Hello Gentlemen
« on: 2013-11-11, 23:26:42 »
H the codes of hoello to all!! My name is Tommy. I will be know here for now as LionPride32. I found this website while surfing links from the Sword Buyers Guide site. I've always had an interest in medieval things but my heavy study and basically obsession with the high middle ages started over the summer. My greatest inspiration by far is the one and only, Richard I of England - Cour de Lion, THE LIONHEART!!!  I've been reading every book about the Middle ages I can find, specifically, "A History of the Middle Ages" by Hywell Williams, "Richard the Lionheart" by John Gillingham, and, fittingly, "Knight" by Robert Jones.  I am also a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, so I have instilled in me already the values of honor, courage, a
nd commitment!


Sorry for rambling, I'm just very excited to be a part of this forum and I'm confident that Ill eventually be accepted into your ranks!

Hail William Marshall and LONG LIVE KING RICHARD!!!

I've definetly found the right place. Ill be working on my kit over the winter, gotta get xmas out of the way. Currently I do have a tunic with the 3 lions of King Richard ( I would consider myself one of his elite right hand men) and got the Richard sword from the Robin Hood movie, and fittingly a very nice William Marshall sword. Any adivice or personal stories I can get from anyone as far has how you built up your kit? I'm thinking my next step is chainmail and some gloves.

Well as you stated you seem to have zeroed in your timeline to the late 1100s to early 1200s. This will make the choice in armor relatively simple: A maille hauberk, maille chausses, a long surcoat, a shield and helm.  :)
