A Shield? What type? what structure? I used a variety of methods for when I did mine.
Again, lamp? what type? think about the structure, then try to break it down into "understandable" forms.

Is your shield a round one with a shield boss? I'd go for a disc with a high number of sides, bevel and extrude. Is it 'oblong' - again a disc, but extruded then thickened.

Thank you both for your help.
The style of shield i'm going for is a viking style shield and the lamp is going to be like a an out door light
