Re-arranging my sword collection...

Postby Big Lazy » Wed Mar 07, 2012 12:24 pm

So I'm having a bit of a re-shuffle and thought it would be fun to post some pics of a selection of my gear, just to see who can correctly name them all. No prizes, just a warm feeling in ya belly lol

Cheers for the heads up but that way over budget for a starting piece lol that's more of a centre piece, I do rather like that Barnett lionheart sword you have and for £75 you can't go wrong!

From left to right, Glamdring, Hanwei Godfred, Arms and Armor Edward III, Valiant Castille. No idea what the far right viking sword is, maybe an Eric the Red derivative. Am I close or just a nerd?

I should know the answers after all the time that Larn and I have been posting here but Medieval swords just ain't my thing.
I think that the mystery sword is a Rob Miller custom job though. :S
