The show at Traquir went ok, except for my mate’s armourers letting him down, so he’s in borrowed kit.
sorry but the camera ran out just before the finale.
Thanks for your advice everyone,
Phil, I’m sure those American lads are great, but the reason I’m doing this is ‘cos I’m broke. The day this venture makes me enough brass for a holiday in NY is the day I don’t need advice. ‘Till then, keep it comin.
Norbury, I’m not keen on slowing it down any more than we have to, and shields are redundant in full armour. I want the fight to be fast paced, all the way through. We used longsword ‘cos its what I know best, though poleaxe is definitely an option. Maces need thought, I would have to devise some ‘interesting’ moves for after panel beating has worn thin. But its appealing, mace vs Gothic horseman’s axe.
Paul, I agree, but we cut out the halfsword bits I’d come up with ‘cos no-one could see what was happening from a distance. We are working on it, the whole thing is a compromise really. But we do need a good halfsword section. We have not done any explaining of the fight so far, we’re not really going for educational.
ta for your thoughts
