Pauldrons done.


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.........

You do look quite mean. But those pauldrons are nice! I do hope you are feeling better.

I am the wolf at your door, I am the tooth in your rope. I am Yusef the Iron Fisted. Grrrrrr! Actually, this "look" works really well when I am instructing...they don't doze off!


Though I expect you saw right through it Jenn. Come to think of it though, I AM rather hungry, but not for raw meat....I hear Brenda making pancakes in the other room. And there are mints and strawberry ice cream for desert. That'll do!
