... now with 35% more arrogance!

Not really much of a "content" post. I just needed some sword images that weren't restricted for copyright reasons, for future illustration purposes... and I thought "I'll just make some."

Models were made in Wings 3d, then imported into Google Sketchup to get the line drawing look, then finished off in The GIMP. When I need one or two for a special project, I'll customize it in The GIMP. Preferably, at some point, I'll get my scanner out of storage and get a working printer/fix one of the two I have, so that I can do the customizing manually.

I started by sizing the blades proportionally, starting with a 1-unit blade and increasing by one unit for each blade. The dagger is on the far left, short sword comes next; great sword is on the far right.

You guys can fight over what to call the other two blades.

  1. Sword names are arbitrary anyway. However, there does seem to be a distinction between a "great sword" - pommel reaches your armpit, and a "two handed sword" - pommel reaches your lips.

    The smaller sword used in two hands but just functional in one, is a longsword, or bastard sword, or sword of war.

    So, I would name from right to left, "two handed" "great" "long".

    What I don't see is a regular one-handed sword.
