It looks really awesome!
I suggest you to add some wines to the shield itself, instead - crawling from the top the bottom.
Maybe, even add some battle scars - burnt out places, holes - to the shield because it's wooden.
I'll let this thread get some more feedback, but it's basically good enough to get my approval.
Does it have team colour? It would be really nice, if there was one (experiment with the shield or with the shoulder paddings).
