Beautifully done. Are you going to offer this or your viking spectacle helmet for sale? Though they are well done, I've never cared for your sword designs, but I like your helmets. The only question I have is whether it might not be better without the second extension for the crest. But then again, perhaps that is what makes it unique.

Let me edit in a second comment now that I have viewed the other pictures at your website. The spikey-crest is a bit of a Tower of Pisa - it's leaning to one side.

And why is the title of this thread about an elven non-purebred hound from hell? :D

Hi guys,

Thanks for all the generous comments. Sorry about the spelling error first of all. To answer some of your posts: Yes, the spike on top of the helmet is indeed a bit slanted and this is because it is very hard to get something as small as this to sit still while sculpting in clay form. But I'll try to do a better job next time. As for marketing them, I really haven't got the resources (time and money) to do that right now. So unless some generous souls come along and offer me a partnership, I'm afraid it'll be quite some times before you guys can get your hands on one of those. Sorry! But nevertheless, I'm gonna try my hands on a dwarven beard next. Hopefully I'll have the time to do so in the next few weeks and have some pictures for you guys soon.

Hey Red Bean, I was wondering what type of resources and how much would you need?

That's right. Doing this stuff isn't cheap people.
Donations, or investments, are accepted!

Speaking of, Isaac...maybe taking enough pre-orders
from people could help finance this project.

Just an idea.

*nod* *nod* I haven't even began to enquire about it yet, but because of the complexity of the designs of the helmets, it'd probably cost twice as much to cast as the swords. But anyway, aside from money time is also a problem right now. But we'll see. :)

More grat work Isaac. I continue to be astonished by what you and Jeff do. You guys simply amaze me. How do you find the time, are you, like Sava, cloned so that you can do it all!?

I would be interestd in buying if this were part of a Elven package like helm, sheild, and your elven blade. Now that would rock.
