Wot I did with my bank holiday weekend...
« on: 02 September, 2002, 06:38:38 PM »
This pic was taken at Eye Show, close to where Will Logan lives.

I'm the one on the right hand side wielding a sword, and holding my musket vertical as a shield.

This weekend I was at Dudley Castle for a skirmish and managed to acquit myself quite well against a mediaeval in armour with a longsword and buckler.

This fish has just given up smoking, yet again, and is looking forward to having a sense of smell once more.

I would appreciate support from other boarders in the form of olfactory encouragement.

What I mean is - what's your favourite smell?

Tch.  I can see why the march of progress rumbled right-over that particular era of history.  They're all holding their guns the wrong way round, the fraggles!  Talk about dumb!

This truly deserves a caption competition:

1 - "Are you sure we're meant to hold them this way round?"

2 - "I don't care how big your family is, when I say banned I mean BANNED!"

My entry to the caption competition:

"As battle was joined, it became clear one warrior found combat suspiciously arousing..."

Sorry, Wake. :-)

The 100 Years War could have been settled by tea time had someone realised which way to point a gun.

I have a numbe of friends who are well into this (more medieval period), they are based at Tintagel but go all over.

It is great fun, i train with them from time to time.

It looks like a bunch of musket-toting morris men.  All they need are some bells on their ankles to get the full "Hey Nonny Nonny" effect...

My wife likes this one best.

We had some mediaeval musicians at our wedding who did the "Hey Nonny" bit.

Wake - you scare me.

But hey! this is a great wedding picture:


Any artists out there fancy doing a portrait for my wedding?
Better set your phaser to stun.
