There I am, looking as mean as I can. Took quite a while to make those pauldrons, the whole story takes up 7 posts and a couple of weeks on my "armouring blog" http://southtowerarmouringguild.blogspot.com/
They didn't turn out too badly...clearly I need to tinker with the templates a bit more...maybe make the back part a bit bigger...little details like that. You can see a nice fan in front...as I swing my hand forward, it folds up like a fan, keeping me from getting stuck in the throat. The one on my left shoulder is shifted up where it is supposed to be...the one on my right shoulder is dragging down a bit. Oh well, normally they would be attached to a gorget or perhaps an arming coat.
That and overcoming the mutha of all colds is what I have been doing for the last week.
kaff kaff. kaff kaff... kaff kaff.........
