Re: A Highland Revival Drawstring Plaid.

I'll take photo's once I get the plaid out to wear it and that won't be for some time, so have patience.

Re: A Highland Revival Drawstring Plaid.

I'll see what can be done about a picture. Wim, you're wondering why no other paintings show the drawstring. My guess would be that because the portrait of Mungo Murray is the only one to show it is because it's one of the few paintings that show a short enough doublet or jacket for it to be visible...

Re: A Highland Revival Drawstring Plaid.

Thanks Tod. :) It means a lot to hear :) I've made two drawstring'ed plaids. I did mine based on pictures I got from a guy who had his made by the Tartan Museum in the US, and the only difference is that instead of using tartan for the loops, it had leather. So that's what I did. I added two drawstr...

Re: RaT Swarkestone 2010

A very good reason to wear a sporran and a dirk... It holds the kilt down.

Tod, yes, you really were blue. And white... Is that some sort of Jacobite symbolism? And here's me, the frosty Norwegian Jacobite only turning red on my knees...

Re: Napoleonic hand to hand rules?

That pretty much sums up what we are discussing here. Bayonets are bloody dangerous.

Yes, I will here with my regiment this saturday if they've heard rumours of the said event. And in time will urge them to go for it, since it sounds to fit our time frame :-)

Napoleonic hand to hand rules?

Dear all, I went to a meeting with my Norwegian napoleonic regiment (sorry, by history we are not allied with Britain :-S ) and was asked if I could ask about on forums what the general rules in other reenactment societies are regarding hand-to-hand and live steel (bayonets and swords). So, can anyo...

During the Napoleonic wars Britain were bad guys... If you look at it from a Norwegian point of view... I grew up only a few kilometers from Lyngør where there was a sea battle between the Dano-Norwegian navy and the British navy in 1812. We lost and the battle pretty much ended the Dano-Norwegian i...

Very nice bonnet! Well done!
Did you use the one on the Scotwars website? All my bonnets are based on that pattern, and I'm very happy with mine.

Where are the viking horns on it, Phil?
