Re: [sig] Re: Russian armour
- As I said, the text is an overview of ALL such helms -- starting with the
Romans (Hi Landolf), through the Nomads, and onto Japan (Hi Kythe) and
Europe (Hi Max).
So I guess not terribly excited about the magazine, then?

- he last mask is a cuman/Pavlsky face plate, probably
from 13th-14th century Kiev. Look at the Ospery Men at
Arms, #333 for comfirmation.

stopped it. The first set were ancient Med, then there was another, and the last
(third?) was Japanese. I didn't notice until after I sent the message that there were

- Hi all,
while I was at Pennsic Sasa (Alexander Lemeshko) translated the teaser about
the face-masks: http://www.geocities.com/sasa1.geo/masks/iron_face_eng2.htm
(still a bit overwhelmed from pennsic -- details and replies later -- if I
promised anyone anything, remind me just in case)
