Oh wow. I’m following @Rob_Marshall for quite some time now but this one beats it all. “Wolf At The Door” is an interpretation of the siege of Stirling Castle in 1304.
There’s also a production video beside the rendered images and a lot of background information on the siege itself. Fiddling with Blender myself I’ve quite some understanding about the process involved so I can’t stress enough how freakin awesome this work is:
„The Sword – Form and Thought“ was the name of an exhibition held at the Deutsches Klingenmuseum (German Blade Museum) in Solingen from 26th September 2015 until 28th February 2016, and is also the title of the accompanying catalogue.
Friends came over for a spontaneous armoured #training for #reenactment last weekend. Lots of stabbing while keeping the line closed. Weather was perfect for this but sadly not good for taking some good pictures so here is all I salvaged from the camera.
“Slow is smooth and smooth is fast.”
This adage is used to illustrate the fact that speed is gained through efficient movements, rather than just trying to use as much force as possible. And in a lot of ways it is true.
Most of the increases in speed we realize are not from an increase in the ra...
Looks like Sean wrote an excellent article on training speed in #HEMA [that I somehow missed until now].
Went for a walk with my family today. What was meant as a short walk resulted in an two hours excursion. The forest is an awesome place to be in autumn. While not yet frozen over the winter it’s still rich of life and beautiful colours.
Even the continious rainfall could not ruin this. We had good jackets [that could not quite keep up with my medieaval Pileus (hat)] and boots. Such a long walk was also quite an adventure for the children who somehow managed all of this without [the usual] complaining =)

AFM has an awesome detailled article on rush braiding:
Skuldcraft was born a few years ago out of the need to create and connect with nature. Horn, bone, wood and stones come together in unique items inspired by nature, history and apotropaic magic.
Whether you're looking for an everyday amulet, an altar decoration or just a lucky charm, this is the place for you.
I’m not much into jewellery myself but maybe some of my #viking or #medieaval fellows find something to their liking at SkuldCraft. The owner offers handmade jewellery and ornaments made from bones, feathers, stones and other items found in nature. I got an awesome print from this shop on my last birthday when it was only on FB. Looks like it’s also on Etsy now and has a discount going:
“I shall give a demo on Medieval/Early Tudor Food & Cookery @ Kingsbury Barn, Branch Road, St Albans. Hertfordshire AL3 4SE on Saturday 21st Sep 2019 from 12.00 - 12.40.

Medieval barn dating to 1379 – yes please 😀
