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.

Thank you

I got the ax in Hungary a long time ago. It is made be a Hungarian blacksmith called Victor Berbekucz.

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. =)

Hello,

Fantastic outfit, one of the best I've seen.

I was wondering, where you obtained your pouch from.
I like it very much.

Cheers,
Dave - Australia.
