Welcome and Well Met!

I very much look forward to seeing your kit develop. :)

As a knight for hire, I understand your desire for a full gothic style kit as this is what the general public thinks of when they hear the word Knight.

Welcome Sir Joshua!

The Gothic look is very classic good choice. I made my current kits both for late 15th century. (halberdier and man-at-arms)

"He is truly a fearless knight and secure on every side, for his soul is protected by the armor of faith just as his body is protected by armor of steel." -Saint Bernard of Clairvoux

I thank all of you brothers in arms!  I am honored with your support!

Sir James:  You make a good point and that is what I found out during my research concerning 14th Century Harnesses.

Sir Ulrich:  I am also glad you have noticed this thread!  I am also glad to finally make it hear.

Sir Rodney:  Thank you so much!  I thought the same thing when I chosen the gothic harness for my harness as a knight for hire.  I intend to wear other types of harnesses within different knightly functions, but that is for another day.

Sir Nathan:  Thank you!  I have seen both kits and they are beauties for sure! (courtesy of Mercenary Tailor of course)
