[Warfork Fantasy Battles]
Knights of the Hawkbit

I do not like flat backsides of shields, except they are meant to be full metal shields. These look more like wooden shields to me, with some kind of front coverage. So I always ponder with these kind of shields whether to paint the backside in detailed way, after all, in the end you won't see it anyway when looking at the model. But I always end up doing it anyway, because I would know it...

So a light brown base coat, wood grain in two darker browns, and plank lines in a very dark brown later, the backsides of the shields are done.
