So I am in need of some pictures for something I am working on and wanted to see if anyone had, in their own home albums, some items I could use. I have loads of pictures of many of these items though they are without origin on my computer and for what I am using them I cannot have such material.

Does not need be original but I'd prefer that. They do have to be your own pictures or from a known source so I can give credit... a year would also be most helpful.

Multi-barrelled gun of any type small or large. On a cart or not does not matter.

Small pipe handgun- latten or iron does not matter so long as the shaft enters through the back.

Small to medium sized bombard. We are talking maybe half Mons Meg or something like that.

Counter weight Trebuchet

Traction powered trebuchet

Hirschstein castle COP

late 14th covered breastplate at the Bavarian Nat. Museum.

Thanks again and sorry for the long wish list!

Shameful bump

OK.... does anyone have even a picture of even one of these items they know where it came from?

This page has a fair number of pictures about medieval firearms:

while for trebuchets, just go to the Grey Company:

Lafayette,

Thanks for the link. I may contact them and ask if I can use them. I was hoping that some members here had personal photos of some things as I have copyright issues to look at and such. It is so much nicer to be able to have a nice unique color picture as well. Some of the stuff the grey company has made is rather awesome though!

The Danish middelaldercentret might also have some images you could borrow:
