This goes to Palcadon (also wrote you a mail including Quellion's picture):

You stated that you wanted to do the Mitharim dwarves, so if this still is ok, can you perhaps think about a good Coat of Arms/sign? Quellion is currently finishing a pic of Brok Strongarm's ship discovering Denilou (you can read about that on the site), and as he is a Mitharim dwarf, we'd need a symbol/coat of arms for the flag on top of the ship and something for the two large sails. Any ideas - we'd need this information asap, as Quellion would like to finish it soon? -Please let me know if you have a proposal here:)

Funny you should mention this, as I am starting to outline some ideas on the Mitharim tonight.

Off the top of my head.....

A shield shape, dark blue background on the top half, orange on the bottom coming to flames where it meets the blue ( signifying the flame of the forge), along the top a intertwining ribbon of gold,silver and dark gray (representing the metals: gold, mitharil and iron), in the middle a black anvil ( set against the orange) with a hammer atop it made of silver with the head atop the anvil and the handle angled toward the right.

The hammer should probably look a bit like the one Faugar gave to Urtengor.

That sums it up, if that would be acceptable.

Thanks Capher.

Sometimes my imagination can get me into trouble. Thats why I try to drain it into RPG and fiction material.  :)

Thanx, Palcadon! Hope Quellion can realize this design in the pic;)

Ok, great description :)   I'm going to do a fast colour sketch of the CoA alone, to see if I pictured it right, and will post it here.

Eventually I'd suggest to put the hammer in the center. THen its head doesn't hit the anvil but it would look more balanced I guess.
Quellion, when you're finished(and Palcadon satisfied), can you send me a bigger version of this, I could use it directly for a shield texture like most of the other CoA when needed. Given there's some kind of entry coming up soon! ;)

Yup, that was the idea. It's going to be great, having this pic in one of those cool 3D shields :)

Why is it everyone else can see these pictures but me.  All I see is a broken link.  This is not the only time this has happened.

Quellion: That is just about how I pictured it. Very nice work.
Thanks.
If it is OK with the rest of those concerned, I wait with baited breath for the 3-D sheild too.

Thanks again Quellion.

*pouts*
Hey, Koldar, do you have a tutorial for making the shields? If you're not wanting to do them I can try...

The time consuming part is generally doing the texture for the shield. That's why I offer doing the shield here freely because the texture is already there!! ;)
When I read shield descritpions about thousands of riders in full armor on red flame-patterned ground I generally panic and don't do it, yet.

Tutorial, not yet, strted one somewhere...

By the way, is it ok then with the hammer that way? I've made two versions so you can compare.

I still like the left one best. I think the hammer should be in the center of the anvil.
