I never said they where "better" I said they are more "fun"
As a man once said:
"I may not win, but I shall come a damn fine second"

That's a William Stanley in the background of Allan's pic, it is, it is...see the hart's head?! (I'm staying on topic and everything)
Probably running away from the fearsome Mr Harley:P

I’m farrrrrrrting in Allan’s general direction as it’s the only weapon I’ve come close to mastering. Unfortunately I missed and I think I took out a MOP by accident.

At least you weren't near a fire, if you were we'd all be in a smoking crater. But bally magnificent your retreating moose looks!

Is it retreating or simply advancing differently??
Posted: Fri Mar 24, 2006 7:16 pm
its a bonified 15th century tactic, i believe....*flicks furiously through large tombs on medieval tactics*....AH YES! its here under "advance in the style of the italians" also see "the only order the stafford line knows....charge, or, the lets see how many dukes we can lose this year competition" also see "advance in the style of the stanleys aka sit on a fence until you're sure who's winning and then commit" also see "nev- how many people can i insult in one post"

Insult, be buggered! We Stanleys are proud of our fence-sitting skills.
I am one of the spinach and mushroom coloured Tommy Stanleys, as opposed to my Moosical brethren who are Willies.
Unless I've got it all *rse about face again.
We all like cocktails, particularly the purple ones and the ones that look like sick.

Are the Thomas Stanleys Nobby's crew?

Err... is anyone willing to stay on topic?

Have to agree with Nev - Allan you have got to be the the most photographed person in WoTR re-enactment.
Amazes me how they always get your good side
Posted: Sat Mar 25, 2006 11:38 am
simple aj, those that have seen/photographed his bad side never survive it or if they do they're rendered bitter twisted husks of human beings and placed in the stafford bill block for safe keeping

Yes, the Thomas Stanleys are Nobby's Crew. He is our glorious leader, him and Duke.

Milwr Morganwg can be recognised by no two members being dressed alike
Oh yes, and a small coloured M badge, but if you're that close, you're either on our side, in the beer tent or we've run out of arrows!

OK I can't resist some publicity
Anyone else in the Crows who hasn't been knighted may be seen bearing the arms shown below.

Can be a bit of a problem if you run out of arrows, but plenty of target info here, but then in my groups old standing order is if not in red and black hit it!!
Posted: Mon Mar 27, 2006 5:57 pm
thats the polite version, hit it was never the phrasiology used

Perhaps we'll have Britannia posting up their livery here soon. I hear they have just put in an order to some company in India for a hundred medieval sallets.

I hear it's rusty red with a heraldic fox on the back

And their motto will be a Latinised version of 'We Never Turn Our Backs.'
Posted: Tue Apr 04, 2006 8:54 pm
I wanted the Latinised version of "sod this for a game of soldiers" embroidered on the bottom of my livery, but the Boss said "NO" (he was quite emphatic about it!)
Posted: Tue Apr 04, 2006 11:13 pm
wouldn't that be because there is no latin word for sod?
Posted: Wed Apr 05, 2006 5:07 pm
'SOD' wasn't 'quite' the word i had in mind...!

In the CoC (Company of Chivalry) we used to use the phrase "Putius Duras" as a war cry.
It was meant to mean "Well Hard" which it does in way... The first part is "Well" as in "thing you draw water from"
Posted: Wed Apr 05, 2006 7:49 pm
I did get 'F!ck you, I won't do what you tell me!' translated into Latin. Just because, really.

our livery is hidden behind a thick smoke screen.
and a pound to the first person who makes a joke about the use of the word "thick"

for myself i'm thinking of having something on my tent either "meum est propositum in taberna mori"-it is my fondest hope to die in an inn
"silent leges inter arma"- In war the law is silent
and possibly carved onto my bill "sic transit gloria mundi" so passes the glory of the world
and to finish part of my new speech at my enemies i shall be quoting scripture "i will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that have behold thee"- ezekial 27:13

Already on the tent
"Thou art mine axe, mine weapon of war, with thee I will level nations and destroy kingdoms"
Another popular one for all the weaponsmiths
"Ask not if I come with the Peace of the Lord, I come with the sword"
