a little late with this but a fun fact about the 2h mace, the blades were actually obsidian shards collected, sharpened, and carefully attached to the shaft. the idea being when an enemy wad struck, it was like glass shards breaking off to immobilize them. no actual metal was used in the construction of this weapon
Aztec shields were like that because their knowledge metallurgy was limited so they couldn't reinforce wood like the european shields and had to settle for leather. Most of their weapons used obsidian shards as the cutting edge Thanks for the videos i love them :D
Actually, the scale pattern of the medium armor could be the hide of a Wamasu, a large, lighting-breathing reptile native to Black Marsh, sometimes through of as a subspecies of dragon. Alternately it could be snakeskin (They have giant snakes and Lamias in Black Marsh too).
Ayelid king the imperials are the rulers of cyrodil and it was they who first started viewing the argonians as slaves during their war in black marsh but thats what ive read from lore I may be wrong but can always change the name plus it sounds better lol
It is indeed a macuahuitl. Those weapons, though very crude, were known to have a devastating effect on flesh. They were made of a piece of wood on which were placed pieces of obsidian. Obsidian is a volcanic glass known for its extreme sharpness (it's used in surgery as superior quality scalpel). The problem is obsidian is brittle and if the sword was to hit armour, most of the obsidian blade would shatter! It's funny how Argonians use flint in such a similar - and kick-arse- way :-). Thanks for the presentation
+MaistrePathelin yeah the obsidian would probably also shatter if it hits bone but that also makes it even more devastating because a wound from one would probably be impossible to close in time without the victim bleeding out or going into shock. also even if it does shatter on armor can you imagine that shit flying into your face/eyes sure your not turned into shredded meat but your now blind or scarred for life.
+Sebastian Carzola Not a pleasant prospect for the 'brave' conquistadores. Recently, I have learnt that one of the most feared weapons of the native Americans (beside the macuahuitl) was... the sling. They wielded those stone-throwers so well that it affected morale rather quickly. But look where we are: far from our cold-blooded marshfriends and back to reality (there goes gravity ;-) ).
With this, I bid you adieu!
+Faal Konahrikro Bah (The Warlord's Wrath) an ESO Guild If you're referring to the actual macuahuitl (goodness, that's quite a mouthful!), then -yes-, there's historical proof that such a sword did cut a horse's head off. However, the brave Spanish conquistadores liked their armours; obsidian blades didn't. If such blades hit metal, they shattered.
I really enjoy the design; the choice of culture for the Argonians is positively sublime. I like your enthusiasm too. :-)
Anyway, long story, short: flint is not that sharp and is still brittle. But it's the Elder Scrolls and its universe does not reflect ours ;-)
My father's side of the family is actually Aztec and I love learning about their culture and history and makes me sad how not many video games don't really take an Aztec approach but this makes me very happy
If you guus love the argonians as much as I do I have a guild on the elder scrolls called the slaves of cyrodil its an all argonian guild its up and coming as im cirrently withought a laptop but as soon as I get back on I would be happy to add any of fellow hist brothers and sisters
Wow this guy actually has some knowledge on actual weapons and armor...I'm impressed you knew what a kukri was, most people who make videos like this have no knowledge of weapons outside of fantasy games. props dude
yeah I have trouble pronouncing the name macuahuital as well x.x ah well it doesn't matter its still one of the most savage and awesome melee weapons of all time and whatever tier this is that argonian greatsword is gonna be mine. I must get it as soon as possible when I get the game even if I just end up having it taking up inventory space until I get to the proper level.
Learning how to draw cartoon animals from the farm is not such a difficult task! Weve grown up surrounded by them! Farm animals are everywhere: In blockbuster movies, childs books, greeting cards. their shapes and images are printed in our minds!
In this section, I will show you how to determine what are the physical uniqueness of each animal and how to work with them. Then, you can practice drawing each cartoon character using basic shapes.
You will have the opportunity to make nice illustrations, practice sketching and cartooning using short easy lessons and complete your creation using a drawing software to create vector art if you want to! Cartoon drawing is really fun once you get into it!
Dont be afraid to try until you get it right. This method is really simple, but requires practice and observation. So, sit back and relax. Learn how to draw animals from the farm and start your journey on a good note!
Lets try s few basic characters to get started! :)
A cute turkey to begin with.
In this first tutorial, you can learn how to draw a fun turkey mostly made from small rectangles and large circular shapes. The posture of the character is really interesting. Not only is it easier to draw than a front version, but its also easier to add some perspective (as we can see with the legs). The fact that we just need to draw one wing is also interesting.
Most of these cartoon animals are not filled with complex textures or digital effects. In this case, the subject is filled with plain colors and only a few basic details (inside the tail) were added.
A nice turtle also from a side view.
