Andy can you please edit your post name calling is not needed

Cheers

That Mod

Perhaps he wasn't name calling... there isn't a posessive apostrophe... so perhaps it's a device called a 'twats cannon' used by a bloke called Tim.

I dunno about stuff after 1100 so there may wll be such a device... along with a 'tit mangonel' and a 'cleft ram'

Do I win my £5 ?

that's his name - or at least all of his friends know who he is by that name..... they wouldn't know if I said captain davy jones (his chosen nickname) or tim of the ...............

no point in changing it because of merkinsbrains quote now anyway. ever helpful.



and thank you Merkinbrain. you are of course fully entitled to have an opinion on me due to the long personal conversation you sent your other half to have with me arn't you......... foo'. so you going to keep stalking me here because you didn't have the balls to even talk to me in person then?

OOooooooohhhh, it's when I see pics like this when I really begin to hate living in the states. We don't have jack over here for reenactment (except on the east coast for Revolutionary and Civil wars, blah), and the kits mostly suck big green donkey.....well, you know.....
I see kits for everything ranging from Romano all the way into WWII in those pictures. Nice job everyone, and thanks for making me so freakin' jealous!

Greg G, have you tried contacting some of the groups via armour archive, quite a few of them turned up for hastings last year.

Posted: Fri Aug 17, 2007 5:42 pm
by Greg G.
Nigel - Unfortunately we are moving next Spring, so a trip next year is not possible. BUT 'tis a thought for 2009 as we were planning on flying over then anyway!!!

gregory23b - Thanks for the tip. Yeah, I have been in contact with a couple of the groups that frequent Armour Archive, but the closest one is over 700 miles from me.

I need to post pics of my Hospitaller kit (1206AD) and let you guys rip me a new one telling me what all is wrong, hehe. I have researched it over two years time before creating it, so in my wee little mind it should be fairly correct. <famous last words> :lol:

Has a very nice video, and a number of pictures - including a lovely one of myself and my Vickers and some random children in the WW1 trench! :P
