Hello,

Does anyone know where I can find a reconstruction drawing of a Frankish warrior with a francisca?

Thanks in advance,
Best regards,
Jef
Osprey's "Germanic Warrior 236 - 568" by Simon MacDowell and Angus McBride has a reconstruction plate depicting a Frankish Warrior based on typical grave finds as gear. Plate L is a full color representation from 6th Century A.D.
Good Luck!
They are Bitmap Images that I have not figured out how to post yet. Any clues?

I sent the pics. You've got Mail! The pictures not the armor :twisted:
Hello

We have included a picture of two frankish warriors circa 450 in the first issue of DESPERTA FERRO magazine. Free download from: www.despertaferro-ediciones.com

Hope you like it.
If memory serves me correctly (though it rarely does,these days),wasn't there a colour plate in Osprey's,Rome's Enemies (2),Germanics and Dacians,depicting 3 Franks,in "native" dress,one of whom was wielding a francisca?.
Wow Alberto, the pics look superb Confusedhock: . Who is the illustrator, if I may ask?

Hello Jyrki

Glad you like them!
He´s a young spanish artist, José Daniel Cabera Peña, who will be working with DESPERTA FERRO. I think he´s one of the best illustrators I have come by!
Great, thanks!
Thanks Alberto!
