Re: Spurs - How to wear them?

Best thing would be to put them on just before mounting and take them off as soon as you dismount.

Re: good helmet liners and sundry padding

On the discussion forum on myArmoury.com there is a topic with progres pictures of the making of a helmet liner. There are some pictures of extant pieces in it as well. I'm planning to use it as a how-to guide to making a new liner for the sallet I have. Should be finished before summer. myArmoury.c...

Re: Two Wheel Medieval Hand Cart

I'm stumped with the whole 'sign' thing though as most Hawkers and Peddlers would have used carts when going from village to village, but most people couldn't read. I was thinking of a canvas awning, or turning it into a covered wagon (think wild west) but wondered if anyone had any info on 'for sa...

Re: Decorated Banners

On the site of the Compagnie d'Ordonnance are pictures of the banners and cornets of the various Burgundian companies. It's a bit later than you specified, the third quarter of the 15th century to be exactly. These are the ones for the one we portray, the 5th company. The banner would be about 1 met...

Re: Silk Velvet

Because this turns out to be a nice collection of high quality fabric suppliers I'd like to mention Almerlin. This German company has some nice brocades and damasks. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to have a lot of silk velvet at the moment but you might ask them if they could find some.

Re: Sources for Painted Armour ?

There are some nice examples in this and that topic on myArmoury.com. From what I understood many painted pieces have had their paint removed during the Victorian era. I believe back then they had this idealised view of knights in shining armour, so they cleaned the pieces thoroughly...
