Let there be Romans

Another bunch off of face book.  This Roman reenactment group is great.  The picture give one an idea of what the Roman soldiers kit looked like.

Getting better... Slowly

 I saw a spinal rehab doctor..  The doctor is a Chiropractor that specializes in lower back and neck pain.  It is working I feel a lot better.  No tears in my eyes when I move now.   The Doctor determined my right leg was 4mm shorter.   The X rays showed my spine up against the nerve.     The problem is my  additional supplement health insurance doesn't recognize Chiropractors.  My cost is going to be close to $800 dollars for the full treatment.  This is the uncovered part of Medicare.   It worth it as the pain is going away.  Now with my bad luck, I twisted my left knee some how.  This knee has a bone chip that likes to move around.  It is hurting making climbing stairs a tough one.  But I except this I am not a young man anymore.   So much for the golden years of retirement.   Its a lie.. ;)

Slow posting stuff lately

 I have been a little out of commission the last few weeks.   A very old back injury has slow me down.  Today I went to the doctor's to find out what I can do.   After taking some xrays the cause is the spine is pressing against my nerve.   Messed up my back 35 yrs ago.  Old age is making it worse. I'm scheduled for bunch of session to fix the problem.  Hope to get some pictures up soon.

Thanks for following my blog...

Pathfinder: Kingmaker PC game

This just popped up on the Pathfinder face book page.  I really like the Pathfinder, but no one in my small group is interested in this roleplay game system.  So I'm like the lone ranger.  With this being made by the people who created Fallout...  Well has to be good right now it on Kickstarter.

Thegyn Sword

This is from the Thegns of Mercia facebook page.  The page is just full of great information. Now I know what color to paint  my swords hilts for my Anglo Saxons.



Presenting "Unsār" - a sword recreation with a difference. Incorporating a faithful reproduction of the mysterious stray 5th century Kragehul-type pommel from Compton-Verney, Warwickshire by our friend Andrew Mason, a simple hilt by member Æd Thompson and sheath based on various early Anglo-Saxon finds.
The pommel (https://finds.org.uk/database/artefacts/record/id/526418) is characteristically 'Germanic' yet astoundingly early in style - supposedly pre-dating the arrival of Anglo-Saxon settlers in this region. Its tempting to imagine how it ended up deep in the Midlands, of all places, alongside the Fosse Way.
What makes this sword recreation so different, though? Keep an eye out for the next post to find out!

Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham Warbands for Blood Eagle.

This is great addition for Blood Eagle.   Everyone love Robin Hood growing up.  I seen all of them from Errol Flynn to the latest.   Looks like I can use my WHF figures for this adventure. I would like to buy more of the metal figures but the prices on Ebay will take your breathe.

East German NVA Helmet.

The picture should give a modeler a good color reference for painting the helmets on the NVA  troops.  The other photo is of the webbing that was used.  My understand the the light webbing was not used that much.
