    Woah, in person. I'm not sure I can turn that down. If you're free, that sounds great. I'll PM you..

    Pictures Adiun rounding up all his books and traveling with a wheelbarrow to Tarsin's place. Be advised Diet Coke is his fuel!

    All my heraldry books? I'd need more than a wheelbarrow! Maybe a flatbed truck could do it.

    We'll definitely be taking you up on the IM consult offer, but for now can you please take my arms and add the lable to represent my eldest son, Goibniu, in the roster?...

    The benefit of remote consults is that he supplies his own fuel of choice!... :p
    (And is that regular diet, or zero? Plain, cherry, vanilla, cherry & vanilla, or any of the other flavours?

    Since the background where the label will be is white, what color would you like the label?

    My apologies...

    Per fess argent and vert, a hart springing gules, in chief a lable sable.

    I can adjust the label a little.
    Thicker, thinner, a bit higher, or a bit lower.
    Pendants a bit shorter.
    Let me know what you think.

    Can you put it all the way at the top with shorter pendants so the hart isn't obscured (as much)?

    I can! (until Adiun, NirAntae, or Coren tell me I can't)

    This will take a few minutes.

    I don't know if the blazon builder will be able to apply a label like this.
    I can only say we can try.

    It does need to be a little lower -- as it is, it's a chief with three short pendants -- but there may be a way to do what you're looking for. Perhaps you could use a label of two points?

    Let's not put too much time in to this... I'm pretty certain my son will soon be in contact to design his own COA... I gave him the pledge yesterday, so I'll give him some time to absorb it all, before we get to designing his own, and showed him the placeholder with lable just now, and told him he'll be allowed to design his own if he doesn't want this one...

    He's very creative, so I'll be curious to see what he comes up with on his own, and then see whether it is permissable!
    I've already explained to him the basic rules (like no tincture on tincture or metal on metal, basic divisions, like fess, quarters, etc.), and he's been looking at examples from the gallery...
    But if it becomes too complex, I'll ask one of the heralds here to assist us! ;)

    is everything.
    Hello Bodhbh Dearg, I'am one of the heraldic artists for the College of Arms, and I would like to help your son design his own personal Coat of Arms.. Only of course if you would like, there are many other talented artists in the College you can ask also. You and your son can contact me directly through inbox or here on this thread if you decide you would like my help. Either way I look forward to the finished product!

    Thanks O'Sullivan! He's just come up with a basic draft** (scribbled on a 2x2" piece of paper :D), so I'll contact you in PM to give a description of what he's sketched and explained, and let's see whether it is both feasible and permissable...

    ** Yeah, I am surprised too how fast he made up his mind about what he wanted...
