Things I’ve made recently in preparation for the Abbey tournament


So I went to Mjolner Bar and restaurant tonight in Melbourne and you’ll never guess what they have on their wall.

A sword from the late 10th to early 11th Century. Got some pretty good photos and would highly recommend the Bar itself for its fantastic aesthetic.

Plus some photos me and my mate took of the 15kg Scotch filled “Mjolnir”


Various stages of in “full kit”

I need a new mail shirt though because this one is about 18kg of all round riveted rings. Instead of having 4:1 solid.

Decided to put everything on because the on season is coming up and I need to see if I have to alter anything.


Excited archery noises


Started some arrows for tomorrow’s school demonstration.

I’ve already got 4 made up for armour piercing purposes, but I intend on making several that are just target points for regular shooting


Thought I’d upload the actual video as well, quality is better than on YouTube


Managed to take a video of me shooting today, needed to send it to the bowyer so he could see it in action.

I feel I may have made a mistake…

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.

So stay tuned.

Playing around in one of the iron age farms in Norway, this farm was active and in use for over 500 years and into the viking age as well. A lot of rich artifacts were found here including glass blown drinking horns and many other imported items that came from the ports that were near by.
