There's this improved buckler by Dread Knight based on Blarumyrran's art. Any view on this if you think the new art is an improvement over the original?
I haven't done a side-by-side yet but if it's an improvement I'll be glad to update the base icon sheet.
For a direct comparison I've opened them up in GIMP on this screenshot: http://gobblin.se/media/media_entries/1996/in_the_process_of_making_a_tr... (45 downloads)
The change is this buckler http://opengameart.org/content/flare-buckler-improved compared to the buckler found in http://opengameart.org/content/osare-weapon-icons
Good difference. I'll patch it into the icon.png and icon.xcf files when I get a moment.
