Been away from Blender for waaaay too long but managed to find the time to squeeze in one of KT's awesome exercises and wow! Firstly, there certainly much to learn with 2.8 (I'm running Beta, now).
I immediately recognized some of the subtle differences in just the migration from Alpha to Beta, based on this tutorial but generally, I was able to anticipate some of the changes and continue forward with almost no hesitation. It's been a very long time since my last Blender exercise so I'll have to give the credit to Kent for such a comfortable walk through! The materials are just basic procedural colors but being a shield, however ornate, is till pretty basic and that's what this old man was looking for today!
