I decided to go with a red and bronze aged look for the shields as these colours complement the bone of the skeletons quite nicely. The red was a real pain as the coverage of the old 'Blood Red' paint is not very good. In the end I mixed some Blood Red with White and painted the shields pink initially and then went over them again with the red. A wash of Rotring brown ink followed by Blood Red highlights completed the look I was after.
