I'm all about low cost. For this project I went ahead and decided I'd use pallet wood, because for the most part paint doesn't care what's under it as long as it can stick to it. I found a couple straight pieces that I removed the nails from, glued together, and then clamped them. I'll let this sit overnight, and start to cut out the shape out once it's dry.
This project was born and based off of the League of Legends item "Heart of Gold". Like many others I was disappointed in the removal of the item . It was amazing! Granted it didn't do "Tons of damage"(Phreak™), but it provided a decent bit of health and was a staple in any tanky support build. It helped supplement the purchasing of wards, turned into a randuins or a locket, and let's not forget: A TURTLE SHELL THAT SHIT GOLD! Bottom line is, I miss it, the community misses it, so a friend of mine LeviticusMaximus(IGN) and I are going to make a tribute to it. We hope you enjoy it and embrace it as our personal final farewell to what was one of the greatest items in the game.
