The use of the smaller shldies is very interesting, those are about the same size as what we use for targes when we practice Highland Broadsword in the Academy. How do you find the smaller shldies work in unit formations?Sounds like a good system you have, do you have any video clips online of shows or combat demonstrations by your group?
