The Harmandir Sahib (Punjabi: ਹਰਿਮੰਦਰ ਸਾਹਿਬ also Darbar Sahib (Punjabi: ਦਰਬਾਰ ਸਾਹਿਬ, IPA: [dəɾbɑɾ sɑhɪb]), also referred to as the Golden Temple, is a prominent Sikh gurdwara located in the city of Amritsar, Punjab, India. Construction of the gurdwara was begun by Guru Ram Das, the fourth Sikh Guru, and completed by his successor, Guru Arjan Dev. In 1604, Guru Arjan Dev completed the Adi Granth, the holy scripture of Sikhism, and installed it in the gurdwara. In 1634, Guru Hargobind left Amritsar for the Shivalik Hills and for the remainder of the seventeenth century the city and gurdwara was in the hands of forces hostile to the Sikh Gurus. During the eighteenth century, the Harmandir Sahib was the site of frequent fighting between the Sikhs on one side and either Mughal or Afghan forces on the other side and the gurdwara occasionally suffered damage. In the early nineteenth century, Maharaja Ranjit Singh secured the Punjab region from outside attack and covered the upper floors of the gurdwara with gold, which gives it its distinctive appearance and English name of "Golden Temple".
The present day Golden Temple was rebuilt in 1764 by Maharaja Jassa Singh Ahluwalia (1718–1783) with the help of other Misl Sikh chieftains. Between 1802–1830 Ranjit Singh did the sewa of adding gold plating and marble to the gurdwara, while the interior was decorated with fresco work and gemstones.
This is a simple holster, which I made very quickly out of a single piece of scrap leather, not long before I had to use it at a LARP. It's meant to hang from the belt on the right side, the gun being drawn with the right hand. The opposite could easily work too, but that wouldn't look as good.
This is not really a piece that I'm very proud of, look-wise. But I do like the fact that it works very well, and that it's made out of a single, small piece of leather, which otherwise would be pretty useless.
From left to right, the pictures show - the gun in the holster - the cut I've made into the side of the holster, to better fit it around the flintlock. - the holster's other side, again revealing how simply a thing this is.
With a soft shhhh of the finger's the orcs get moving, slowly walking along the hulk of steel and junk laid out along the area. Their mission one so simple and soooo much to enjoy. They get closer and closer to the rumbling of metal that was firing off, the distraction clearly heard as these orcs got behind the enemy lines and with a last minute roar of ," WAGHHHHHHH!" they slam into their foes vehicle's. Clamping bombs, mines, launching rockkits and slamming rokkit hammer's they level numerous Imperial tanks as they then step back into the fields of steel and move to the next pray...
This is a glass bottle that I altered to look antique. The medicine label is an authentic, not a copy. "This is a test solution and not for medicinal use. To be used only as directed by your physician. ANTIDOTE: Give large quantities of white of eggs or milk. Call a physician at once."
I distressed and colored the bottle, distressed the label further, stained the cork and added some grunged up cotton inside the bottle.
Decided to do something rash today and embark on cleaning up my project area. I found a coffee cup with random left over parts from my Portal projects that have been sitting around for a good while now.
I found I had just enuff parts for another black portal sphere. I went for a Bizzaro-Wheatley (black and red vs. white and blue). I'm still not sure if that would be the more evil or the more good version of Wheatley...or maybe a really smart "Marvin" core.
Anyway, after I finished throwing it together I took this pic to post. When I saw it, I had a new idea. A quick N7 logo and a little extra scar/armor detail painting and this turned into my Renegade Shepard AI Core
3D printed parts (Vero Black and Vero White) Assembled with paper clips, super glue, Red LED, CR2032, and painted with enamel paints.
Now a gift for my friend (who cosplayed Shep with me at PAX)
