What did you use for polishing?
One last question: what's the purpose of the red (leather?) strip on the backplate? It seems riveted to the plate, but what for?

Looks nice, but see if you can get your pauldrons to sit a bit higher, otherwise they may catch on the back plate and get stuck under it.

Learnt that tip from bitter experience!

Well now, that takes me back a bit. I still have my leather harness, but it has been replaced on the field by my Gothic Plate and sometimes my maille hauberk over a jack. The leather comes out to play at earlier shows such as Templecombe and Tintagel where leather is more prevalent, and I might poss...

Re: Pourpoint

Hey, I'm looking into having a pourpoint made and was wondering if anyone has a good little stash of info on pourpoints for the mid to later 15th century? Thanks I get the impression that a "pourpoint" as we reenactors term it is merely the sleeveless version of a doublet, such that it lo...

There's one point in that video where you can see me single handed holding off Rochesters from your flank, while they run a book on whether I'm actually awake or asleep in there. ...or indeed whether you're actually in the harness at all, as opposed to supping a pint in the beer tent while the bag ...

I don't have one myself but frequently see others use the thonging around the neck technique you describe. Personally I think most mail coifs have too much extra mail around the shoulders, chest and back and the weight of it pulls the whole coif out and away from the neck, causing the "no-neck&...

Whether someone is armoured or not isn't a black/white thing, but a sliding scale of grey. I've seen people armoured up to the eyeballs still get quite badly hurt, while someone with b**ger all protection walks off the field without a scratch. Likewise, I've seen people with lots of experience cause...

I wouldn't fight you though. I like to know where or if i can hit someone. So if I can't see any armour then I wouldn't go anywhere near you omae. And if that meant you hit me, i'd just die and get out of your way. Have to disagree with you there matey. I'll happily fight someone wearing no armour ...

So how was it compared to last year? Was it the same - two marches plus the stage fight, or did the group do anything different?

Nice pics BTW!
