General Thoughts and Some Links

Its been a crazy few weeks for me! I have been packing and getting ready for my move to sweden and getting all my paper work together has been wild.  I have been counting forks and plates 🙂

So here is something I been meaning to post for a bit now! On the La Cotte Simple site (http://www.cottesimple.com/ )  there is a great pattern for a Marshal Surcotte! They look great and will cover up any of the plastic or ugly armour you have!

Also, if you are looking for links on effigies or Manuscripts this site is wonderful ( http://manuscriptminiatures.com/ ), this ties nicely in to the “La Cotte Simple”  because if you are looking at doing a 14th century kit you will see in the manuscripts how many marshal kits have surcotte.

Final thought of today, is foot work.  I think that I need to redo my footwork; there is alot I am missing in my foot work that can be fixed.

King Edward III Quarter Nobles

I picked up 10 King Edward III  Quart Nobles the other day from Jehan de Pelham

They are very nice have a good weight and seem to be very close to the correct look for a early 14th century coin.

But I think the question is why did I pick them up?  Well the truth is I am hoping to do ready for the combat of the thirty (COTT) at Pennsic.  From what I understand it is good to have a ransom or it might be minatory 🙂 still not sure but I figured a few cool coins and a nice chest with cheap wine makes everyone happy.    I am not sure of the period worth, but from what I can tell they would be worth about a 1/4 pound each and a pound would be a good salary for a man of my “station” in this time period.

So that is my thought process, and reasoning behind the coins.
