2: Arndís Knýtir -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Outlands LoI of October 31, 2018 as submitted.

Azure, two sheep combattant and a base pointed argent

The previous submission, Azure, a ram and a ewe combatant argent snd a drop spindle Or, was returned on the October 2018 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2018-09-lop/1810-lor.html) with the following: {Returned for a redraw. The use of the ram and the ewe runs afoul of the sword and dagger rule. The drop spindle is also problematic. It is almost large enough to be co-primary which could potentially run into "slot machine" design issue - 3 different primaries on the same field - and it is too large to be a secondary charge 'in base'.
