You know, this is one of the oldest favorites in my favorites list, it was only this year though that I gained a proper appreciation for how absolutely incredible that pollaxe is. I've been doing some study of arms and armor this year and I must say, that's one of the most accurate renditions of one I have ever seen. It catches both how relatively short the haft is and how surprisingly thick.

I love it. I have no criticism other than I think that the shaft for that pole-axe is a bit too thick. Also, above the circular gaurd, the wooden shaft looks white. Unless, of course, it was made of metal. But that would make the weapon extremely heavy at the top.

Wow, super cool! I always imagined the night watch of AnkhMorepork like this. Do you read Terry Pratchett?

This is fantastic! I love the look of the armor, it feels very authentic.

Would you mind if I did a sketch based on this pic?

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges [link] (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)
