Fit for a Queen – Adventures of Sir Tristan Trimetals

November 7, 2017

In his latest adventure, Sir Tristan receives an invitation from the Queen to visit the palace with his armoured shed.

Bernard the Dragon has other ideas and warns the creatures of Doomwood and Splutter Swamp that Sir Tristan will be venturing through.

Despite Bernard’s usual threats, the monsters are not able to stop or damage the shed; even a last gasp of fiery breath from the dragon has no effect.

The Queen is delighted that the shed has arrived unscathed and awards it with the Royal Seal for Design, Ingenuity and Quality. [read more...]


The Test of Time – Adventures of Sir Tristan Trimetals

October 19, 2017

In this adventure Bernard the dragon thinks time is on his side when he meets with Mongo, the time travelling Wizard.

Unfortunately, Bernard’s latest evil scheme backfires as the Wizard finds Sir Tristan’s shed in perfect condition when he pays it a visit 25 years in the future.

Not wishing to tell the short tempered dragon of his worrying news he sensibly transports himself again, out of harm’s way.

As always, Sir Tristan gets the last laugh.

Goblin proof your shed – Trimetals has the answer.

Trimetals are proud to present:

YE OLDE ADVENTURES OF SIR TRISTAN TRIMETALS

Although the modern day Trimetals was founded in 1967 it now appears that our medieval ancestors also had ideas about metal sheds.

Recent excavation work in the tunnels under the Trimetals factory have revealed ancient manuscripts, now translated they tell the story of chivalry, heroism, dragons and, of course, metal sheds.

Believed to be written by none other than Sir Tristan Trimetals himself, it tells his legendary story about the ongoing battle against the evil beings who seek to wreak havoc on him and his shed. [read more...]
