Re: Weekend Warriors

Although this is a bit stereo type of "nasty officers" as not all are. Yes I am one of those ex-military people. I wonder how the NCO´s or officers would react if they got some of the typical "feedback" from the lower ranks back as is the case in the real military? Thinking of th...

Re: Medieval Design (suppliers)

Just discovered this post, well if it helps at all, this supplier has close ties to the Company of Sainte George.
Have bought a few pieces from them.

Re: HNEFATAFL

Photo on 09-10-2014 at 19.52.jpg Interestingly, my missus has just said that the possible hnefatafl board is actually on the back, and the front is a morris board. The original is also missing the latice work which designated the starting positions of the pieces which is a common motif that the rec...

Re: HNEFATAFL

What's the provenance for Viking-Age decretive scorching? My advice would be to avoid anything that looks like a chopping board attacked by a dremel, sets with elaborate pyrography, or anything too fancy really (eg, all glass sets, pewter or brass pieces, resin cast replicas almost always have moul...

Re: HNEFATAFL

It's easy enough to make your own. Rebate the required number of holes into a slab of wood, use a hot skewer to cortch in the corners and centre holes and by glass chip with one big marble for the king. Or, if your skint, start collecting sets of pebbles. That is not the problem, a wooden board and...

HNEFATAFL

Does any one know a good source for a authentic replica of a hnefatafl game? Bought one years ago from PAST TIMES but that is more or less only for use at home, and not at events....Jelling Dragon has two listed since about January as "out of stock" So I was wondering if there are any othe...

Re: Polyester Cloak...for vikings.

Who would buy a linen cloak?
That makes no sence. If it is too warm
for a wool cloak then you don´t need a cloak.

Crafts display

Hi everyone, new here on this forum. Is anyone else into crafts displays? I myself am doing purely civilian crafts displays in all three periods I have been doing. In my case it is a first century provincial Roman goldsmith and a 15th century miniature painter and gilder. My momentary project is a 9...
