Very nice Patrick! Do you think a subarmlis with pteryges would be suitable for this period?

thx! Smile
It's very difficult, because we have many icons where it is show pteruges / steel pteruges too, but it could just be "ancient stylisation". Not any byzantine military treaty does not mention pteruges used in the byzantine army during this period. There is one exception relating aboute circus formation. Sorry for my english Smile
Thanks Patrick, very interesting!

Awesome! That's something I want to do, 14th century Byzantine.
Well done Patric
Thanks again! Smile
my simply byzantine stuff (all) :
My full reconstruction - byzantine infantryman second half of 12th century.
To return to the pteruges question, there are many illustrations of Byzantine soldiers where apparent pteruges are shown at the shoulder and hip. They are sometimes shown in conjunction with other figures wearing scale or mail armour of "normal" construction. This suggests that the defences depicted are real. However, lifted arms show that the shoulder strips are not separate, they are connected to form a type of tubular rerebrace. Similarly, the depictions of the skirt strips never show any gaps or disarrangement of the strips, also suggesting that the strips are not separate. Just as the lamellar klivanion had the same outline as a classical muscle cuirass, the strip armour was also favoured because it gave the soldier a superficially classical appearance, but the construction of these defences was not identical to those of classical armours.

Hi guys! Do you know anyone who might be interested in buying a lamellar cuirass and an eastern viking /byzantian/varangian helmet? (check here):

I would be interested in the helmet, but probably would not fit me! Confusedad:
