    Greetings from Middle-East Europe

    Post by Flippy on Mon Jan 16, 2012 2:37 am

    Hi all mates here!!!
    I'm from Middle-East Europe, from Hungary...
    Building a medieval crossbow was a dream since my childhood... it came to fruition about a year ago... when I build this.
    Aside the crossbow I plan a full 15th century crossbow milita 'impression' including steel helm, chain hood, gambeson, brigantine, period dress.

    It's a LARP crossbow so I have a LARP sword beside...

    In the future I plan to make a late 1500-early 1600' non-LARP crossbow(photos are welcome!!!). I have friends who reenact Hungarian early hussars and merecenaries in that period(at castle sieges they used recurve bows, muskets, crossbows, anything that shoots).

    Hey Welcome to the forum, always glad to see anouther reanactor on the forums. Sounds like you have you plate full of fun things to build.

    A bit off topic: Did the Hungarian Hussars wears wings like their Polish Conterparts?

    No wings, no mail... Hussars as light cavalry originate from Hungary... and is absolut light cavalry(maximum chain mail, and steel helmet, since late 17th century, no mail).
    Polish ar at least middle(I think heavy) cavarly, hence they were called hussars.
    Hungarian hussars in the 16-17th looked like cossacks, or turkish milita... in 18th they got theyr classoc form...

    I hope that I told it right... pale

    Some photos... the title is wrong not all of them are hussars...
