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!

Lidi :D

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

Ted is just made for storming up spiral stairs, sword a slashing!

Nah, it's not that high. See study on Wharram Percy villagers here: http://www.britarch.ac.uk/ba/ba8/ba8news.html

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

If I may take the liberty of saying so.

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.
