Re: Art thread? Might take some fun small requests if people want.

You have a fun and interesting style that would lend itself well to book illustration among other genres. Keep it up! I, like you, enjoy drawing Dwarves and Hobbits most of all. I have even done quite a few sculptures of them...something I need to get back to doing as soon as I can! Keep it up you a...

Re: Waterproofing Leather?

All great replies, fantastic information running the gammit of methods and preferences. I fall into line with Elleth, Taurinor and the rest who prefer the combination of Bee's wax and Neatsfoot oil, and have used Mink oil for waterproofing with good results in the short term. you can keep it viable ...

Re: An update from Ringulf

Thanks all! We kind of live in a state of quasi preparedness. Everything down here is tryin' to kill ya! If it is not the flora it's the fauna! I mean I don't have to run from Grizzlys, but I have been chased by a few hogs in the preserve next to me. The weather can be quite an interesting thing dow...

Re: Dwarves and Elves in Norse Myth

Wow, I took a while to get around to this post! I found the "Catalogue" a while back when I was doing the research to support the Norse view of Dwarves and their relationship to Norse society for some persona work in the SCA. His (Prof. Tolkien's) dwarves were based on much of the Norse an...

An update from Ringulf

Hello all! I wanted to give a little update on things and let you know what your Naugothrain has been up to. Well, ...What can I tell you? Life in the wide world goes on much as it has this past age, full of its own comings and goings...oh wait, wrong story! Well almost. Several things have been occ...

Re: New "Old" guy

Wolfgar! So nice to have you back! I have wondered about you and hoped you were well! I too had taken a "Holiday" from many of my activities able to only focus on one at a time for a bit but I have become very interested in bushcraft and Bushcraft skills so I have been around much more oft...

Re: A bit of Shire goodness

No, I am not, I never went for the additional training either, for those same reasons! Pilots do run in my family. My Great Grandfather was a pilot in the port of Saint John's in Newfoundland. He died in the performance of his duties. In transfering from one ship to another via breeches bouy, the tw...

Re: Sword Scabbards the inexpensive way

This Necro as you put it is also timely as the project I was doing fell by the wayside while trying to finish the blade itself. I am using Pete's method now to do the scabbard and have been taking pictures, so we can compare when I get it done!

Re: A bit of Shire goodness

We started a tradition when my kids were young to have goose on Christmas Day. The kids loved it because I always read them "A Christmas Carol" prior to the holiday. They all loved the: "A goose a goose!" part. of course, when you pay that much for a bird (later I would bag one a...

Re: A bit of Shire goodness

Now I am not quite sure if turkey or their feathers are mentioned( perhaps in Ithilien?) and I think we have discussed it before being a New World Fowl, (Rehashed ad nausium in the SCA) but this would lend itself marvelously to Turkey (or European fowl of choice) and cranberry (or one of the myriads...

Re: Bracer build from youtube

I like the design, though I can enjoy and am not vehemently opposed to the angular nature of all things Dwarven as proclaimed by Weta and PJ, I think there is a lot more to being a Dwarf than straight lines and intricate geometric patterns. Tolkien's basis for the Dwarves culture was a combination o...

Re: Dwarven Bocksten Inspired cloak

Nice work getting out in the icky weather, and nice pictures, as well! Couple thoughts about some of of your observations - It was so windy on top of the ridge that it was hard to stand up, the cloak still kept me warm, the only problem I had was it billowing out and letting in the cold air, my sol...

Re: The Picnic Roll – middle earth carry in less than 10 minutes

On my last trip in kit I wanted to take supplies with me and wear my Bocksten cloak, but I only wanted to bring enough supplies for an afternoon on the trail. Up until now I've used a rucksack, which is difficult to make work with a cloak. Here's what I did: Step 1: Cut a small piece of oilcloth ca...
