Ateliers Nemesis Elven Longsword (Epee Eldar)

Recommended Posts

So, I'm unhappy with this. It's just too heavy for me to wield the way I like to fight, and the hilt is cast from a rubber that's a little too soft for my liking. Rather than take a crack at rehilting it, I'm just going to offer it up here and see if anyone else is interested.

 

It's been carried (never swung) on a couple short NPC roles. It's still flawless and pristine. It's also perfectly balanced (tipping point is right where the quillions end on the blade) and beautiful. It's just not exactly what I want. :(

Google Translate tells me that all says this:

 

This superb sword, handy and light will delight all Eldar (elves)

Like all our swords, this model includes:

  • a point which is designed for thrusting
  • reinforcements solid and flexible across the blade
  • a handful in real walnut lacquered
  • a counterweight in the grip for handling unparalleled
  • a 6-month warranty against all manufacturing defects

 

It was $190 plus shipping, I'd let it go for $175.

That's what she said.

 

 

Those pictures don't do it justice, this thing looks sinfully sexy. If you were at last game you might have seen it around logistics, it's an arresting piece. An instant upgrade in awesomeness.

Not sold!

 

Due to some cash flow issues on the buyer's end, I'm repossessing this sword and it's back on the market!

Damn you!!! I just ordered a custom sword from Iron Liege. I also won't see you till October.

 

I could probably pull the cash together to Paypal you the amount (is Paypal a set fee, or a percentage?)...

Can I offer $125 and a Chapel-de-fer made by Merc's Tailor?

Show me a pic of the helm. :)

 

Paypal takes a percentage.

 

And damn me, I had forgotten that you weren't going to be there in September. I wouldn't have busted my hump getting your scabbard ready today if I'd remembered. :)

If it counted towards XP I might take it off your hands for 200 for a future character concept, heheh... but I can't really justify spending that much on a weapon I know I'd destroy :)

 

I just wanted to comment on the Stormtrooper helmet in the background of that pic... funny. :)

Rich, I can't really see me having a use for that. The only helmet I'm looking for right now is one of the 300 helmets with the black crest for next summer's barbarian.

I find your lack of faith (and craving of stormtroopers) disturbing...

That's my version of "you've got mail..."

Spins the heads of the co-workers if I left the volume up too loud... ;)

Funny thing is, Jim and I now have the sword. Ben is not able to go to the event so he gave the sword to us to bring. We are not going to be able to make it to the event due to us moving into our new place and it needing ALOT of work so as sucky as it is, shit needs to get done and this weekend is the time to do it. Sorry to all who were expecting us BUT even if we did go we would only get our asses handed to us as we (meaning Jim and I) would be the only ones in our group pcing. Also if anyone responds to this message I won't get it any time soon as we have no internet or a computer that works. lol ^_^

I was looking forward to you and Jim killing me at Cairnhold!

 

Have a good time (well, a not-so-stressful time) moving in, I know it's a long-awaited and a good move for you guys. See you on the flip side!
