A Falchion and Rondel Dagger Added

A few more items added to the kit - a falchion from Windlass Steel Crafts and a triangular bladed rondel dagger.
Again, nothing to do with painting or gaming, but just a record of sorts of what I've been up to. I actually picked up the sword off of Amazon with free shipping. It got here within a week.
I suppose you can blame my oldest boy for turning me on to Microsoft Paint.NET.
Cheers for now. Not sure when I will pick up a brush again, but best wishes to all of you from the Magic Kingdom.

    1. Appreciate that very much, Christopher. It's great to fell the actual gear on and weight of the weapons. It would take a lot of stamina to fight with these for long periods - it gets overly hot in just a few minutes of exertion for me. Warm regards, Dean

  19. Lovely kit Dean, but I saw at once that the backgrounds must have been shopped - sunshine? In Washington State...? Don't make me laugh!
