Hey guys. This is my first post. Thought I'd share this with you.

Thanks for many years of glorious infotainment on all things medieval and warfare. I wish you all happy holidays and a wonderful 2015.
May your blades stay sharp and may your minds stay even sharper. May your bodies stay strong and may your hearts stay filled with passion.

Cheers!

Ps... here, have some cat armor.

Unfortunately I did not make these beautiful pieces. I do have a cat though. I wouldn't try to get him in there even if I wore armor myself.

The name of the artist is Jeff de Boer.

His samurai cat is particulary detailed and nice! He also does mice. Rhyming like a dork. Here is more of his work.

The cat is both a warrior and a scholar. I'd be honored to fight alongside mine.

Thank you Greg! I only needed to edit it about 15 times. I'm a noob that way. Glad you like it!

Really nice armour, good lines, and a very good first post ....... do try to catch up to me in number of posts. Wink Big Grin Cool


You could take the cat to the vet to put him in a coma so that you could put him in the armour safely and watch his reactions after he wakes up. Laughing Out Loud

It might " NOT " be as easy catching him again to get the armour off him. ( Just joking as doing this for real might be a little bit cruelty to animals sort of thing ).

Oh, maybe a stuffed Garfield could fit into the armour(S) ?

The Gothic armour with the bat on the helm ..... WOW: This could be Batman's " BATCAT ".

The Japanese armour: This could be " MEOWSASHI ' the samurai cat. Razz Wink Big Grin Cool

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

So, in keeping with the many posts on various arms and armour fora about "which sword / armour would win in a match up between warriors of different nationalities and eras" ...

Samurai Cat vs. Gothic Jousting Mouse ... Who would win?

Thank you Jean!

Going to Mordor to destroy that bloody ring sounds easier if you ask me Wink

You have a dangerous mind. No kidding.

Haha! Indeed! Taking his "CATana" in a battle of 9 lives and lots of sleep. If he fails..... "haraKITTY"
