Roman Scutum - Metal
During the Roman Empire, Legionnaires used their shield as a weapon just as much as their sword; it was one of the most necessary components when they went into battle. These men often marched 20 miles a day and their shields would easily weigh 20 pounds. When you combine this with the rest of their armor, the average Legionnaire was often weighed down by an additional 70 pounds.
This Roman Scutum-Metal has been designed from the most famous legendary battle shield. Made from 18-gauge steel, this shield is hand-painted with exceptional detail. It is a perfect piece to protect you from spears, arrows, rocks and swords.
