Show here your Germanic warrior impression
Yes, the Renatus and his group(s) are making very qualitative impressions of more cultures.

My Germanic sword scabbard is made much like yours, Renger, minus the chape.

Hello

I just wanted to show you all my Germanic warrior impression. The clothing is based off finds from Thorsberg and Marx Etzel. The belt is a typical 'achterschnalle' belt. I also have a large utility knife, a fire starting kit, small scissors (these are believed to show that one owned slaves), as well as my personal pouch with various items (several roman denarii, a hairpin for a suebian knot, a game dice, and other odds and ends). My sword is a captured (or gained through service in the roman imperial guard) Roman spatha. My spear is a larger lance, and these spearheads fell out of use during the Romano-Germanic war (12bc to 17 AD). My warrior type is one that would ideally be classified as 'cavalry', but some experts believe that some chieftains only rode their horses to battle, and fought on foot. At any rate, the warrior I am representing is obviously of the elite warrior class, and is either a senior member of a retinue following, or a minor chieftain.

Thanks at all.

Joze, please, if you don`t no any facts don´t tell wrong stories.

My Diersheim spatha was not made by Xorx / Schorsch. But my illerup spatha is from him.

My Diersheim spatha was made by Martin / FLAVIVS from the römische-schmiede
Martin makes very fantastic roman and germanic replikas.
Look at his homepage www.roemische-schmiede.de

Complimente Martin!!

It's germanic/Batavian. Adrian Wink wrote an interesting article on them, which now seems to be offline, unfortunatelly. Several (reused) gallic helmets were found, for instance at Krefeld, with fur attached to it. I personally think we can probably link this fashion with the cavalry helmetfashion as I outlined in my talk at the latest RAT conference in York.

Thanks Jurjen, that link sounds interesting! I never thought about it. With the few Germanic helmets and the almost complete absence of a "Germanic" helmet tradition, heavy Roman influence may also lead to such a link. Worth a thought or two.

I was wondering if someone could answer this....Other than what Tacitus mentions in his accounts is there any more solid evidence for first century Germanic men wearing untailored tanned animal pelts as coverings/cloaks? -----John

I have no historical references for this, but people everywhere who live in frozen winter climates have always worn furs. "Untailored"? By this do you mean with leg skin still attached and not cut into a smoother shape?

Well, I would love to see any reference for such a bolt statement, as I find it all too easy assumed.
