Re: A Dwarven Sword? What do you think of this?

Going to be totally honest with my opinion here as I've just read your intro post and think that you're open to it. Please don't be discouraged as it's simply my opinion. It depends on what you are wanting to achieve in your portrayal. You're still working on the details but the first question you n...

Welcome to the forums! Looking forward to seeing more of your work if that costrel is aught to go by.

Re: A large leather barrel costrel.

This is really nice work.

The size isn't a bad thing given that many trail meals require water to cook.

Re: MERF Random Adventure Pictures

I think I mentioned it over on the other site but I love all of those photos. While one might not immediately think of Australia as a traditional fantasy environment, you have really showcased the natural beauty of your home. Thank you for sharing these photos. I realised years ago that I couldn't ...

Re: Did the Men of Dale have a cavalry?

I had forgotten that drawing - perfect! It appears that King Bladorthfi is something of a mystery, but the consensus seems to be he was a king of men in a nearby region. So those shields on the wall tell us the kinds of shields at least some tribes of men were using, at least in trading distance of...

Open to any criticisms or recommendations on my new garb and weaponry, if you do have a chance to watch my video. Just had a chance to watch your video and really like the lengths you go to explaining your choices to your audience I have three comments and please bear in mind that I'm approaching t...

Re: Did the Men of Dale have a cavalry?

Apologies I typed this up hours ago but had an unexpected party and didn't hit send so there have been several answers since which cover the same points. A couple of good questions in there so lets start at the top. The army of Dale is never mentioned as having cavalry and given it's location and f...

Re: War knife of the Wægmundings

Thank you everyone, there's a real wonder in watching something that only exists in your imagination come into existence. THAT WAS FOR YOU!?!?!??! It is! I'm definitely in Greg's 50% camp and there will be a few more items coming from Gulli and other masters in this theme and at least one lesser kno...

War knife of the Wægmundings

A long term commission from our very own Weyland. Beorning master smith Gulli has just finished work on a relic, the Wyrmslēan. I first contacted him years ago with the dream of creating a mythopoetic armament of Beowulf. For several reasons I decided on the seax that he uses to kill the Dragon in t...

Re: Medallion of Thrór

So, my jeweler friend who made my version of the Dunedain star has recently started making more Middle Earth themed items. He made this medallion on a whim I offered to share it on his behalf to those who appreciate such things. It is 6 grams of silver cast using the lost wax method. It features the...
