Rus warrior by VendelRus Rus warrior by VendelRus
Me in my Rus/viking hard kit.

I'm portraying a central swedish viking with eastern estonian-russian trading connections.

I'm wearing a helmet from Gniezno, a leather lamellar armor, a chain mail, a gotland shield, a peterson type S sword, an hour glass quiver, a rus cavalry axe and various rus-scandinavian bling.

Helmet kind of looks Mongol too but i guess rus and mongol armors influenced each other

Not mongol, Magyar. Both the Mongol and the Magyar are horse riding people though. =)
