Doesn´t stop people from bullshitting you in the shoutbox. :(
It´s funny, when its about weapons no one seems to care much, but once the talk gets to colors, shitstorm.
And that with a month of time to protest in the thread itself...

I've been in here long enough to honestly not give a dead fly's last hiccup what other people think -_- if they have a problem they can bring it to me, here on the forums, or on skype, whatever they want.

I have an image on my computer (not by myself or even for this purpose) of an awesome blade... Its kinda like the Kopesh, but 'softened' a bit, the end result is *almost* (In my opinion anyway) a combination of Kopesh and Schimitar... Should I just link it in or should I re-draw it myself?

just link it in unless you want it to be a completely different submission possibility (rather than something I'll take into account), if so, redraw it please =3

Also, please people, we need more submissions for the anti-armor contest =P We got about 3 or 4. I'd like to get some flails, some picks, a bar-mace or two in here as well.

Well... Here is the reference image of the blade (I cut it down to focus on the weapon itself... Please ignore the tainted Japanese School-girl):
Image

I'm am planning a re-draw, with side-by-side comparisons with the Scimitar on one side, and a 'true' Khopesh on the other with the 'hybrid' version in the middle... Also, I'm gonna try and dig up the "Siege Axe" design of Tyrel's from when he was in Dragoneye... before he disappeared...

Alright, if you can get them before the dead line then I'll put them into the contest.

Okay, I finished the 'comparison sketch'. The MIDDLE design is the new one I came up with in an attempt to 'merge' the current top two designs: http://imageshack.us/f/808/swordconcept.jpg/

I *was* gonna post an actual image, but it got cut off... So the link will have to do for the 'full' version. That said, here is a smaller pic of my design by itself:

Image

One thing that I didn't bring up in the notes on the linked image: The blade is designed for versatility of use, meaning the theoretically, the hand-grip could be removed and the blade attached to the end of a pole to create a 'matching style' sword-staff. Last of all, the name "Amavardian Sabre" is far from final, its just what I took to calling it as I was working on it, I think it has a nice ring to it though...

JD

PS: I should have that "Siege Axe" concept available soon... Should I post it here or wait for the new poll/thread?

well -shit-

Okay, I apologize to everyone -_-; I didn't realize editing the poll and adding the new option would erase all the old results >_<; I'll extend the poll for another week.

Old vote had 26 votes, Khopesh was winning with 10 votes, Scimitar with 9, Blade-Club had 4, Cutlass had 3, Arahk had 1 as far as I can recall.

Kopesh had 10, Scimitar had 9. I remember because I just checked those two this morning because I'm still deciding which of those to vote on... *too many choices*

I would go with the Amavardian Saber because it is more of a customized design combining both of the two popular swords. Heck, with this design we could use it like a machete to clear brush for trailblazing.

My submission to the 'Heavy/anti-armour' weapons category is ready... I present the "Amavardian Siege-Axe", Its a war-hammer and battle-axe in one!

Image

Please note that with the shaft, when I say "adjustable" I mean as in slightly different variants based on shaft length, not that the shaft of every weapon will be adjustable 'on the fly'...

I´d rather had a spike instead of an axe there. The hammer´s good but with an spike its easier to pirce through a thick armor than with an axe blade.

Though now that we got golem with hands we might want to think of a golem weapon for it to carry and fight with. And such a waraxehammer or warspikehammer weapon in golem size would be a good weapon to a) fight other golems and b) fight flesh enemies. It should be carried with one hand though so that the free hand can either use another weapon or is free to grab or toss something like slwo enemies or rocks, etc.

Edit:

We do have build the golem house thingie we had planned right? Or did we forgot that? Now that we finally have a golem we don´t have the facility to keep it in? oO
