Piece of tank armor
This is a very common shield used by a lot of heroes. Pieces of tough composite metal are often scavenged from old rusting machines that belong only in the scrapyard. A common make-shift shield that traders often sell to heroes is the plating off the side of a misused tank. Usually the trader visits a scrapyard and can find plenty of pieces like this that are not too rusty and none that a bit of polish can't improve enough to sell. If a hero is lucky he will have paid for a piece of metal that can be used as a tough shield but if he is not then he could end up with a shiny piece of rust. Due to its hard metallic nature, it can also be used as a weapon and can severely injure anyone smashed with it.
