Today we are taking a look at shields that help you show off your Alliance pride. If you are wanting to represent your faction these are the shields to choose. Head past the jump to see our picks.
Royal Treasury Courier's Shield

While this shield (and it's now unobtainable counterpart the Dwarven Defender) not an exact replica of the Iron Forge guard shield is as close as you can get. Sporting the crest of Iron Forge itself this is a great shield for any red-blooded dwarf. This shield comes as a quest reward from the Alliance-only quest The Mosshide Job in Wetlands.

Aegis of Stormwind

This blue-hued take on the Stormwind Guard's shields is as close to the real deal as you are likely to find. This is a world drop and can often be found on the auction house. (Gold-making Tip: Buy these cheaply on the Horde where they are in lower demand and re-sell them to the Alliance.) (See also Commander's Crest.)
Grand Marshal's Aegis

Royal Crest of Lordaeron

This is one of the most highly detailed, stunning and well-designed shields in the game. If you want to hearken back to a simpler time, a time when Arthas was simply a prince than this is the shield for you. The shield comes out of the Dark Runed Chest available after killing Mal'Ganis in Caverns of Time: The Culling of Stratholme.
We'd love to hear about shields you feel that show Alliance or Horde pride.
