And that's about it. Please, DO take the time to download them and view them properly, they've gone all small and squishy on here to make them fit.

And a HUGE thanks to Chris, your work is absolutely gorgeous and has that yummy leather plus metal smell to it that I adore! I am in complete admiration!

Just a wee tip. Generally speaking the sword goes on the oppisite side to the hand that draws it. So if the bear is left handed then the sword should be on his right. Apart from that SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wonder would Mr. Cris be willing to make a Viking sword & saex for my rat? :wink:

I have read that before the Victorians & modern customs / equipment forced us to adopt right handedness, something like 50% of Brits were left handed :D

Ok - thanks for the tip, duly changed! I'm glad you appreciate the cuteness, Panda!

There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

I have to admit, I've kinda 'gone off' the Darkside a bit.

Stewart is jealous. Could you do Norman kit for a pot-bellied monkey? There could be some shekels in it for you.

WM is quite thin really and not really interested in being a Norman.
