With all the "professional" lighting rig I have, I'm still a "non league" photographer
Anyway, I hope that you manage to see a bit beyond the CRAPPY pics

Dont know if its a photo effect but the shield looks satin/gloss...should it be that way?

On a lighting point of view, still the set up looks to be strong and you are getting a greenish thinge on the metal [normally that comes from neon light], are you using teh free energy saving lights provided by our PM? Are you diffusing the light ?
On a historical note, but I forgive you for the urgency on the piece, that shield is an Eastern European style, more associated with Hungury, Poland, Rumanians, Russians,Teutonics etc ... but the Knight might have been German and coming from a Crusading adventure with the Teutons, we now the Orders were friends ... so we can never be certain hux!
Typical shield would have been more the heather style, but as I said above, Germans started using this particular style and yep Germans were one of the strongest languages in the Order ...
