Didn't know that Jesus Christ was a slinger  Grin
Greetings,
Mauro.


EDIT: I forgot the serious thing: VERY NICE clothing jla!!!! A pleasure for the eye  Wink


Did they have cargo pants back then? Wink I'm sorry, it could not resist. But seriously. Very, very cool. I enjoy period reinactments, especially a person's back story to thier persona and their gear. Did you make everything yourself? I saw a presentation once where they tested wooden shields and showed how rawhide wrapped edges added strength and durability to the shield. It was cool. You should show detail of your outfit and gear. Nicely done.

My pants are not yet made so i put on some brought ones for the moment.I'm still working on my gear,that's why i wrote "battle ready..almost"  Cheesy
Yes i made my gear,except the tunic was sewn by a girl,and the  sword was forged by a friend. I got into a romanian reenactement group called Terra Dacica Aeterna ,and i'm playing the role of a balearic slinger as a mercenary numerus serving in the roman army,aiding in the conquest of Dacia 2nd century BC. Here's a pic of my shield with a leather cover,which will have another strip of leather installed acting as a rim.Also the hispanic type short sword,still needs a scabard:

Nice river! Where were you?

Jlasud, your gear is really well done (as a blacksmith, I'm talking mostly about your iron stuff).
Just a bit consideration: these belt's rivets look a bit too modern in my opinion, why don't you replace them with some small iron nails? Making rivets out of nails is really funny and cheap; it will also give your belt a much older looking  Wink

It's great stuff anyway; I'm waiting to cast a bronze harpoon and then I'll be ready to show you my Picenian VIIth century (b.C) equipment: summer and winter clothes and war stuff - I'll forge the sword next Saturday!
Greetings,
Mauro.



EDIT:
jla, the more I think about your stuff, the more I like it; anyway reconsidering my speech this is not the proper topic to show my gear, so what if I open a new one dedicated to our re-enactment activity?!

Since I don't have a picture of me slinging, I thought I'd share my facebook profile picture. Enjoy my offsetting humor.

Disgraceful. How could you get Doritos when there's cheddar and sour cream ruffles right next to you?

Every time I travel outside Italy I'm fascinated by the big difference of brands and stuff I find at supermarkets.
What's Dorito???

They're artificially flavored corn chips. Imagine a tortilla chip, but in this case, with cheese flavoring.

Hey, I didn't buy all those Doritos. I think I went with some generic chips that night. Anyway, thanks for the welcoming.  Cool
