Thanks for the Link Shawn, I downloaded Axialis IconWorkshop and had a play with some icons and I have posted them in the custom themes thread, I used ResHacker to extract the icons in C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll and %SystemRoot%\system32\Shell32.dll and I have posted them as well if you wanted to have a play with them.
