Hospitaller Knight 1:1 Scale

Postby Frater SINISTER » Mon Apr 20, 2009 8:36 pm

Well..
Thi is NOT a painted miniature, of course... ;)
However I modified and painted a perry miniature like my Hospitaller costume, so I think I could include this topic here (see viewtopic.php?f=19&t=5185 ).

Here you can see the pictures of me with my brother knight hospitaller costume from the XII century (about 1170-1187):

I used a lot of informations from books and other reenactor groups (I must thanks "Per Braz" from "1186-583" for his Hospitaller researches and suggestions http://www.1186-583.org/ ) to be sure to create a philological costume (not a stupid "fantasy style" hospitaller).

Looks fantastic - just like the models

mind you it has a passing resemblance to certain guy called donald last seen at Disney ... :D

how does it feel to run around in and how much vision do you get from the helm set-up

neat gear,

those shoes look fantastic who made them? Do you do metal edged combat in Italy?

and one more question are you thinking about putting leather or a metal rim around your sheild?

(former metal edged re-enactor)

cheers

Yes, I know ;)
The style of the italo-norman helmet with mask could be know, for joke, as "Donald Duck Helmet" :D

Is not really easy to wear this historical costume. The size and weight are high. In fact with all the clothes, arms, armor and shield... the weight is about 35-40kg. However the vision is good.

The clothes and shoes are the work of Luciano, from "Medieval Design" in Italy ( http://www.medievaldesign.com/english.asp )
The helmet, spurs and riveted chainmail come from "Battle Merchant" in Germany ( http://www.battlemerchant.com/ ).
The sword is the work of "Fabri Armorum" in Czech Republic ( http://fabri-armorum.com/english/ ).

There are a lot of Reenacting groups in Italy. However only a small number are really good and serious.
Actually I do not think I will include some leather or metal rim around the shield. But I could do it later.

I live about 60km south to the city of Torino (remember Torino2006? Winter Olympiads?).
In a little city called "Savigliano", near the frontier with the south of the France.
However I live in the open country.

Here you can see some images of my City and some events:
