Broad and tall, they are based on Roman scuta or medieval pavise shields and offer excellent protection to their users. However, because they are so big and unwieldy, they cannot be used on horseback. They are used by almost all Rhodok troops.
Board shields are probably one of the best shields to use during siege battles, because they will soak up any amount of missile fire when attacking and can form an effective mobile barricade when defending.
There are four different types of Board Shields, which may also receive Modifiers.
