There are cool things to do with a shield, but for actual mechanics, here's what I want:

- Position based spell shield that reflects or absorbs skill shots/line nukes (Lux lazer!) to fire them back a second or two later.
- Throwing a buckler that arcs out like Diana's Q, then back again.
- Bash a fool with a shield, then smack them away. Knock up into an optional knockback, basically.
- Some sort of damage link skill, you reduce damage taken for an ally but take some yourself, and vice versa. Could offer some damage reduction as well, particularly for AoE. Would be a nice ultimate.

Isn't that the fantasy of the shield? Or am I alone in that?
I have to agree. It would be sweet if a champion had a kit that revolved around the shield.
I don't know anything about how hard it would be to implement, but I imagine a passive that blocked or reduced damage that hit from the front similar to how shaco's passive increases damage dealt to the back would be thematic. Additionally an ult that creates a temporary wall (in the form of a shield) that allies can pass/shoot through but enemies can't would be pretty sweet.

Imagine blocking one of the sniping ults with a well placed shield ult saving an ally that would have died otherwise. Nothing says shield more than that.

There's a lot more than just these two, that's why I didn't bother listing all the artists lol.

Leona does too, she bashes the enemy in the face with her shield exactly like Pantheon.
