Lances!

With a few other members of Canton of the Towers (in spirit if not the details of geography), we made lances for the Equestrian champions to carry into court.  The base wood is poplar, handcrafted to shape by Clockwork.  The shaft is basically a large wooden dowel, connected by a creation of Peter the Red and also painted by him.  I did the yellow striping and carefully crafted (aka purchased) the rubber tips.  Fancy metal tips coming soon from Donato Favro.

Next step Duncan Kerr will be refining them to make them even spiffier (and hopefully a little lighter)!  The banners in the photos are our championship “scrolls”, those will also be replaced by generic champion banners to be passed on to future champions.
