Show here your Germanic warrior impression

Quote:I thought the only lack might be decorations on the shields, but by now perhaps that's been done?

Nope, but for a specific reason: in particular we would like to take inspiration from the Harii tribe, that Tacitus depicts in the "Germania" writing:

"nigra scuta, tincta corpora" = "with shields and bodies painted in black"

Actually I don't understand what in our work can be described as "silly"... without any doubt we have some lacks (who don't?), but as for III B.C. Celtic reenacting that we practice since 2001, for the I-II A.D. Germanic reenacting we would like to be as precise as possible...
