    Those Gimli pauldrons are awesome! Where are they from, or are they homemade?

    Here you go folks. Just uploaded some pictures of two new quiver designs. They are both side quivers. The first I call the Stickup Quiver. It's designed to be worn hanging off a belt. On the side is a metal spike that can be lowered and snapped into position such that when stuck in the ground it supports the quiver with arrows. Very usefull at the archery range.

    The second design is patterned on a 15th century Italian quiver. I plan to use it with my Moorish personna though, and as the Moores did not have anything living in the art work due to religous reasons and because I had a new stamp and was looking for a project to use it on, I stamped a geometric pattern on it. The backside is not stamped and solid black. The edge has round edge lacing on it. Very tedious to do but also very pretty when finished. I plan to make a strap for it that allows me to either hang it off my belt or over my shoulder when in use. I also want the strap to allow the quiver to worn backpack style when carrying to and from the range.

    Enjoy. Comments welcomed.

    I think Christophe meant to include a link to his gallery. Here it is:

    Hey Christophe, those Rohan vambraces look fantastic! I love the color, and the horse design is beautiful! Makes me wish I had another costume so I could order another set of vams (or some other accoutrements!)...

    There is some nice stuff there. Lots of work to make! I would take issue though, with the elbow cops in the first reference. The insides stick out quite a bit and, it would seem to me, catch on just about everything in the neighborhood. This vendor has better elbow cops on his site. I particularly liked the Hunter curass. Again, tons of work to get it to come out right and nice.
