If'n you want one, I can make 'em. ;)

Yes, great job on the shaping! And nice T-Stake in the background too. :D
Thank you! And that's my newest toy you're looking at. I just happened to get very lucky at a recent flea market. :D

A few progress pics:

I was making up a template that I intended to use on leather and I came up with a little bit different idea. I used materials close to what they would have had access to historically (yeah, I used wood glue instead of hide or cheese glue ;) ), but the actual accuracy of these is dubious. In this case, I'm okay with that as long as it works. Nice and light, too. Walking around with it on without hitting anything will be another matter, though.


More or less what it will look like with the helm:

Now you just need a "wings, EXPAND" button and the spit launcher, and you're good!



Seriously though, great work!

Darn Vikings... they've been everywhere!

I guess another way of saying that is that you should be careful, because you don't know where they've been! ;)

Nice work ... However, I feel like the membership is being silently taken over by Teutonic influence. Is there no more love for us poor Templar? LOL
