That's a cool kit! I'd like to do a Celtic impression one day, the only problem is that there isn't much out there you could buy that resembles the equipment of a first century AD Briton. I'd probably need to make the garments myself, and my sewing isn't up to scratch. Also, most people only sell La Tene swords from around 200 BC, so finding a sword or shield might be difficult.

You could always cut down an old sword blade and make a custom La Tene sword. I do it all the time. You just need to find an old double edged blade or sword for sale on Ebay, and then use an angle grinder or bench grinder to grind the tang down to what you need, and then just carve a wooden handle for it. For a scabbard, you can easily make one out of thin sheet metal, or even cut a larger copper pipe in half, and then make it form there. If you want more tips, and some diagrams of La Tene sword assembly, just send me a PM.

Nice impression, Patrick - i have presented my items here in the forum months ago, as well, but i am not showing them all here all the time.
About the clothes and swords:
we all were beginners and you should to try to sewing the items, working it regulary you will doing the footsteps-progress. The swords: we have the replicas usually and in this way it goes not to buy an existing "blade-form" because you should to adopte and remake it on the clearly correctly mass-form of the originalls.

Actually there are a few ready made blades you can purchase to start off with.
These can be customised to a certain point too.
Better kit can be saved up for!
