After all the expense and time, we may as well enjoy them.
The pistols are nicer than I expected. The trail of smoke is more significant than I thought from the preview pane and creates a stream behind your character when you run. It doesn’t show as well in a screen capture though.
I was also pleasantly surprised by the ribbon on the axes. I expected to hate them, but they make for a nice animation when used.
The longbow and shield look as I expected, the greatsword a little better.
