Great looking shield. Approved. (Teamcolored version is rather nice and could be added to the bundle itself if you want)

    This kite shield is nice, the textures work well - I'd like to use it for my project however the paint on the shield is always yellow so it'd be confusing with player colors - could you upload a Team Colored variant?

    Looks very nice, but it's a Heater Shield not a Kite.

    Same difference though, right? Both have that iconic upside-down teardrop with a flat top.

    I know, but since this is a Diablo 2 recreation, I had to name it like they did. Their kite shield is instead named "gothic shield": http://www.d2tomb.com/images/items/gothicshield.gif
    Fresh TC version, right off the press!

    Are you working on a D2 remake? Or are you making assets for someone else's D2 remake?

    Very nice! Perfect, exactly as requested. This'll look great on my tier 5 melee foot soldiers.

    The Kite and Heater shield are different entities.

    Yes, when I first played Diablo I , I thought those were Kite shields but turns out I was wrong. I do wonder why they changed their name and from when exactly did they start to be called kite shields.

    I was, a long time ago, but I saw how much work that would be and I scrapped it. I still have much of the Act I terrain though, if anyone is interested :D
    Now I just make these out of nostalgia and because they actually look pretty nice. Diablo 2 has always been a favorite of mine.

    Nice - too bad about that. I almost did that for my project. Maybe one day you'll revisit it or someone else will pick it up.
    I saw a D3 remake in the maps section but it looks like its production went inactive.

    That's awesome, hope you have fun with these. They look great, some of the best quality attachments here on Hive.

    IMHO Hive definetly needs some simple yet practical models like this one. Diversity is a great thing and we already have tons of over-fantasy stuff (I'm not bashing it tho), it's pleasurable to see as beatutiful shield as yours, very useful.

    I'm not trying to be a petty asshole, I'm just being a petty newbie.
    This is a Heater Shield. Not a Kite Shield. A Kite Shield is a giant shield that can cover it's user's entire body.

    He is clearly referring to the Diablo 2 item: Kite Shield (Diablo II)
