When Thanos was born, his mother thought she'd never get a moments rest for he was an inquisitive child with a busy mind and busy hands. By the time he was two, Thanos had taught himself to read and by the time he was five he was taking clocks apart and putting them back together again. "I must know how things work, Momma," he would say. When he grew into a man, he volunteered to do service in the Kings Army. It was here that he developed his love for weaponry.
After a short apprenticeship, Thanos opened his own smithy.
He had an affinity with the steel, an understanding of how it wanted to be shaped. Each blade that left his anvil had it's own personality perfectly matched to that of the man who would one day wield it.
There was one sword that made him famous, the one that became the stuff of legends, the one that could cleave the head off a dragon with a single stroke. During the making of this sword Thanos was heard to speak these words as he labored to bring this blade to life "You, I will make sing with the voice of an angel. For to you, I give my life ten times over." And to this day, that sword hangs still in utter perfection somewhere in the mountains of Connemara. It is said that when the wind blows in from the West, she can be heard crying at the loss of her maker.

I am going to be doing a Progress Report on both of my projects to let people know where I'm at with their figures. Some of them have been giving me fits!!
Well folks it's Friday and unfortunately it's still Winter. So bundle up, drink a hot toddy and think warm thoughts. I know I will.
