Hi Everybody!

We just finished our Win More Windlass contest! This contest celebrated our ninth anniversary and kicked off our yearly donation drive. The donation drive was a huge success and now it's time to give some new Windlass Steelcrafts swords away to two lucky winners.




The contest winners have randomly been chosen!

Here they are along with the prize that each has won:



Michael Eging wins the Windlass Steelcrafts Towton Sword:




Colt Reeves wins the Windlass Steelcrafts Italian Cut and Thrust Sword:



--------------------------------------------------

Please take a moment to give your congratulations to the winners!

Thanks goes out to everybody who contributed to our annual donation drive. The proceeds just from this drive paid for this last year's purchase of a new motherboard on the server, the annual hosting bill, a couple other outstanding bills, and even allowed us to keep a bit in our coffers. Our appreciation goes out to myArmoury.com member and previous contest winner Michael Quinlan for donating the two swords given away today.

Expect more contests shortly. I have the prizes already lined up. Fun stuff!

To review the details of this contest, please visit the Contest Announcement.

Whoo hoo, congratulations to those who won. I really love the style of the Towton sword and fancied it as my first bastard sword. Seeing as how it has long been discontinued could anybody recommend a simliar sword?

I almost missed the contest myself. Happened to check out the site last night and saw the deadline was mere hours away, thought to myself "Eh, I won't win, but it's the thought that counts", and entered. I'm glad I did. Wink

Thank you Nathan for running this site and doing the contests, and thank you Michael for providing the prizes. I have to say that like Sean Flynt in the announcement thread, I am surprised to learn how historically accurate (at least in general appearance) this cut and thrust is. That's not something you see out of Windlass every day.

Michael and Colt - you lucky guys - especially Colt, who entered at the last minute.

Here is another photo of a Towton for Michael to contemplate until he gets it in his hand.

Congratulations to Michael and to Colt who was really lucky to come in before the deadline. Wink Laughing Out Loud Cool

Let us know your impressions of the swords when you get them.

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

Colt and Michael,

Congratulations to you! Both of these pieces are appealing; hope to hear a bit of feedback from you. Would imagine that Michael will be receiving a few PMs about he can dispose of that Towton!

And to Michael Quinlan ... Thanks for your generosity!

Regards,
Dan
