At Battle of the Flags, before it all starts, I'd like to get some people lined up in formations, so we can photo & video how it works. Ideally, I'd like ten people, in 10th/11th/12thC kit. Let me know if you are interested in taking part, and I'll send you on the script before hand. Basically, I want;
- * Tight spear line
* Open spear line
* Two-deep spear line
* Spears mixed with swords men
* Marching + wheel left
* Marching + gate right
* About turn (showing spears/shields/whatever)
* "Dig in"
* Marching with spears over your shoulder
I'd also like to act out various wards, blocks and shots from the Ottawa sword guild's interpretation of Fiore's spear fightbook. If people had opinions on the http://tutorials.livinghistory.ie site, now is the time to get recommendations in.
