The Armoury / Re: Teutonic great helm...now with wings?
« Last post by Frater de Beaumanoir on 2020-04-27, 13:02:22 »
Hello all!

I hope this post finds you all in good health and not laid low by the plague. I wanted to say that I do stop by this site frequently, because I like to read some of the discussions that take place. Much better here and more civilized.

With this being said, I wanted to post on this topic again, because the work I posted before has been given a bit of new life over the past few years, and I wanted to solicit the feedback from the learned members of this group. Not too mention y'all probably have some time on your hands to read it. Use it as an excuse to curtail that "Honey do" list of activities....if only for half an hour. ;D

Here's the work:

Take care! Dv!

So mid-12th century, 300eur or less, no particular place of origin, and no need to actually fight with it under a specific set of rules?

What is your budget and what crusade are you going for?

Stay away from Allentown (PA) as well, it's been going downhill for years. lots of places closing up shop and moving to better areas. The only thing it has going for it is it's international airport.

So shortly after that last post we moved to just outside Boston, then a year later to Raleigh. My wife is currently working as a Chef for one of the universities here.

You might want to think about the St. Paul / Minneapolis metro area (3.3 million).  The food and micro brew scene is exploding here.


Man I am still hoping we can move there next. We almost did move there the first time around by accident while driving through Des Moines. Still wondering if we did the right thing.

Hey guys,
I'm looking for a crusader helmet. (Battle ready)
Does anyone have experience with helmets from historical marshal? 
 I want a good finish.
I want a symmetrical shape.
I was thinking about "crusader spangen helmet"

Thank you,

Boots by Bohemond is your best bet. I've had a pair for years and they do great.

What kind of workout regime do you do to prepare for the 5k?
