Schon seit längerer Zeit nutzen wir verschiedene Webtechniken, um Gürtel, Borten und Bänder herzustellen. Damit diese Projekte auch mobil sind, haben wir in den vergangenen Jahren mehrere einfache Webrahmen gebaut.
Der grundlegende Bauplan ist dabei sehr einfach: auf eine rechteckige Platte werden an den Enden jeweils zwei Dreiecke aufgeschraubt, die dann mit den Rundhölzern oben und unten verbunden werden. Das jeweils untere Rundholz (alternativ Vierkantholz mit Klemmbrett, um Bänder/Fäden besser einspannen zu können) ist dabei drehbar.
Natürlich ist das ein relativ primitiver “Anfängerrahmen”, dafür halten sich die Materialkosten in Grenzen und auch das notwendige handwerkliche Geschick ist überschaubar. Die Basisbretter der Webrahmen lassen sich wunderbar bemalen und so individualisieren.
On the first weekend of Janurary 2022 we were honourd with a special guest. Lord Aelric of Battle form the Shire of Meadowmarsh (Barony of Knight´s Crossing) kindly visited our humble fighters practise. With inexhaustible power he gave everybody an individual teaching. We connot thank him enough for sharing his knowledge for improvind our fighting skills an hope to meet him again in March at Meadowmarsh Boot Camp in Düdelsheim.
Whilst the new Covid-19 Lockdown preventy heavy Fighting, we take a look in our heavy fighters archive. We detected a lot of reenacted quotes, taken from Shakespeare´s greatest plays. So enjoy our “Heavy Shakespeare Reenactment Gallery” (to be continued).
As part of Austrian lockdown measures all sports involving physical contact are forbidden until the end of November. We will see, if there will be any heavy fighters practise in 2020. Stay safe, stay at home. Good luck everyone.
We have to face the truth: there is not much time left until Parasol War V. Ad Flumen Caerulum is happy to host a really exciting event including lots of heavy fighting. We want to present us in the shiniest light, so we have to intensify our training. Join us at HTC site as every Wednesday!
We do not follow maps to buried treasure, and X never, ever marks the spot. But it marks a point relevant for your footwork. So we will continue our heavy fighters practise concentrating on footwork. Join us this Wednesday at lovely HTC site in the Vienna Prater. Come and learn with the heavy fighters of Ad Flumen Caerulum!
Hooray! Three Wednesdays a week is pure luxury. Thanks to HE Barobrand we are full of new toughts (and fresh bruises) to improve our training. So join our freshly motivated heavy fighters for next fighters practise at HTC site in Vienna.
Since it was so much fun we will continue this Wednesday our shieldwall-drills and add some advanced techniques. It´s also the last possibility to test euquipment before Düdelsheim Boot Camp, so join us for heavy fighters practise at HTC site.
If you are afraid of a shieldwall, become part of it! As we have the
advantage of numerous heavy fighters in our shire, we will use it for a special
practice. In preparation of Düdelsheim Boot Camp at Meadowmarsh we will do this
week some drills in small groups. Stick to your partner, don´t loose contact,
be aware of the opponent next to your opponent, watch out for long weapons,
obey the Rules of Engagement, save ground position etc. etc. etc. There is a
lot to do at this Wednesday, so join us at HTC site!
