Not all shields are made for defense, and the selection of miniature shields offered here at Dark Knight Armoury are proof positive of that point. Instead, these impressive little accents are made for display, possessing a decorative design that is quite the sight see, while their smaller size makes them easier and more convenient than their full-sized cousins. In essence, a mini shield is the perfect portable medieval decoration, as well as a great choice for the collector or enthusiast who has severe space limits. These miniature shields do not lack for detail, though, as even with a small size, they still feature an impressive level of detail that makes them every bit as appealing as their larger cousins. The shields are almost all offered in the classic kite or heater shape, which is that of a triangular shield, although many differ greatly in design, depicting such famous symbols as the red cross of the Knights Templar, the three lions of Richard I, the coat of arms for Toledo, Spain, and even the coat of arms for the knight, El Cid. Miniature shields make for great gifts, and they are perfect for a younger crowd, especially for those who might not be able to handle a full-sized shield just yet. Plus, they are also fairly low in cost, which makes the miniature shields offered here at Dark Knight Armoury quite the bargain, especially when it comes to picking up a novel and new little accent for your medieval decor.
