2006 - Weapons/Armor

My new crossbow that I picked up at Pennsic (<A href="/photos/2006/pennsic/">photos</A>).I had looked at several, but these struck me as much more structurally sound, andof very high craftsmanship quality. It has a laminated wood high-velocity prod, requiringonly 60 pounds to draw, but matching or exceeding the velocity of many higher-strengthsteel prods. The trigger mechanism uses a long metal rod as the trigger underneath, whichis a period design.

In armor, sporting my new spaulders and shield. I ran intoa fellow Crusader, a Templar who was out and about for theday. We decided to get some pictures. This poor fellow's face was pretty crunched up inside his helmet.Looked as though he pretty well flattened his nose to fit into it.

I finally got around to cleaning the rust off of my buckler, and painting it up.Here it is sitting next to my larger Templar/Crusader shield that I got roughly aweek before. It won't be long before the buckler is all scratched up, since I use it occasionally. However, it'll look the part, and resist rust a bit better!

A close-up of me, showing the new brass spiral knighthood chain.It's laying across my <A href="http://www.lundegaard.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=3">Merc's Guild pin</A>, which I finally discovered is quite easy to pin onto my coif.I've worn the pin off and on over the years.

Replaced the foam caps on the rivets on the inside of my back-plate. My old ones didn't stop the blisters. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will work better. One fell off when I tried it on (usingjust hot-glue). I'm trying silicone sealant this time. Yes, I'm aware of the rust. I do sweat, you know. :) I'll probably hit it with some primer one of these days.

My old steel set of mail. It weighs about the same as my set ofplate armor. Also the old SCA-style sallet, an imported breastplate,and my old "cheater" set of chain can be seen hanging from the shoulder. The cheater-set was basically a chainmail dickie. It's just sleeves andshoulders. I wore that in the interim until my aluminum set was ready,so as to avoid wearing 50 lbs of mail on my shoulders. At least the platedistributes it... this chainmail does not.

My plate armor made it to MDRF a second time, this time onclosing weekend. The chainmail skirt hung a little lower thanintended this time, but oh well. I need to do more work on itanyway. Still need to get me some greaves and sabatons. And agorget that doesn't suck.

Another shot of me from the Saturday of MDRF closing weekend, in armor. I'm not posting allof these in rapid succession out of vanity, but rather the fact that I like to have a good record of my armor's evolution, and each shot seems to bring something different to it. Photo taken by my co-worker, Alana. Wholly stolen from our company's intranet. :)

The teddy-bear surcoat lives again! Yes, my first time in many years toparticipate in "The Day of Wrong" This one doesn't wear as well, and of course, well, chainmail tendsto bunch up in certain areas and amplify your gut a bit. The amusing thing is that many people would ask for my picture, and compliment me on the armor, and THEN realize I was wearing teddy-bearflannel. Ah yes, the joys of being Sir Ted de Bear, Knight of the Order of Saint Theodore. lol!
