Ansteorra Kingdom ILoI dated 2019-05-06

Greetings,

These were in the Gulf Wars submissions.

1: Melody MacGregor -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2000, via Ansteorra.

Vert, a harp Or sustained by a domestic cat rampant argent and on a base embattled Or 3 vert

Device Comments:

Iago ab Adam at 2019-05-06 22:04:34
We need more info on the relative positions of the primary charges. The name of the charges on the base is missing. And we spell out numbers.

Vert, in fess a harp Or sustained by a domestic cat rampant argent and on a base embattled Or three viols vert.

Iago ab Adam at 2019-05-07 10:22:41
Looking closer at this, I'm not sure if this is quite rampant. Perhaps 'statant erect'?

Vert, in fess a harp Or sustained by a domestic cat statant erect argent and on a base embattled Or three viols vert.

Agree with all of Iago's comments. No conflicts found. Nitpick: none of the fiddles should be touching the edges of the base, even if it means slightly reducing the size of the upper two.

Iago ab Adam at 2019-05-07 11:18:22
I should also mention, I think 2 embattlements is too few.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2019-05-12 21:11:52
Probably right. I believe we've gone almost as minimal with a few chiefs, though not quite, and those have drawn artist's notes.


2: Morina O'Donovan -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2010, via Ansteorra.

(Fieldless) A mullet of 4 points within and conjoined with an annulet per saltire azure and argent

Spelling out the number, and changing 'with' to 'to':

(Fieldless) A mullet of four points within and conjoined to an annulet per saltire azure and argent.

Gawain of Miskbridge (Green Anchor) at 2019-05-07 11:13:59
This is not going to work displayed on an argent background. Agree with Iago's reblazon. No conflicts found.

Magnus von Lübeck at 2019-06-04 22:40:02
But it works as Fieldless.


3: Padric O Mullan -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 1998, via Ansteorra.

(Fieldless) A toad sejant affronty azure attired of a ram's horms Or.

Badge Comments:

Iago ab Adam at 2019-05-07 10:26:16
I believe this is a disallowed posture, as per the January 2018 Cover letter:

Therefore, after the August 2018 LoAR, use of the posture sejant erect affront will be a step from period practice for non-lions, whether winged or not. All other affronty postures for quadrupeds will be disallowed after the August 2018 LoAR unless documentation is provided.

Vémundr Syvursson at 2019-05-16 11:32:26
So much for some gentle's attempt to registry a "horny toad"...

Magnus von Lübeck at 2019-06-04 22:13:52

A frog can be drawn sejant erect affronty. A redraw reduces this to a step from period practice.

Consider Karl Ulfson registered in May of 1983 (via the Middle):
"Argent, a frog sejant affronty azure."
Does the addition of the ram's horns grant a DC? Recent precedent has not provided any guidance.

Gawain of Miskbridge (Green Anchor) at 2019-05-07 11:14:20
No conflicts found, which makes no difference given the disallowance cited by Iago.


Thanks to Villana for her assistance with these.
