In close collaboration with the DOTA 2 game designers at Valve, the 26" (66cm) physical Vanguard Shield has been designed by the same Weta artists and craftspeople who work on their movies, using the same techniques used to make screen props for movies like The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, District 9 and Avatar.
The shield will be made from urethane/fibreglass and is painstakingly hand painted to make an outstanding display piece for your wall. Comes with a wall bracket for display.

The hellwether emblem of the Vanguard is familiar to all who fight and bleed in the contested lands. The original shield, battered and worn, was found in a hoard of dragon’s gold, dug free from the deepest and oldest layers of treasure. Inscribed with ancient runes of protection (roughly translated by Ultimyrian scribes as, “Here no blade shall drink.”), this shield of the Vanguard was discovered to provide its bearer with magical protection against damage. Now, for a price, these special runes can be inscribed upon lesser shields, thus transforming them in power and likeness into the Vanguard of old.
