HM3: Polearms update!

Although I haven't been able to work on the Polearms for HM3 due to the new mini, long-time HeroMachine contributor (and designer of many of the most-loved items from 2.x) Mark Shute has stepped up to the plate and generously offered his time to put together a set of them for you all to use and enjoy. His mix-and-match polearm shafts and heads are now available in the HeroMachine 3 Alpha in the ItemRight slot.

Let Mark and me know in the comments what you think of the new set. Once the new mini is out I'll circle back and add in my own bunch of items to it as well, so it's not complete by any means, but Mark's provided a very solid and flexible collection that should greatly enhance your ability to make the perfect character illustration.

Enjoy them, and be sure to say thanks to Mark, he worked hard on these and did a great job!

    I know it’s a little heavy on historic European polearms, but I had good European source material to work from. I hope to add some more Asian influenced pieces soon.

    Great job Mark, and thanks!

    It’s extra-specially good because some of the items can be made into swords and things.

    Thanks again!

    Can I just ask everyone on the HM forums, are you having trouble getting on to it? It keeps on saying it contains no data. All other websites work, it’s only the forums.

  8. Jeff Hebert says:

    Those forums are … challenging. I’m tempted to start up some here but I don’t want to piss them off. Tempting tempting though.

  9. Eric says:

    Looks great Mark! Nice options and I can’t wait to see your Asian influenced items as well.

  10. Hammerknight says:

    They look great Mark, thanks.

  11. Hammerknight says:

    @Hakoon, the forums are not letting me on either.
    @Jeff, a photo album type of forum would be nice, it would work great with the contest.

  12. Hakoon1 says:

    I can get back on it now. Must of been a server error or something.

  13. Dennis says:

    I like the new items, thanks a bunch, dude! Can’t wait for the Asian style items to be put up also!

  14. Matt says:

    Woah! Thanks Mark, these are great, I hope Jeffs paying you πŸ˜€ .

    Thanks Mark!

    I got four Asian-inspired polearm heads done tonight, along with a roman trident. It’ll be a few days before I can do any more drawing.
