You'll see it in the flesh, plus even more bits ( a bit of White Rose and Roy King creeping in) as I understand there is mounted skill at arms stuff to do in harness and that's jousting stuff, not field. More flipping polishing.....

But will he polish your harness or just get grubby paw prints all over it?

Thanks Andreas!

I have to add Roy King (Sabatons) and Dave Hewitt (Milanese field arms) to the ensemble for what I wore at Pendennis. Kind of just because I could but it was a better combination for mounted skill at arms than heavy joust armour.

Managed to break a solid lance end on Martyn Smith too, mega hit! Crowd pleasers R us...

Loving my new wasson helmet!
