Hussite Pavise

Post by craig1459 »

This seems to have gone from the Creative Works section so I'll put it here - my new pavise

As my comment was eaten up by the forum update once more:
Nice!
Would you mind posting a picture of the backside (interested in the construction of grip/belt)?

Painting style works really well.

What are your construction methods, boards, canvas etc? What is that stuff around the pavise edges though?

Cheers - finally used your painting tuition :-)

I made it from some ply I had spare, pegged together - edged with leather and then covered in canvas (the leather is the ridge you can see round the edges)
It's the first time I've attempted something this complex, but I feel confident enough now to do it again with purchased and improved materials (everything in the construction was spare, scraps)
the back isn't interesting - rope through holes in the wood
I'm just going to use it for display

I've done a similar thing, although I got bored with mine during painting, so its nowhere near as nicely painted as yours. I'm planning on making one using pine planks, pegs and PVA, and then covered in leather/parchment. After that I might risk it with lime wood, but I might do a different style shield with that. Whats your next one gonna be made out of?
Slowly realizing just how far is still to go.

Thanks :-)
Lime wood, probably about 3/4 the size of this one
I also used PVA on this one, would like to use animal glue next time

Looks good.

Is the leather edging based off anything in particular?
What size is this one?

There are a few in the MyArmoury.com thread which appear to have a leather edging http://radikal.ru/F/s39.radikal.ru/i085 ... b.jpg.html for example

It's 2' by 3'

English spellings were multiple - I'll apply the same logic to period Czech :-P

SJP: Well, the point is, that the diacritic used by Craig (and the one on AB polearm you linked) is a much later (post-hussite). Hussite period is not really famous for it's advanced and intricate literature;)

Craig, that is not leather edging, at least not on the one in the link, that is a painted border, to contain the image. The leather is flush finished to allow the painting, you can see a 'ruled' edge that has corners.

The coverings for pavises generally overlap the inside face, not the outside face, ie the outer shell of cloth or leather laps to the user, not the enemy, you get a thicker ridge where the layers overlap, but not edging as such, but that is a general comment of course.

Go straight for animal glue or even cheese based glue for the boards.

Animal size for the painting with a varnish layer perhaps or just varnish based paint, you can use egg as well, depends on the complexity.

Narvek is right about the spelling

It´s great to see someone is interested in our history.

Tabor city is 60 km from my home and Trocnov, born place of Jan Žiška is 13 km from my home. :D

yes I know that :wink: but very enjoyable marching round Tabor with flaming torches (and replicas of the weapons from the Hussite Museum) into the main square behind Zizka and his war wagon :D :D :D

we are the only group there that actually portray Hussites and do a combat display so yeah we rule :devil:

I'm not this year...I'm going to be a dad in October so the Tabor Meetings is a bit too close :D

There are some other members of the group going though...
