Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

For the sake of not stalling the game further I’m going to go ahead and forfeit my turn to the next in line. The last two weekends to get something posted have been a bust and work will have me swamped this weekend.

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

I’m up. I attempted to get something this past weekend but we had a near constant rain. Stay tuned!

I’ll take it Peter should Greg’s contact or Ghostsoldier not want it.

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

Nice! This might be my favorite one that we’ve done to date. I just wish I’d had had the time to kit up for it. I love that we are building actual in world function into this challenge.

Re: Boromir bag build

Really cool. Maybe not canon but it sort of puts me in mind of a Middle Earth version of a Roman pera bag. I could see the common Gondorian foot soldier carrying a plainer variant of this for field rations and the like.

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

Not my finest, but been busy, running out of light today, and snow/sleet the next few days soooo... Also think my lens was smudged, sorry for the greasy lens effect. 65UIR4hsRyM https://youtu.be/65UIR4hsRyM Bollocks. That was very fine indeed. I nearly followed your take with my entry and used my d...

ZH9iqNk_LjA https://youtu.be/ZH9iqNk_LjA I was seeing if I could put the arrow in the O. No dice but not to shabby considering I’ve hardly drawn the warbow all winter. I did manage to nail the two overlapped sections of privacy fence together though. EDIT: Just so no one thinks I’m a wasteful range...

Re: Tolkien Fandom Oral History Collection

Much though I would like to do this I fear I’m not the orator Greg or Eric are enough to do a three minute statement on my love of Tolkien’s works justice. I do hope any who attend will be able to post their statement here. I have no doubts we will be well represented.

Nah, give it another go in the morning light I say. If you haven’t already maybe try Odigan’s approach and come straight down?

Re: Boromir bag build

Not sure if it’s just me but looking at the ends it appears to be stitched and constructed in a style similar to a portmanteau. If you zoom in close you can see the stitching and the ends seem to suggest a duffel bag type shape to my eye. I may be imagining it or it could just be folded and stitched...

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

Good challenge! I loved this one. Took me quite a few times. https://youtu.be/QxqWyStrDnE Glad you enjoyed it. I thought it might prove a fun break from the sequential cutting we normally do. After all a Ranger may not always have the benefit of dynamic movement. Regardless of blade preference you ...

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

A study in simple mechanics for my challenge. The big learning tool with bottle cutting is primarily about edge alignment IMO. The rule is simple. A straight drawing slice and the bottle must be completely severed in two. No rearing back just pull the sword through the target. Forgive the kilt, we’r...
