A very distinctive design - with a few points that I think could improve it a wee bit. C and S look a bit small, whilst M, R and W look a bit large.

Thanks. I've been adjusting C and S--particularly S--but although I realise that M and W are much wider than the other letters, I don't think I'll make them much smaller because for one that would be quite difficult and secondly that would probably mean I would have to break the fact that they're double-lambda and double-V. R and K are the same width, so it's funny you should mention it. This obviously means there are problems with R: most likely there is too much weight on the top right. This may lead to a redesign of letters like B.

C and S look so much better :)

Somehow this has a 'metal' feel to it, solid but the serifs make it elegant.

Nice. Any plans to complete the lower case, numerals and punctuation?

I'm with the people and the boss: complete it, please.

Thanks guys, I was working on this yesterday but when I refreshed the page it deleted a lot of my work so I decided to leave it a while. At the moment I'm just going round all my best fonts trying to improve/complete them, so I'll probably get back to this soon.
