Not even nord recruits or nord archers, or some of the crappier bandit dudes that roam around the nordic lands? :(

suggestion: remove the iron outlets on the "weathered shields"

I can give new tunics to lords as their no war clothes.

Nice shields, only thing I would say is that there's no actual evidence for metal rims. At least, I've read that there isn't. Leather rims held on by metal nails would be more authentic.

Viking Re-enactors generally seem to use metal rimmed shields. Perhaps this is historical, or perhaps it just makes the shield last longer when re-enacting. Re-enactors are normally pretty anal about their kit. If there was proof that metal rimmed shields were never used, i'm sure re-enactors wouldn't use them.



I could change the rims to be leather. Perhaps It would be good just for the battered shields and some of the more basic designs.

Cheers

Well, the re-enactors in your earlier pictures are all using leather/hide rimmed shields as far as I can see. This was the page I read the information from. Proving they were never used is a different story, of course, but I think they were extremely rare at best. At least some would have survived if otherwise - metal lasts better than wood or leather.

I think even the one I posted above is probably hide.  It's just well conditioned and a light colour, therefore it almost shines like steel.

I think you're right that if metal rimmed shields were used, we would still find the rims today. I'll take a look at the rims soon and see if I make some convincing looking hide edges.

Cheers

I think we don't have to be 110% historical correct. Hollywood defines most of the impressions people got. Doesn't matter that much if its not historical proved. Or should we talk about vikings using long pikes?!  :roll:

However the shields looking wonderful ingame.  :D
Tunics are also a piece of nice work, but i think they don't fit that well for elite troops in battle armor ..
