent of 'ugly' when we see them.

If we did not already have the old shields then they would not stick out as much.

We like our shields and would like a KS6.66 shield but we realise that they might be a problem to fit.

C'mon DF spill the shields !

So reluctant to agree with Brer' Rabbitt..but it MUST be KS VI.VI.VI, no other will do.

We need simple images. I doubt anyone would know what those were if they were shrunk down too far.

Or even at full size lol.

I think some kind of a color system would work well, but how many pieces does it need? I am thinking 12 is enough for a good long while.

Liking the idea of putting a KS related iconic image on the shield

We did not back KSI or II - check our shields ;)

KS3 it would be the two headed Croc
KS4 the trebuchet
KS5 Syssuull
KS6 Apex Primordial
KS6.66 the Hellgate

OK so we have picked some of the hard to get/expensive pieces just to stoke the fires of the completionists :evil:

Nothing worse than a reformed completionist :twisted:
Unless it is a rampant insecure completionist then it costs a fortune in therapy consultations and massages.
Not to mention a loft full of previous obsessions .......

I agree it is probably time to redesign the shields to make them a more long-lasting mark of wallet doom.

The shields are not bad, but not too far away is the third row.

Yeah, I am sure they weren't thinking so far in advance when they awarded the first backer shield ;)

We could have been building a castle, or a hero, or any number of things - no saying they have to be in a line - it could have been like hangman (add the sword arm, add the shield...)

That being said, they probably have better things to focus creative energy on

The more I think about the shields, the more I wish they weren't shields.

I wish they were smaller pictures of DF terrain, and if you back multiple kickstarters, the badges/shields form a continuous wide image/landscape of DF terrain based on each kickstarter. It wouldn't need to be much, just something that flowed from image to image.

Magic the Gathering has done it before with their lands.
