    @Fox: Aluminum? Steel is real!

    • Fox
      Fox

      The shield is steel. At 2′ by 4′ it will already be over 20 lbs. That’s not heavy, until you have to carry it everywhere.
      For the trim, adding another 3/16ths of steel would make the shield too heavy. Aluminum was chosen for this purpose.

        Which is probably why most shields were smallish or made of wood πŸ˜‰ The rest of the time, those guys were incredibly strong.

          That’s absolutely why they were. The one I’m designing would be considered a pavise. It rivals the size of the Roman scutum, which were made of wood.

          But they had to haul their shields for miles, move them quickly, hold them upright for long periods of time and use them to save their lives against a myriad of sharp, metal objects approaching them at a high velocity.

          The only thing I have to deflect with my shield is dude bros and drunk chicks. Tacti-cool, not tacti-cal.

    could have a fox and leopard as asymetric supporters (the animals on the side that frame the shield) like how Canada has a Unicorn and Lion. Maybe have a little hamster bishop-thing on the top as the crown/coronet piece?

    I will admit, if nothing else, it make me wanna make one just for funsies.

    Seley looks all surprised like someone drew that picture of her spontaneously, but she’s the one who drew it!

    I usually prefer symmetrical, but that asymmetrical superimposed paw looks absolutely fantastic. I also love the inverted shield/paw. Looks like something for a superhero.

    • Mandy

      I still may use those for something, I liked ’em too. πŸ˜€

        Asymmetrical designs are not as easy to pull off as purely symmetrical ones, but I think you managed to with that fox/leopard tracks combination.

        • McMashMead
          McMashMead

          It does look good, but the second symmetric design appeals more to me than asymmetry. However what appeals to matters not. Especially since I have no sense of style

    I love the block drawn fox head. It reminds me of the old Fox fishing lure logo.

    So do you plan on taking Fox’s family name or keeping your own? Or hyphenating, even?

    • Mandy

      We’re keeping our names.

    I love all of this. I do agree that the asymmetrical paws look better, though. And I like the suggestion that the leopard and fox hold up the shield. And the hamster bishop! I’m sure Fox will get over it. Besides, it’s just for fun anyway, right?

    • Cray Z. Bouy
      Cray Z. Bouy

      Maybe you can make the fox track smaller and place it on top of the leopard track? Foxes are smaller, after all. And that way it can be symmetrical.

    I love this webcomic and I love your relationship, guys…

    Also, for future reference, where the hell did you guys meet and how did it all happen? I swear I’m not settling with anyone ever until I find a Woman like Seley, I want a relationship as awesome as yours~ XD

      It was Mandy’s fault, and as for the story, let’s just say there’s a producer of bad relationship drama shows for the CW that’d love to get our story.

    Hmm… comments are closed on the last comic.
    I have just one bit of advice to share on the medieval-themed wedding: remember that giving weapons as gifts to the new couple is terrible luck (an omen that the couple will fight and/or kill each other) and being armed during your wedding ceremony is almost as bad for the same symbolic reasons.
    Now, the Best Man and Maid of Honor? Traditionally their roles were to protect the couple during the ceremony, as bodyguards. Arming them is perfectly appropriate. πŸ˜‰

    Hamsters get no respect…

    I’m all for the “crossed tools” look, though, having once slapped together a quick logo showing a crossed screw-driver and sledge-hammer over an upright soldering iron. It was supposed to be humorous… I was a TV repairman.
