Breton squire armor of the Monfort party, around 1350.

Awesome kit! Big Grin also, Do you separate retention chain sewn into your surcoat? Also, why white? I image in would make any dust dirt and stains rather obvious.

To Mark C. Moore : Thank you very much, I am working on this new armour project since 3 years to finally realise my perfect kit.

To Philip Dyer : Thank you !!

I dont understand what do you mean by separating chains. Chains are fixed on the coat of plate an the come through both brass "mamellars" who are fixed to the surcot.

White was often use in mid 14th century as clothes or in heraldry. Here it's a woolen fabic with linen inside . I need to wash my surcot after some months but people on this period did the same Happy

Please forgive my ignorance, but what purpose do/did the chains serve? I SHOULD know this by now, so I feel foolish even asking. Blush ...McM

This chains was used to suspend weapons and helm . We see often 2 -3 or 4 chains on the coat of plate. One for the sword, one for the dagger and 2 for great helm over a small not visored bascinet. This type of suspention exist from 1320-1330 until 1375-80 on coat of plate first , then on corrazzina and breastplate later

Thank you! That's what I was thinking. Happy I've seen great helms suspended by chains...I just forgot. Blush Don't get old. Memory is one of the first things to go. Laughing Out Loud ....McM

Félicitations Pierre ! This armour is incredible. I envy you to have such a set, even if I'm more into the civilian fighting!

Pierre, great kit and a very distinctive look. Very nicely done from the spectator side of things!

My late 15th century Scandinavian gunner kit. The arquebus has a stock based on a illustration from Martin Merz 1475 "Fireworks book" and an original early 16th century barrel. The armour bits would be on the archaic side in contemporary continental Europe, but the kettle hat and simple export breastplates are shown on illustrations until well into 16th century.

Just thought I'd throw out a quick pic of my new knees from Mytholon. They are quite heavy-duty for 18ga. steel, and very flexible. I wish they had the 'fans' on the outsides of the knee cops, but I may build my own and rivet them on later. Gonna have to make a couple of holes in the tops of each one to be able to point them to a belt though...they tend to sag a bit. Otherwise---pretty good for what I paid. Big Grin .....McM

Sorry for the poor quality photo. I've gotta get a decent digital camera!

So cool, Pierre you look like a 14th century effigy come to life. The chains are a really nice touch.

Something a little sillier from me - wearing my armor to Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament!



For those of you who don't know, Medieval Times is a dinner show where the performers simulate a tournament while you eat roast chicken off pewter plates. It's super cheesy and all the actors really ham it up but really good fun especially if you drink a lot and you're in good company. The staff got a kick out of a guy showing up in armor and the other guests loved it as well.

Good day to you all!
Finally went to the living history event with my new helmet and sword.
Concept: light cavalry/infantry in the South German region in 1490-1500.

Helmet is based on black Schaller and painting is from another extant one, but the colouring is reversed (original is red field and silver flor de Llys)

Cuirass is a bit archaic and modelled after round style with divergent ridges pattern. It's a little shabby after a tournament of St.George in Moscow where it lost its tassets.

Shoulders and gauntlets based on Churburgh collection and Munich museum analogues.

Sword is a replica of Copenhagen style.

Always a pleasure to watch this topic and see your stuff and very inspiring kits (honestly I did it for years and it was quite good motivation to mak progress with mine kit).

Le Floc'h Pierre outstanding both your harness, and also your group, the pictures made me to consider learning franch, moving to your country and try to join your group Wink but I have to stay in reality, soooo I have to stay in Hungary, but I follow your group and eager to watch what you guys do.

Tjrand's kit is also really nailed the caracter in my oppinion, I rellay like all your posts here, so keep up the good work and congrats!

Blaz, I really like your harness also, you have made a really good impression of the gothic style.

Vadim, your kit looks good too, the painted sallet is really nice, I like these painted helmets Happy good to see the not mirror polished armour, considering your light cavalry/infantry character.

Since last year, when I've posted my kit here, I made just a little progress, but my harness feels more complete. I have now an hourglass style gauntlet with segmented fingers. I've also added some light decorations so it"s more "alive" for example to the helmet or the yellow dagged edge to my CoP. My character's heraldic colors are green and gold (yellow in fabric) it adds some character to it, in my oppinion.



In the future I would like to get a better and more fitting belt (this obw. not made for this armor) which I can fasten bellow my waist line like in the 1350-1375's and riveted mail aventail instead of this "butted" version and also a riveted pair of mail sleeves for my armpits and inner arm, elbow. So I hop you guys like the pics Happy
