Throwback to Norway, hanging out the lovely @nornewoven on this hand crafted replica viking boat, the craftsmanship is just purely stunning!
How many of you all would travel in a viking boat if you could?
So, for those who’ve known my blog for a while, you know that I’m an archer.
For those who didn’t, there you go.
My mistake might have been that I just bought 12 carbon arrows with screw points from eBay for cheap with free shipping. Like a dozen for maybe AU$26.
My next mistake was, I bought some larp arrow tips, like the big foam ones not the golf ball ones, for about AU$45-50 with free shipping.
I can’t remember the exact amount off the top of my head, but the point is that if they all fit into each other, I’ll have subverted the 6 for $80 larp arrow problem.
The reason I’m getting this shit is because, I went to the Armidale gathering this year at the end of March, it’s held in a pine forest, now as a reenactor Ive currently only got access to padded javelins as a ranged weapon, however if I can get enough people ok with me using these arrows in combat, while using the same rule set for Non-combatant peltasts, I can make a significant difference to my side, more so than with just a sword and shield.
Officially back from our weekend event, unpacked and orders are now flying out the door again! I wanted to share a bit of the madness of events this was a Slow day right before jousting but it was such a fun event as always. Some highlights for me at the @sonora_celtic_faire is always Welsh cakes, Meat pies and the real jousting/mele is always a treat.
