Diego's Romano-Briton spatha:



I read some Arthurian: Total War prephaces for factions. There are some great things (maybe I'll include some of them in mod), for example Urien's campaign of "northern coalition" against Angles from Deira and Bernicia, ending at besieging of Ynys Metcaut (Lindisfarne) for three days, while Irish allies, under King Fiachna of Ulster, ousted the Saxons from Din-Guardi (Bamburgh). Imagine, how history could be different, if man (Llofan Llaf Difo) of jealous Morcant Bulc of Bryneich didn't assasinate Urien. Maybe Angles won't stay on island and Urien will create another coalition with souther Briton and Welsh kingdoms (like Powys, Gwynedd, Elmet etc.), in order to completely destroy Saxons and Angles.

Agraes, could you contact me on MSN messenger? I decided about new name of mod and some other things.

Some more stuff. Note that I won't be around from monday to next friday.

Pictish axe
Generally know as the 'T-bar' axe. Note this is a handaxe.



Pictish cavalry axe
Same with a longer staff.

Saxon great axe (A) and cavalry axe-hammer (D)
First one would be a two handed axe, I guess vanilla axes could fit with a tad smaller head.
Second one is the axe found at Sutton Hoo, note that the shaft is also in iron.



Frankish great axe
This would be a two handed weapon.



Axe-hammer
Single handed axe, probably a tool.



Pictish two handed axe
Same head than above, but two handed axe. See here:



Germanic spears
I think several ones could be cool. Here some documentation.



Hasta (roman spear)
Shaft could be painted with several colors (see my avatar).
Lenght: around 2 meters with the spearhead.
First one from the left would be really cool.



Irish ribbed spear
See (n) on this plate. Would be good against shields and armor. Some other nice spearheads here.



Angon
This is a must-be included weapon. It was primarly designed to be thrown, to make the ennemy shield useless or even reach the flesh behind it. It was a weapon with a great fame among the germanic nobles.



That's all for now! Don't hesitate if you need more detailed pictures of some of those. I tend to post drawings or photos of archeological pieces, but it might be easier to work with reconstructions of those weapons.

I've searching a good texture for this helmet (Spangenhelm) because model it's done but I can't find a good texture.
If somebody have it please post here a link.
P.S. I have idea, I've done two version of this helmet. First have a cheekguards (like on this screens by Morcant) but second don't have it, it's simple head guard helmet.

Caledonian shield. Might be too large, it is as wide as the kite shield and height.

Texture isn't really bad, just need some improvements.

Rath0s, your shield is too large, though texture is very good. I'm going to show you some new stuff today.  :)

Im back around! Great work guys! Good idea for the spangenhelm with/without cheek guards. You can also variate with a horsehair plume, with/without mail neck guard, and for the texture you can have a plain steel one without decoration, another with gold/tin/silver plating, and another really decorated (see pictures).

Kolba, your "round scutum" have a spine and shoudln't have it, at leat for the Britons. Maybe Picts can keep shields of this sort as beeing more "archaic".
