While not the best photo of my finished product, this one was recently taken at Lilies War 2014.   :)

Looks good Scott!  I've always loved how you did your bar-grill in the shape of a houndskull.  That's really cool!

Oh, and the guy on the right for some reason makes me think of Sir Bedivere from Monty Python. :)

HA!   :D

The guy on the right is Gareth the Black, Historian for Mercenary Company Nevermore, a brother in arms, and a great friend.  Hes been fighting in the exact same armour for more than 20 years.   :o

This year he broke down and started making plans for a new kit with lots of mail, new helm, etc.  Hes shooting for 1275 - 1300 ish.

But, being the incredibly smart newlywed that he is, he used those funds to purchase a beautiful lamellar armour for his bride (who also fights in the SCA).  ;) :)

I know the picture is for the padded aventail, but like Sir Ian, my eyes were drawn to the bar-grill pig face bascinet. Very cool!

I think your harness looks damn nice Lord Rodney.

The shape of an aventail liner can look deceptively simple, but you really did a great job.

Thanks for the kind comments all.  Now I just have to get off my butt and start the new pourpoint.   ;)
