I think Shapur and his men just came from a 'dress like your ancient ancestor' costumed party!! Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

Thank you Giannis!
Yes I like the Illyrian too, still needs some modifications though (crest holder etc.).

The photos of Athanasios are really good, especially the macedonian pelta looks very nice!

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other; body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!

Hi all!

I have been out for a while, and now back, trying to get used to the new forum, it has a lot of options!

Here are some pics of Renovatio Arragonis 2011, I would like to ask you some constructive criticism, I would like to improve my impression.

Greetings

Hello Nearco!
Very nice impression!
Thinsg i would advise changing:
The chiton should be sleeveless. Hellenistic chitons were a rectangular piece of cloth sewn on three sides, leaving a cut out for the head on the top and two cutouts for the arms on the sides. Because the whole garment needs to be relatively wide,the space left on either side of the neck cut falls over the shoulders and creates what looks like sleeves.
In fact hellenistic chitons looked a lot like roman ones.

I would also not use a subarmalis, and i suspect the one you wear was designed mostly for segmentatas,with those wide shoulder guards extending under your beautiful muscled cuirass.
Hellenistic cuirasses had most probably the pteryges attached to the cuirass,as is seen in a number of 4th century vases showing muscled cuirasses being hung with the pteryges attached permanently on it.

A last detail,the baldric had better be of a different form and without a buckle. During all hellenistic times the system of the double rope was used as a baoldric. This way of fastenning your sword was in fact basicly unchanged since mycenean times! It is very simple: a pair of ropes tied together. Why they were a pair i don't know!
It is true that from the 4th century we also see simple flat leather baldrics,but never with buckles. For example the baldric of Alexander in the famous mosaic.
