Nail->head there Loosh. I am most certainly a berk
Thanks for the well wishes guys
100% a lucky escape. Ordered 4 more fire extinguishers before touching anything even vaguely hot again
Hope your neighbour is ok now Alienscar. Sounds pretty nasty! We've got a pit too and I've always been careful around not going down in it when there's a fire risk (or gases that are heavier than air). Makes it aĺl the more odd as to my lapse in judgement...
Hands I'm extra careful around already (again thanks to hurting them before). Messed up some ligaments pickaxing some ground (had surprise rocks in) and had to go easy on the left hand for a month or so. Not sure how people cope so well with just one hand. Every single thing you do is harder. Even just doing the zip up on your trousers (seriously, try it with one hand).
So yeah. Damaging your face messes up your social life (if you have judgemental friends). Damaging your hands messes up pretty much everything (the only hobbies I can think of that don't involve hands are singing and running and I'm no good at either...).
Enough warnings for one day though! here's the latest creation:I forget you're an udlænding. That's a Sleipnir. Quite common around these parts.The Fenrisians, both Kearls and wildlings, use them for recon and warhorses. Trade them with folks in neighbouring systems as well. Not sure how the Crows got them though. Probably stole them I expect.
Thought I'd tie in some more Norse mythology with my dudes. There are a number of mythological animals surrounding Odin, which I've based these guys loosely around. The first of which are his Wolves, Geri and Freki, represented by the Vlka Fenryka. The second of which are his Ravens, Huginn and Muninn, represented by my crows. Another is his mythical steed, Sleipnir, the 8-legged horse. Thought that would be a good basis for a xenos/gene-modified steed of some sort for Kearls and Wildlings
Apologies for the murky pictures. Thanks to my melty camera I've been scrambling to find another setup that works before Iron Sleet's deadline on the 3rd! The above are from my Canon point-and-shoot, and the below are a couple from my mate's phone and some other trials with lighting. Not sure what works best...
Parent's phone (pretty similar to mine, maybe washed out a bit but can't quite work out):
Point-and-shoot (not enough light for this one, although it does look atmospheric):
Point-and-shoot with additional lighting:
Point-and-shoot with attempt at moonlit-look:
