Title: What's your next buy?
Post by: Landrik on June 18, 2013, 08:21:18 pm
Part of being a reenactor is having to buy and collect historical weapons, uniforms, equipment, and personal items. You can say it's a never ending process of buying items for your "kit" and then researching and wanting to do another impression which requires different items.

There's a few people in the hobby I know personally who have HUGE collections and more impressions than you can shake a stick at.

Be sure to post links to whatever it is you want to buy if it's on the web and post pictures of your items when they come in!

To start off, a good blanket buy for me right now are some German lowboots. Simple, and I can wear them for both WWI and WWII. However, the price is outside of my range for right now so I'm looking into getting some other low cost items.

M1907 issue shirt was used up until the middle of WWII, replaced with a collared gray shirt with or without chest pockets.

Then I would also want a collar bind for my early war tunic. This made it so the wool wouldn't rub and irritate your neck. Men often used small scarves as replacements.

I figured everyone would have their own wishlist hidden away until money was there to spend.

Well!

I just ordered some 200 buttons, that's around 210 euro's in total.

- I ordered a sabre-belt made, 120 euro
- Sabretache, 100 euro
- Some new good shoes, 100 euro
- Giberne, cavarly style, 140 euro
- Shako and additional items, around 200 euro

And of course my dolman and pelisse will have to be made, which my mother can do (Isn't she the greatest. She will also teach me some basic stitching, which I atm completely fail at. And yes, it's pretty historical accurate. Maybe not the way it's made, but the end result is). That will cost me fabric too, the light blue kind, as well as a whole lot of braid. I don't even dare guess the price  :P

what hussar impression do you do?
Title: Re: What's your next buy?
Post by: Duuring on June 19, 2013, 01:57:03 am
Regiment 'Huzaren van Boreel' Nr. 6, Waterloo campaign.

Though, it should be said we do have pelisses while those were presumably not present in the campaign (It being summer). More accurate is to say we portray the regiment in the 1814 uniform, of which the campaign dress was worn in the Waterloo campaign.

The group had some uniformal changes just before I joined. The Shako will be replaced by a new, Austrian, model, as well as the replacing of the 'german style' (actually hungarian) forage caps by the French Bonnet de police.

I'm going to be working on my own Pionier kit after I get most of the way through my early and late war impressions.

What time period and branch are you going to do it for? Any theatre or operation in mind?
Title: Re: What's your next buy?
Post by: DeoVindice61 on June 19, 2013, 05:32:41 am
Hmm, I just ordered a Columbus Depot Jacket today for $220. I'm falling in 14th Louisiana, a progressive unit this August.

Yesterday, I also got Richmond Type 2 Depot and trouser from Wambaugh as a gift.

So my next buy is going to be small stuffs like

Farmer Beehive hat from dirty billy's - $120

Forage Cap "McDowell" from Sekela - $95 

Shelter Half from Wambaugh - $100

and A Coverlet (blanket style) for my reb impression - $150


Its just about small details afterward. Nothing big. Perhap I would look into Kibler Knapsack for my confederate but my doublebag Knapsack is acceptable. (Im a Blanket Roll Guy anyway)

Maybe i should start saving up after this for a Enfield but I have to get a State Gun Owner ID but i wont be staying in this state very much soon. I would have to check Maryland or Virginia's law.

Going ahead with the Waffen SS British Free corps late 1944 early 1945 impression, as they were trained as assault pioneers,(even though various photos show them to be mixed, some show standard white piping and some show black,and theres even reference to an officer in a panzer wrap tunic with BFC insignia) when they were stationed in Dresden, they apparently got their pioneer gear from the famous 11SS Nordland Panzer Gren Dvn,remember our FB discussion :) , when they were attached to their recon company. This was on the Oder Front/Stettin (around March to May 1945. But all accounts, including the ones taken by the Soviets when the encountered a member of the BFC in Berlin, say that the unit was fully issued with the Stg-44, which is uncommon for Pioneers, but anyway....will talk more when not at school. xD

btw this is a 1944 pic of the uniform,note they weren't issued weapons till late 1944,due to understandable reasons,also note the "british" style way hes wearing the shirt,the rolled in trousers etc,they also kept British drill

Well researched!

If by British, you mean with an open tunic - this is how it was worn when wearing a tie - which at least I can tell the man on the middle left is wearing. The other may be wearing a sweater in which I've also seen this style of dress.

Interesting they're wearing their trousers tucked into their socks even though you can very easily tell these men were far from the front and may as well be wearing their uniform like the man on the right... which is more common for staff soldiers wearing low boots w/o gaiters.

I've changed my next buy due to unexpected news. A book I've been waiting to come out is on its way to the press right now and there's a pre-order discount.

It's called, "Into Oblivion: The Story of Pionier-Bataillon 305" (http://www.leapinghorseman.com/proddetail.php?prod=9780992274900&cat=5) and is highly detailed and in depth.

(https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/181074_570402902984758_1736589763_n.jpg)

To give a little background, right before Red Orchestra 2 came out, my realism unit settled on portraying the Pionieren of Pi.Btl.305 because of their feats in the battle of Stalingrad. My platoon leader had already bought a few books from the publisher and talked with the guy who has written quite a few books for the company. He convinced him to study up on and write a book on the unit, then when a facebook poll came out for which units the guy should work on next came up, we ambushed the poll and voted for our portrayed unit.

So even now that we're no longer doing realism in RO2 and not even portraying 305, we're still excited for the book and I know quite a few of us are going to buy it myself included. I even plan on doing a reenacting impression on the unit... although I may want to invest some money into many, many faux grenades and 3kg charges.

Patch it up? or unless it was a cheap farby one.

Like he said.

Patching it up may be the more authentic thing to do, if you can find some good authentic patching material for it. Unless of course it was a cheap farby one to begin with. In which case...

Yeah, Altough I never seen a patch on sack coat before but maybe if the material is the same, it would works. If my baby sack coat rip, theres no way in hell im going to spend another 200, i gotta patch that baby up. But ive seen so many thousand time in the crotchal region of the trouser. Its pretty funny anyway, Sky blue and WAM ...polka dots or yellow-green stripe patch.

So I just bought a Briquet for 200 dollars. Yeh, I know, quite expensive, but it was either that or importing one and paying a lot more.

Anyway, I can't really decide on my next buy. It'll either be my first musket (still undecided on which one), or a bearskin hat.

In regards to the musket, I reenact in a militia, and although the original regiment was issued captured India pattern Bess muskets, there were all kinds of muskets used by the original Tercio de Montañeses. So far records show the presence of long lands, short lands, sea patterns, Potsdams, Charlevilles and even a dozen or so Russian muskets.

I'm lost here.

The only medal that can be worn by Dutch troops in 1813-15 is, ironically, the Legion D'honneur. Yes, the French one.

Battle badges, for example those given to the men who helped taking Stralsund, were also worn, but that's just not as cool.

Title: Re: What's your next buy?
Post by: Landrik on August 20, 2013, 04:42:34 am
It was a common award. Three separate occasions for infantry assaults that were successful counted towards them. Infantry had Silver, Motorized had Bronze. Needless to say, I had done more than three offensive events and done well enough to consider them "successes".

I also have the Westwall medal, but that was pretty much unit-wide since early war the Division worked on the Siegfried Line before assaulting the Maginot Line.

I hate that argument. I understand people want to keep their nice little line with the same uniform, but if that forces people to buy things they are inaccurate, I think people don't have their priorities straight. Overhere, The 7e BvL still tells new members to buy charlevilles, because they all have those, while it absolutely proven that the batallion carried Brown besses during the Waterloo campaign, which they portray.

Moustache? Dafuq Duuring? where did you get that? facial hair is considered as a godly thing to have in this period. Reenactors love it when men grow facial hair! And 1st VA Cavalry did wear uniform. Look 'em up. Cavalry do have uniforms Duuring, the offical one in the army roll. The civillians  you speak of are guerillas, not offically in the army roll. They were considered as war criminal to the union eye and which mean death penalty period.  There is a difference between Guerrilas/Rangers/partsian cavalry and "Army" cavalry.   But Guerillas do sometime have their own uniforms like Missouri Bushwhackers had battleshirts, and Mosby's Rangers definately had uniforms

I believe this was the 5th VA, but I could be mistaken. A Virginia cavalry regiment nonetheless. You may spot a few forage caps here and there, but civilian drap is the standard. I think this was taken in '63.

Mr T, moustaches were not as popular with the French army as people like to believe. Sadly we don't have photographs, but facial hair was apparently increasingly out of fashion in the Napoleonic period. It was even forbidden in the NL army.

If you still want to, don't grow a filthy big mustache. If you really want to grow one I can give you some portraits and paintings which shows the apparently preferred 'light' mustache.

I remember hearing that Napoleon started to have dislikes towards moustaches, even ordering his guardsmen to shave them off, which not many of 'em did :D

It's all about status.

It seems that the military followed fashion slowly, but you really can't re-enact a civilian with a moustache. Well, you can, but you'd be terribly out of fashion.

Regular CS regs wore uniforms. With some civilian elements but only iregulars would not have worn uniforms. I also have heard nothing but praise for facial hair in reenacting.

Duuring, I am seeing like 6-7 guys in civvies drabs, and 20 guys in shell jacket and forage/farmer hat. A typical uniform of Confederate army.

Duuring, I am seeing like 6-7 guys in civvies drabs, and 20 guys in shell jacket and forage/farmer hat. A typical uniform of Confederate army.

So that's about 1/3 of the guys in a single regiment. Two years into the war. How can anyone claim 'they didn't wear civilian drabs', if there are clearly some?

My point of all this isn't about the specific uniform, but that even photographs are not something that are not discussable or always reliable. Everybody just kept on their statements even after I showed piccies who prove that they did.

That was your point? Well i will make it easy. Farbs Duuring, you have been looking at the farbs. They dont represent the hobby. Quit looking at the goddamn farbs and check the hardcores or mainstreams guys out. I could say i see so many goddamn colors and uniform in single napoleon ranks at reenactments. But I never will let them represent the real hobby itself because I know there are better one out there and I would follow them for historical acccuracy and research. I follow the Liberty rifles because they really do get to the point and accuracy through report and photographs. And they are considered one of the best civil war reenactment group among other great progressives unit. There are even more amazing folks than Liberty Rifles out there who can show us amazing research.  If LR was to do a 5th VA cavalry impression for a scenario, they would say 10% of men can wear civvies clothes, and 90% of men can wear typical Army of Northern Virginia Impression. Photographs are really helpful if you use them the right way.

The Pictures you probably looked at were small events that get a lot of publicity because of the government interest. For example, Wavre.

I remember reading a lovely FB discussion about wheter the Rebs did or did not loot dead Federals for their trousers.

Sadly, this photograph isn't that great in detail quality, so we really can't tell where the forage caps came from. Sounds a bit unlikely that they would wear a stolen blue one, two years into the war.

Of course, having same forage cap for years may sound unlikely. But you must know there are 4 winters in the war. Virginia do get cold in the winter just like any other northern states.  With expection of the Confederate-Federals in the west because they were already deep south by mid-war. It doesnt get cold deep south.

Oops, sorry. It's a cartridge box (with sling)

Giberne is the French word. In Dutch it's 'Patroontas', though we use the French word just as much, which is why I didn't realize it's different in English.
Apart from a cartridge box, it's also a carbine sling. Not that I have a carbine, though. I do have to get the carbine ring, because the giberne is simply not complete without it.

yep. what state do you live in? I would recommend SA for WWII reenactment, they have the least strict laws on firearms. I would also get yourself involved in the Australian Airsoft Council, they support reenactors to use airsoft which would be alot more fun than blanks. If you are in NSW, Victoria or the ACT you would need an imitation firearms permit. If you live in WA, SA or QLD you dont need a licence to acquire imitation firearms.

Godson, most stuff there is solid for a barebones impression if you're trying to get it all at once in a hurry for cheap. Quite a bit of the items you're picking up are "10 foot rule" good but you're paying cheap for stuff that will possibly have buttons pop off or stitching getting torn. So you may want to be handy with needle and thread or pay the extra dosh for your items.

Your uniform and field cap... STAY AWAY FROM HBT! Save yourself the trouble and go ahead and grab wool. You'll curse the wool when you're sweating through it in summer, but praising it when you're cold as balls in the winter - when most events are! Get HBTs second and only good repros. Not the monstrosities in your wishlist. I recommend getting your cap and wool uniform from Hessen if you can afford it. It's still chinese shit, but it's the best chinese shit. HBTs were not immensely as common as the wool uniforms and you'll look sharper anyways!

Also, on the topic of your boots... those Swedish boots are just as bad as wearing a pair of black mountain boots. I recommend shelling the money on a proper pair of boots that will cost you a lot! Stay away from rubber soles. You want hobnails. SM Wholesale has some in stock right now for over $200, but At the Front (www.atthefront.com) should be getting $150 low boots sometime in stock before Christmas, so buy there! I certainly will.

With wearing Y-straps you don't really need tunic hooks. Those are only absolutely necessary for early war when they didn't have Y-straps for the regular infantry.

I see you placed the nice quality German socks on your Hessen wishlist. If you're trying to be economical (I'm more than certain you're trying to be) I suggest you buy their foot wraps instead of the socks. Go ahead and get 2-3 pair of foot wraps so you'll always have something to change into in case you get rained out or you don't want your feet freezing at night.

Speaking of getting rained out, you will want to get a waterproofed zeltbahn (shelter-quarter) to be able to wear as a poncho and use as a lean-to in case it rains. I've seen some farby reenactors at some events I've been to where they are wearing just HBTs with no zeltbahns as ponchos and almost get hypothermia. They ended up leaving the event early because they had nothing to change into and were feeling sick.

If you're able to, try talking with your Ausreenact group about buying items from them which you may get for MUCH cheaper!

Biggest reason I suggested you get the wool uniform and cap from Hessen instead of Hiki is that when you get your uniform, you'll not only have to buy insignia for it, but sew it on yourself. For only $20 more for your tunic, you can have it all sewn on correctly and with proper insignia. It's well worth the cost in my opinion. Also the uniform will be more durable and last longer than the Hiki uniform. You can always buy these things in batches instead of all at once. But I can't stress how much I recommend buying wool uniforms from Hessen if you want something good and cheap.

...or, you know, you could shell out $400 for a god tier tunic from the UK. :P

Also, get 3 pair of foot wraps instead of one. You can always wear modern socks underneath, and the footwraps will eliminate any extra space in your boots so you'll be warmer and won't be so prone to blisters.

Oh! When you finally do get your shirt, cap, and shoes, you'll want to break them all in. Wear them around the house and look like a weirdo.

I think that should be it... Try to be on the lookout for deals on all kinds of sites. Here's some:
www.atthefront.com
www.mantheline.com
www.ima-usa.com
www.lostbattalions.com

They're all American. Don't know of much stores outside of the states other than a few in UK and DE.

Here's a good site to "finesse" your impression and get into the mindset of a German soldier during WWII. Great articles.

So jealous of that German kits stuff. Least I have something to look forward to when leaving Europe. However I couldn't wait. I managed to buy a trouser and a field cap off from my Gruppeführer for total of 40 bucks.   

I hope to find something in Berlin however East German militaria is strong here......isn't there a East German unit in east coast? Hmmmmm lol.

For some it's how it starts. You want the hat. Then you want the uniform. Then you want the equipment. Then you buy a rifle. Then you find something else you like...

It's a disease.

And being broke is the only known cure.

Is it?
but when your broke all u do is make lists xD

Not really. I've got family that were in the war and if I were to start re-enacting the Germans, I'd felt pretty awkward to them. Well, that's an understatement - I couldn't even look them in the eyes without feeling guilty.

"Yeah, grandpa, I know you sat in camps for four years under an nation allied to the Germans but it's just re-enactment, so it's cool!"
 Nope. Doesn't quite cut it. Whether you do it is your own choice.

That's just talking about the Wehrmacht. Let alone the fucking SS. Also plenty of stories to go around, not just in my family. (Zac, I swear to God, if you say they are, comparably, 'not that bad' again, I'll photoshop a photo of you in Russian uniform waving a red banner and spread it around the internet. Starting with your facebook.  :P )

WW2 is also not that big in Western Europa, just not worth the money. Were I to start re-enacting it (If I could pick, probably do Polish in Exile or Dutch "Englandvaarders"), I'd like to have some real events, such as tacticals. Not 30 men demos. Bleh.

Thanks for the Info! Hypothermia, really?

So I have tweaked it abit and changed it too wool.. and increased the price by roughly $150 :<

If you see anythign wrong, please let me know, thanks for the Help though!

Biggest reason I suggested you get the wool uniform and cap from Hessen instead of Hiki is that when you get your uniform, you'll not only have to buy insignia for it, but sew it on yourself. For only $20 more for your tunic, you can have it all sewn on correctly and with proper insignia. It's well worth the cost in my opinion. Also the uniform will be more durable and last longer than the Hiki uniform. You can always buy these things in batches instead of all at once. But I can't stress how much I recommend buying wool uniforms from Hessen if you want something good and cheap.

...or, you know, you could shell out $400 for a god tier tunic from the UK. :P

Also, get 3 pair of foot wraps instead of one. You can always wear modern socks underneath, and the footwraps will eliminate any extra space in your boots so you'll be warmer and won't be so prone to blisters.

Oh! When you finally do get your shirt, cap, and shoes, you'll want to break them all in. Wear them around the house and look like a weirdo.

I think that should be it... Try to be on the lookout for deals on all kinds of sites. Here's some:
www.atthefront.com
www.mantheline.com
www.ima-usa.com
www.lostbattalions.com

They're all American. Don't know of much stores outside of the states other than a few in UK and DE.

Here's a good site to "finesse" your impression and get into the mindset of a German soldier during WWII. Great articles.

I didn't have any family that actively served on the frontlines in WWII anywhere. They were either on ships or stateside.

However, I did have two great grandfathers who served with the US Army in WWI and I'm a dirty boche.. Both gassed and both survived. Wish I knew more about them.

The Wachtbattalion boots are rubber soled, so you know. It's not an ultimate sin, but eventually down the line you should look into getting proper boots with hobnails and such.

Are you getting a cap and helmet?

The Sturmgepäck they're selling is pretty solid. You can really thrash around with it because it's all repro. ;) You attach it by the two upper hooks onto the rings on your Y-straps and the lower two hooks connect with those extra rings hanging from the front of your Y-straps. Pretty solid.

Nope, Re-enacting the Germans in WW2 is just not an option for me. Luckily, I don't have that much interest in it anyway.

Always great to see more people interested in doing Soviet. The biggest underdog in WWII reenacting.

Get a pilotka and boots since those two items are way more personal than anything else you could buy. Here's a great site for any aspiring Soviet reenactor regardless where they're from. Great articles.

Up next, a fellow Reenactor seem leaving the hobby is selling everything.

What I may buy from him,

- Sturm Zeltbahn
- A frame
- A frame bag
- Y Strap
- repro gas mask canister

All this for 165 bucks.

I'm also heading to France, may buy service belt, k98 pouches and whatever good deal they have.

Ended up paying 180 USD due to addition of Suspender and I picked higher end y strap than ATF y strap. Feeling good to own high quality package.  just need a jacket, greatcoat, low boot, helmet and service belt, bread bags. Rest are just small details to keep me warm during event.

One question for you ww2 mates, where can I find a gas mask? I would like to have a gas mask in the canister instead lugging an empty one.

My dad and I don't have gas masks in our canisters, although eventually I'd like to get one. Not 100% on where to get one without taking a little look around. I will say, however, they are quite heavy and you'd notice the weight difference.

Typically I'd put a package of crackers or sausage in there or anything that'd get demolished in the brotbeutel. My little ounce of farbiness.

Have you ever seen the wicker covered wine bottles with the clasp corks? Those things are amazing and great for a lot of time periods. More resistant to breaking because of the wicker and easier to open and close with the metal clasp. I'll get you a reference.

what type of Feldbluse and Feldhose do you ww2 german guys have?
Title: Re: What's your next buy?
Post by: Landrik on October 13, 2013, 04:39:20 pm
Right now I have a M36 Feldbluse and a M43 HBT tunic. My next planned purchase is a M43 Feldbluse for late-war use.

For Feldhose I have M40 style made by the Swedish Army in 1940. Nice little touch on the inside waistband with the triple crown. :D Also have M43 HBT Tuchhose and a field-made pair of Zeltbahn material trousers.

Now for WWI I have a M1907/14 Feldbluse with regular Brandenburg cuffs since I'm not a Garde. Since my Swedish M40 trousers and the M1907/14/15 feldhose have so much in common (Cut has a few minuscule differences and there's an extra set of buttons for the braces) I just use those. It being over 70 years old plus much use has faded it to a near gray and it is a very strong material and make. One of the few original items I use and plan on continuing to use.

After some looking, I found a shop named Overlord in Paris. Suspectly named after the official operation name for D-Day on June 6th. I went in to find bunch of WW2 items. Bought this repro M41 Field Jacket. This my friend, is not your typical "swag" you hooligans says nowadays. This is "Liberation Swag"!

So far I've figured that the things I'm gonna need first are a gambeson, a belt and a shield.

The shield's the only thing I can't really loan because I'm left handed and it's sort of unfair to borrow a shield off the only other lefty in the group.
Gambeson because I need one that fits me and I can fasten easily, I'm bad with knots so the ones that have ties at the front tend to come unfastened after a while. Belt because I'm a skinny sod.

Won't be buying anything until I'm a few months in at least, though.

New muskets are classified as firearms, so you need a license for it, or, as Duuring earlier said to me, be a member of a historical group for what? 2 years?

That was to explain how bitch they are to get your hands on. Now I think you could better go to germany for them. I thought they were cheaper there.

I HIIIIIIGHLY recommened you FIRST join a re-enactment unit before collecting gear. The change your sabre-briquet is incorrect for the period you want do, is pretty high. And obviously, getting a fire-arm permit without being a member of a living history (For a year) groups is hard. More-over, people are not always to keen on having people 'on their doorstep' saying 'I've got a musket, can I join?'. It gives the bad...impression.

You can always add me on steam if you want to talk. My steam is the same as my name here.

So, I was just officially accepted into the 2.SS-Das Reich Division, 3.SS-Panzergrenadier-Regiment, 9. Kompanie "Deutschland." I already put a security deposit down on my first purchase of low-boots (http://www.lederarsenal.com/en/pages/bakery/low-boots-of-the-wehrmacht-199.php) from lederarsenal.com and have been told it can be four to five months before my boots will even be started. Because I have a huge fucking foot, and I needed special plating and irons in my boot, fucking shit is going to cost me about $386 in the end, security deposit included. Maybe, just maybe, I am making a mistake by starting off reenacting geting the best of the best gear I can find, and SS gear is already expensive even for economy gear I see. But, I truly do believe it's worth it.

As for my next buy; I was going to purchase somethings last week, but my car had a fucking caniption and put me out $800. So, it's a setback. However, when i get my next paycheck, I am going to be buying the next round of gear for my impression:

Texled M44 EM Belt (I'm unsure which one to get, I also have a 50.5" waist) - $59.99 - http://www.atthefrontshop.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ggbm44
SS EM Belt Buckle (This is non-economy version, trying to avoid the Chinese stuff as best I can) - $29.99 - http://www.atthefrontshop.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ggbbss
Combat Y-Straps (I can have the SS "RZM" put on it) - $39.99 (+ $5.00 with SS "RZM") - http://www.atthefrontshop.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=gfgeconY
SS Bayonet Frog (I will be using my great-grandfather's bayonet and scabbard, just have to fix it up) - http://www.atthefrontshop.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ggwssf
Kar98k Ammo Pouches (Two pouches for the belt, hold 30 rounds in each pouch, 2 stripper clips per mini-pouch, might also get the SS markings) - http://www.atthefrontshop.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ggpk98

I'm excited that I will be reenacting soon. I have a year to get everything, though... it's possible it may take that long for me. I've also been getting a lot of help from Landrik, which I am very appreciative.

Got my cavarly giberne (cartridge box) in the mail today. It's pretty decent. The cartridge box is terrific, but there's some stitching on the band I don't like the look of. That's minor though. I need to plunge some extra holes in the cartridge sling (which is attached to the main sling, bit hard to explain in writing) to keep the box more tight on my back - It's rather large, which isn't surprising, considering I'm...rather small-bodied. That shouldn't be a problem though, I know a guy with the equipment.

I ordered some additional stuff yesterday, including shoes (Yes, shoes, not boots), which I expect to get in the following weeks. All in all, I'm making a good progress towards my first event on the 30th of November.

That's a real hefty price, but it'll be worth it. Remember boots aren't forgiving pieces of footwear so if you get them and they're not immediately comfortable you have to break those fuckers in. Also, if there's a mis-measurement by a bit you can always take it to a cobbler.

If you buy in bulk from a single dealer it helps save on the shipping and tax.

Atthefront don't have my size for Jackboots, and their lowboots have had many reports of cracking, so i am a sceptic about getting them...

Godson, what is your unit portraying? If you are doing SS, what unit then? I do believe some SS unit were dominately found wearing lowboot while others jackboot. 

Portraying Late War Wehrmacht? Highly recommend low boot option seeing how jackboot went out of "action" i think '41 or '42

$400 aud for a single pair of low boots.

Yes, I am portraying a 2nd SS Panzer-Grenadier division in 1942. Of course often the W-SS thought they were higher and more important than their WH counterparts, and tried to look better with the shoes (Jesus Christ, looking better with just shoes?)

Originally, I didn't want to do SS. I wanted to Luftwaffe or Luftlande Pionieren. Couldn't find one, so I was looking for Heer Grenadiers or Pionieren, couldn't find any in my area that are active. So, I looked for an SS group as a last resort, and found this huge 100+ member SS-Pz.Grn.Reg.

Post by: DeoVindice61 on December 09, 2013, 12:31:08 am
I started off Heer because two reason. 1. My family would die if they see me wearing SS uniform 2. Landrik preached me how Heer is glorious and stronger also smarter than W-SS 


Really i was lucky with this group tho, in middle of summer, thought about doing ww2 and i see this fb post on living history of a guy about my age "Starting a Progressive Heer unit in Chicagoland" i signed up and here I am, studying photos and journal entry of Hurtgenwald. We are preparing to sleep in foxholes and have prepared our hurtgenwald impression. Best part is, most guys in the group are my age. What a lucky hit.

You just send him a message on that page and he (or his wife) will reply. Payment and such are done 'officially' and you get the paperwork. Not that you should have anything to fear, I know the guy and his wife personally and they are great people.

May wanna check with your group though. His backpacks are the 1801 model, and the 21e carries the 1812 model (Remember, the one that was never made  :P). Some groups prefer uniformity to accuracy. Also check that you get all the strings, like the two capote-straps (Unless you already got those) and then there's a big strap that goes all-over the middle, though I've seen people without it. Probably because it only has real use keeping your dinner plate on your back (Still, looks very campaignish)  :P

I wouldn't have wasted the money on the earmuffs when you could use your toque.

Also, I'm super satisfied with the M43 from Lost Battalions - also made here in the YEW ESS OV AY

Bear in mind, i took it out in most harsh extreme weather.  Snowing all day, all that wetness and the muddy trench. Also your suppose to hold your cap by Y strap or under the belt. And then your fighting all day, it has to be deformed as soon it can be.   


a nice quick reminder from my unit.  "More Dirty = More Authentic"

That's just how things made out of wool are like. Once they get a bit damp they're very malleable.

Nonetheless, Woudl you recommend buying all that Clothing from Lost Battalions? Do you know if they ship to Australia?

Also, how do you buy fro them? Email them what your sizes are and what items you want, get a quote and paypal them?

Post by: DeoVindice61 on December 18, 2013, 06:27:46 pm
If you can afford it, go for it. Lost Battalion are good quality folks.  What i did, i shoot them a email regarding the field cap, they send me invoice on paypal and you pay up. Thats it. Smooth transition.

No idea if they do Straya shipping. 


Godson, last time i checked, you havent joined a unit. For the price of Lost Battalion, for god's sake. Find a unit first before spending big bucks on Lost Battalion if you havent found a unit.   Thats a huge risk right there.

What kind of musket are you looking for? Because, a musket can be anything from the 1500s-1800s.
A percussion cap rifled musket. I'm not very into NW tbh. Everything past NW to WWI is interesting to me. Pretty much Victorian Era.

Nuget = Mosin Nagant(?)
Title: Re: What's your next buy?
Post by: munky-wunky on January 01, 2014, 10:21:25 am
i need to get a nugget but living in D.C. Its going to take a while :/ i need a 21 or older consent. 6 hour NRA courses  papers to be allowed to buy it. Then papers for it to be registered. Ugh

but on the note about the Nugget  (urban dic)

The Mosin-nagant is an old school bolt action rifle from Russia. Originally designed by a drunk Russian engineer and an even more drunk Belgian gunsmith, who drew up blueprints on napkins in the back of a pub somewhere in Siberia in a vodka-induced stupor. The Mosin-nagant fires the 7.62x54r cartridge, which can kill a polar bear at a thousand yards and keep going right through the tree he was standing in front of. The Mosin-nagant was used by the Russians in both world wars, so it's killed more Germans than collisions on the autobahn and under-cooked sauerkraut combined. Surplus Mosins can be found at gunshops in the States for like a hundred bucks on sale, and ammo is cheap surplus, so this is what real men shoot who don't want to drop $1299.99 on an AR-15 which fires a .22 round and that's made out of recycled milk jugs and Legos. Many of them come with a bayonet that's roughly the size of the sword William Wallace used in Braveheart. In the absence of gun oil, you can clean a Mosin by pissing down the barrel and wiping the bolt off with a dirty rag that you found on the floor in a Grease Monkey. Try that with a rifle that was designed less than 50 years ago.

only thing that is better about the k98 is the safety on it.  most folks i have seen don't even use the safety on the mosin  it because of how bad it is.  They just keep the bolt action open instead.

Kill the market - gun control is useful

Let market lives - gun ban completely useless.

A guy from the group I joined is going to hook me the fuck up. The SS-Deutschland was one of the only SS-Divisions that lasted throughout the entire war. I'm going to do a late-war impression, since I have been buying late-war items. The guy from the group told me has so much stuff that is too big for him, and he's not that smaller than me:

M43 Wehrmacht Recycled SS Uniform Reproduction,
M42 Original Stahlhelm with repro liner,
SS-Oak Camo Smock,
Jackboots and socks,
SS Schuetze Collar tabs and shoulder boards,
and he has an extra e-tool with no carrier.

This stuff all cost him $800. He said, if it fits, he'll sell it all to me for $500... So, I'm going to get a huge deal here. I have to wait until the FIG event Jan.28th-Feb.2nd to see if this stuff fits, though. If I get this stuff, it's going to throw me really far ahead of the game, and I should be able to start attending events by the middle of spring. Can't wait.

As for Lebel Rifle, since its antique, id hit up the Antique shop or browse online.  You wont find that rifle in a average gun shop unless your lucky. (I had no luck searching for 1861 Springfield) had to avert to Online.

Yeah that's true. We still make jokes about it.

In the early 90s, when my grandfather made a mighty fall from some stairs, he was transported to hospital. A female doctor from German descent was on duty and after she said something, with her heavy accent, my grandfather stopped her mid-sentence by holding up his hand, and said: 'First, I'd like my bike back'.

Managed somehow dropped price from 250 to 200 for the bike. Can't wait to pick it up and invade Chicago. 1939 Wehrmacht style baby. Landser on bikes vs polish lancers.

Also, planning to buy a m35 helmet from Hessen, Good quality Gemaschen, Heer belt Buckle from Military History Fest.

Made a deal with a guy, getting Zeltbahn, Assault Frame and bag, gas mask canister, y straps m39 I think. For 180.

I need to get tunic hooks, straps for mess kit and canteen (leather all dried and easily torn apart).

That's it for my ww2 kit so far.


Now ACW,  may consider buying a carpet blanket from union mill (coverlet) and waiting on Missouri & boots to finish my Kibler pack.

Did you buy that LB M43 tunic? D: If you did, it'll be too small in the arms. I recommend if you want to buy quality tunic, get a Texled M43 from ATF.

EDIT: Oh wait, those run for $800.

Anyways, I recommend buying something else other than a LB M43 tunic. They do a lot of their cuts really well, but by default the arms are too short. I recommend getting any ol' tunic and then tailoring it if you want to look sharp.

Anyways, I recommend buying something else other than a LB M43 tunic. They do a lot of their cuts really well, but by default the arms are too short. I recommend getting any ol' tunic and then tailoring it if you want to look sharp.

I did not buy them yet. I'm waiting until after the FIG (http://mixwellness.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/figs.jpg) event to get uniform pieces, especially since one of the guys from the group has a bunch of over-sized uniform pieces and gear that he said should fit me. He'll sell those to me for a cheap price.

Not much else to buy, currently. The research to the new shakos we will wear will be done in a few weeks, but I won't be able to wear my shako anyway, as it's only to be worn with the campaign dress. And I don't have that yet.

There's also bad news. We seem to have misplaced five meters of thick dark blue wool, which we were going to transform into a cloak. Not sure what happened with it, but the most likely theory is that we simply threw it away by accident. It was 70 euro's, which isn't a great loss. The biggest 'fuck' of this is that I got the wool very cheap (13,5 per meter instead of 30,-), and I won't be able to manage that again. So all in all, this is gonna cost me over 200 euros.

If there is truly no other vendors having a trouser in your size Petschie...then why not try loose some weight? I mean March is few month away, you could loose some weight by running, cutting off soda, bread, and pasta. 

I mean im not trying to be rude but I think you said Hessen had a trouser that is one size away from 48. So I would imagine if you commit it and you probably could fit in the trouser in a month or two.

I am terribly sorry if i offended you btw, wasnt trying to you know... I am doing the same process, havent been drinking soda since Jan 1st and still not going to drink it anytime soon. I've lost some small weight, I cant run or bike due to the insane weather we're having the Polar vortex. Im forced to stay home lately, but hey, sometime I still get stubborn and walk around outside.  But as weather get nice, i plan to do long distance biking and running around the park.  Im hoping to slim down from 48 to 44.

hiki is a hit or miss. Some stuff is ok, but a lot is not. some units hate him, some units thinks he is ok, as long as you don't buy everything from him. But he is the only shop with the pocketless gym's at the moment so..... its hiki or the highway. 

Also I am a little biassed, I'm friends with him on FB and we talk from time to time. He is a cool dude, who loves reenacting in a country where it is a lot more rare to do.

I have been. I was size 54" five months ago, man. I ordered the Hessen trousers, but it's going to take six to eight weeks to get them.

America is always #1.

In case you guys must know, I have three serious health conditions that cause me to get fat/make it very hard to lose weight; I have a failing thyroid (which means my metabolism is always dreadfully low), vitamin d deficiency, and insomnia. These three together = recipe for being fat. Luckily, I'm 6'4.5", so my fat is hidden, sort of. Now, if I was anything below 6'0", I'd be a meatball... :P I've since not been doing much... umm... weight losing, but once I get settled in my new house, I will be reverting back to going to the gym and eating right.

Dammit munk you are such a farb.

Williams, you asked for a good place, Wambaugh, Sekela, and Stony Brooks Company are good place to get your uniform. Regimental has wrong sack coat construction and inferior quality. However they just got a new coat in addition. Schykill Arnsel Sack coat. Looks ok. Still regimental is notorious for being inferior quality. Many progressive unit do not accept regimentals except for other thing such as tin cup, blankets, just stay away from the uniforms. You will regret it.

i forgot to add link for Stony Brooks Company http://www.stonybrookcompany.com/ (http://www.stonybrookcompany.com/)

I highly recommend Stony Brooks for trouser. It is perfect middle ground for people who strive to be authentic yet cant afford the 200 dollar trouser. The quality is no doubt, authentic and yet for 125. You can go far into museum quality for 195 just for parts where it would be handsewn instead of machine.

Title: Re: What's your next buy?
Post by: Duuring on January 31, 2014, 12:00:50 am
I agree. Get at least your trousers, jacket and hat from a high quality tailor. You'll be able to use it for years and show it off to everybody. Eventually, you got to put everything in perspective. A jacket that costs $350 dollars yet will never have to be replaced until it falls apart over >10 years is eventually just 35 bucks a year, while a jacket that costs 150$ which will tear at your third event is effectively more expensive. Plus it doesn't look as good.

Trust me, nothing gets you more respect from your veteran re-enactment mates then walking around in a High quality jacket to show everybody you mean business.

Damned guys, now I want to do ACW  :-[ :'( :'(

Technically it already exists. It's just two or three guys with a uniform somewhere in a closet, though. Spending a lot of money on a 100% authentic uniform for max one event a year is just not worth it.

Plus, the 25th served on the western front and those guys for the greatest parts had those ugly hats, instead of sexy forage caps.

No offensive meant, Petschie, and I trust you are trying hard, but I'm really yet to meet an American who doesn't have obesity due to 'serious mental conditions'... Or Genetics.

I wasn't always like this. Around the time I turned 15, I started gaining weight. Prior to that, I used to be very skinny and athletic. To this day, neither the doctors or I know what caused this... its unfortunate, but I do take ofense when someone tells me "lose [more] weight." Like, who the fuck are you to say something like that, regardles if it was in jest or not. I have struggled with weight noow for over five years, and I am very self conscious about it.

medieval re-enactment combat = extreme excercise.

it has been proven that 5 minutes in full kitted armour and doing combat = the same amount of weight loss for 1 hour of full on aerobics.

ive lost quite alot, just by doing re-enactment, i dont do any sports or anything. i dont know an exact amount, though.

Our Landrik is currently in Pennsylvania, leading our glorious Heer Battalion to total Reich Victory. He is currently the Battalion Adjudant for the Heer. So That would be Leutnant Landrik. I hope he takes some picture, so jealous of him. Leutnant tunic and crusher cap all that. Lucky bastard.

Helmet? Fit, finally! Boots? Nope... Tunic? Almost!!! The smock fit, though.

I happened to pick up an Esbit stove with fuel and my socks. I really need to lose weight, that's what I got from today. Like, really... need to... like, at least another 40 pounds at least.

I was also trying to find Landrik, but couldn't. Too bad, as we were looking forward to meeting today. :'(

So today, struck me good deal. Bought original k98 pouches in great quality also original bayonet. Both costed me 75 each. And bought bunch of personal item such as matchbox, bandages, and equipment strap bundle. Just also filled out my Soldbuch application and looking for ID disk (probably Hessen).

No luck with helmet. It was worth 80 but seller want 100. I dropped it. Guess Hessen is going to get an order from me -_- damn those shipping price. 

My unit struck gold too. Original first aid box for our Medic, two original ammo crate for $100.

My Belt was too high due to the new Y-Strap. I fixed it though on next day and it now hang in right place. Anyway, was portraying a assisstance to Medic since Pouches were forgotten. I carried first aid box and Walther in holster.

I think the number estimated between 20.000 to 25.000 all together. Including certain... less-then-useful units. Most Dutch Waffen-SS'ers joined out of anti-communism. Or boredom. I've read some newspapers from the war. These people really were bombarded with propaganda and joining up didn't seem too bad. A well-paid job, too. But yeah, they made their choice, for whatever reason. Saying that they all were true Nazi's is as stupid as saying that they all weren't.

A little word of advice guys - When you visit the Netherlands, it's best to not mention all those Dutchmen that joined the Nazi's. It's a bit of a ....sensitive subject. There are plenty of people who know why those men made their choices, but for everyone one of those, you got 10 right-wingers saying they only fight to fight communism and that the Nazi's weren't all that bad and a hundred ignorant Dutchies saying 'THEY ALL BE NAZI JEWKILLING TRAITOR SCUM'.

Like I said...Sensitive subject.

Post by: Duuring on February 05, 2014, 08:53:56 pm
Market Garden was just one part of the liberation of the Netherlands.

The ones to blame here are the British commanders. They pretty much got info about the large German presence at Arnhem shoved right in their faces by the Dutch resistance, and completely ignored it.

In some weird ironic twist of history, in 1813, the Germans (the Prussians) actually took Arnhem by storm, together with much-important bridge over the river, killing most of the garrison and taking the rest prisoner; and this time, they were welcomed as liberators by the Dutch. PLOT TWISTS EHMAGERD.
Title: Re: What's your next buy?
Post by: DeoVindice61 on February 05, 2014, 09:18:33 pm
Actually I do agree Market Garden was a fail but however Netherlands was still liberated by the Canadians alone later in the war. I know Canadians held majority of Dutch land in the east in 1945 and two canadians officers snuck into the line to make truce/surrender with General Blaskowitz.

In my view, the Canadians are the one with most luck with the Netherlands therefore, they are the liberator of Netherlands.

I know Canada has a lot of reenactment units for the War of 1812 since it was an important war in their history. It's less appreciated in the US and we have less Regiments, but there are a few I know of.

Yeah that is true. However you picked a good time to start. 2015 i believe would be 200th Anniversary of Battle of New Orleans. I saw some picture of last year reenactment and it looked pretty awesome. (also hiliarious how most reenactors hit up Bourbon street in their period garbs afterward)

Eventually, when I'm stable with money again in a few months, I'll also be less fat, and I will start working towards the best of the best uniforms. I already bought the best low boots in the world, so eat my nutsack with a spork and schmear, please. Thanks.

Try to not get a Sturm mantel. AntZ has better form to it.

For glasses you could get Dienstbrille which will be the most basic and good for earlier time periods, a good pair of horn-rimmed glasses that aren't Buddy Holly glasses, or Gas Mask glasses which were a common replacement for service glasses if they were lost. Both were issued if the soldier needed glasses.

You honestly don't need the chicken wire or rubber band. However if you managed to make your own 5-twist European chicken wire half-basket it'd look cool as fuck. The modern chicken wire was over there as well, but it wasn't as common.

i like the style, im going with hessen for now since its a emergency.  However i may look around for a good one later.

As I reached the basic completion of the kit and I just bought a 1861 Springfield. I am on a look out for Kar98 only if its a good deal (basically i aint gonna spend anywhere near 800 until next year). The Springfield kinda broke my bank lel and buying greatcoat is not helping at fucking all. But fuck it, think of the joy at teh event. Totally worth it.

Decided to drop the Hessen deal. Going to find some glasses over the time and as for greatcoat, fuck it. I looked the weather for next friday, turns out to be 60 and low 40's.  I surivived being in foxholes in 20 degree and at a point 7 degree in snowstorm only wearing sweater, tunic, zelt.  So fuck it. I am a illinois man, i can handle 40 in boxers.

What is Cook doing with all that money then? Well i'll tell you, BEAUREGARD TAILOR! As you know he is going out of buisness in one month and I have been eyeing his Florida Communiton uniform since Decemember, decided to shoot him a PM and surprise the price is just fitting.  So yes Im going with a new set of uniform and a Federal contract shirt in red wool. State of Illinois were well known to issue red flannel shirt. So hell yeah gotta represent Illinois.

Since I'm heading for the Odessa event April 25th-27th, there are some items I still need. And, am looking to buy the following:

M31 Canteen w/ cup: http://www.atthefrontshop.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ggcm31
SS Bayonet Frog, which goes with my e-toll carrier: http://www.atthefrontshop.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ggwssf
Some blankets (probably two or three, not sure yet): http://www.hessenantique.com/Italian_Army_Style_Blanket_p/rc10244.htm
Belt hooks (x4): http://www.atthefrontshop.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=guabh
I'm also going to be getting some equipment straps too, but those vary in price.

I already ordered uniform pieces in my size from Gavinmilitaria, and they said they can get them to me before the event. Here's what I ordered:

M43 Tunic: http://www2.gavinmilitaria.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_36_104&products_id=46&zenid=aa361cd2a3ab70fbfaa318ad212435d4
SS Service Shirt: http://www2.gavinmilitaria.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_36_104&products_id=115&zenid=aa361cd2a3ab70fbfaa318ad212435d4
M43 Trousers: http://www2.gavinmilitaria.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_36_104&products_id=43&zenid=aa361cd2a3ab70fbfaa318ad212435d4

These three things cost me just a few dollars over $200 since I needed to get them custom-tailored.

I can't wait for the event, going to get to fight some Russians. Will be so cool!

Use pencil or pen to make the tunic straps hole bigger to push tunic hooks in.  Just passing this along because when i got mine, i was pretty confused that the hooks are bigger than the hole itself. Which was apparently, normal.

Well, I've got quite a few new things since I've posted on here.

For ACW I replaced a lot of my shit due to another reenactor selling his infantry kit since he wanted to focus on artillery. It included:
Roller belt
Cap pouch
Cartridge box
Haversack
Wooden canteen (Praise the Lord, it replaced my brown wool covered one)
1863 Springfield (I think the Enfield is superior, soz yanks)
I got a black hat as a cheap replacement for my old kepi that was too damn small until I can buy a proper hat. I'm typically against quick fixes, but $15...

For WWI I finally got a M1916 Stahlhelm from IMA. Go suck it, M1918.
Also, my brother got a WWI breadbag.

I need to get a few items. The collar bind (I got for my M36) from Hessen was a big ol' fat piece of JUNK. For $2 more I could've got one that was MUCH higher in quality from another vendor. ah dun goofed. I also need internal suspenders for my M36 feldbluse.

Just bought something.............from...........HESSEN

Bought a M40 tunic, a product sample. I originally planned on buying M40 tunic from ZIB Militaria. I just went ahead asked my Gefreiter if he knew any other vendor that has nice tunic. He shared me that and said get it.

Was only available in one size.....my fucking size.  8)

Only for $50. Schweet.

So of course, am getting it sewn by Hessen and got Late war material shoulderboard to go with. I used M43 Breast eagle and generic late war litzen on M40 tunic. I want to go for Late war re-issue look.

Also am getting the dienstbrille. Cuz I really need it. Badly. Next event, we doing night patrol and trenches. Bayonet and poor visual dont mix well.

Title: Re: What's your next buy?
Post by: DeoVindice61 on April 07, 2014, 04:17:28 pm
My unit will never allow economy or shitty tunic being worn. It is against our authenticity. I don't know what's up. It seems to me that Hessen send a tailor factory instruction and the pocket came out slightly off-centered. My Gefreiter personally saw one and said it wasnt noticeable at all, Hessen could have sold it without saying it. But good guy Hessen, selling it for 70, now spring sale, 50. I strictly asked where can I get a very nice tunic beside ATF (Fuck those 700 price). He gave me this and i trust him.

Nope, Netherlands,

Bought leather shoes for reenactment today, they look a lot like the historical accurate ones, but actually are better to walk on.
Gaitors cover most of them anyway.

Bah, comfort.
I find my leather soled boots are awful on modern paving, but really easy to move in on grass. No grip, though, so practicing movement if the ground's slippy will be interesting.

In other news, just ordered myself two shirts and a linen coif.
Considering whether to buy a long cote or just get some cloth and try my hand at making a tunic now.

I guess they'll pass better than modern shoes but they won't exactly be close.

And if they're black leather they're farby as hell for medieval, so I disapprove anyway.

If you really want me to be 100% authentic shall i rock up barefoot then, considering that is what the state of most soldiers footwear had deteriorated to in the Peninsular?
Covered with Gators the shoes are virtually invisible anyway. If you want to argue about historical accuracy of any of your kit with me don't hesitate, I am a military history researcher with 2 degrees in military history so feel free.

A small detail can always improve your impression anyday. Do the original cast some justice by being authentic. Don't take lazy way out just because gaiters cover it. Taking the cheap way out in the hobby basically make you just wanna play soldiers.

Sorry if I'm hard on you. I'm a progressive reenactor and I aim to be accurate as possible. If I can't do it accurately then I'm not doing it. Coming from ACW progressive community you get sense of 100% attitude and find it silly for those who skip an item. Ridiculous. Even to a point where a cheap one is not even being used. Even for a military researcher, that's a big shame in my opinion since you're suppose to be the "expert" with your two degree which i am sure you worked hard for. (No sarcasm)

Meh...my shoes are actually just modern shoes. The model of riding shoes just barely changed. Nowadays we call them George boots. Our corporal just found a site where they sell them with the correct visible outer stitching, and doonneeee. They look like the things, they feel like the things, and they are made from the same material as the things. The only difference being that these aren't handmade. Ah well. Farb? Nah. I don't think so.

We are one of the few cavalry groups that do not wear only parade dress. In the field, we wear the campaign dress. During drills, we wear the exercise dress. In fact, you don't even have to get the parade dress (which includes a whooole new set of expensive trousers) as that's only to be worn in a parade which we don't have that much. But people tend to still get it cos it's so fancyyyyy  :P

My aim is to be authentic as I possibly can, at least.

Paid about £20-£30 more to get my shirts (which will barely be seen once I have my tunic) just so I would be in linen instead of cotton. And I'm hoping to start gearing towards camping with authentic stuff as soon as I can.
So far my priorities lie along the lines of:
1. Soft kit
2. Combat kit
3. Camping and shizznits.

Getting full soft kit is my first priority, as I can borrow group combat kit for the rest of the year. Once I have my soft kit sorted though, I'm going to start looking into getting my own helmet.

I have to agree, if we're going to be 100% authentic, the only way that's going to happen is to be a soldier from the Napoleonic Wars.

Am I doing the men I portray an injustice because of the shoes I have on my feet, no I am not. Do I look unauthentic because of it, not really no. If it's been authentic enough to parade in front of the queen, then it's authentic enough for most things. My baker rifle isn't authentic, for a start it's not even rifled, and secondly it's made in india, does that make it any less of a rifle? no, it looks as it should do, and does what it should do (i.e. shoots frenchies (sorry Mr_T!)
Authenticity takes you so far in your portrayal, if you're such a snob about it as some Napoleonic units are, you end up looking like a load of dicks on the battlefield, I'm sure Mr_T and co will agree with that (coughcough rifle units with belgic shakos).

Those pics are from the occupation period in France. They show the soldiers in the exact uniform they wore at the time and there's no reports of the issuing of uniform parts during that period. Furthermore, they have the reports clearly talking about the new style of cap. That new shako didn't drop out of the sky.

Using official army reports and contemporary pictures is not the way to do research? How did you guys find out the Belgic wasn't worn? Where's your proof?

Group wise, the 5th KGL/2nd Light (are they the same group or two different ones?) seem to be great. Uniform is nice (Though I think they use trotter packs, which is badbadbad). There are French and Prussian groups... Just not really sure where you'd find those  :P

This one looks almost exactly like the one you are looking for. But closes in one hour:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bugle-Mayers-Harrison-1954-/181372047620?pt=UK_MusicalInstr_Brass_RL&hash=item2a3a9dd104

Problem is, it has this stupid engravings. I guess all bugles do. Well. Good luck finding one that fits. I think that will be almost impossible, unless you go with the one from that Beglian store or an ACW one without engravings. But these are not like the one you want.. Hmm.

Yes. I talked to one of your Surgeons in Gettysburg.

I think the 5th and 2nd are both part of this: http://www.napoleonische-gesellschaft.de/ right?

The 2nd and 5th KGL are both based around Osnabrück, I think which makes it rather easy to get there as well. Just the "Schleppenburg " is not that easy to access using Public transport.
I can easily get to Osnabrück though. 


Did you talk to a woman?

well, it's a bit mor complicated with the KGl groups :P There are 3 groups. One is the 2tes leichtes bataillon (Deutsch gut ja?) with Mortem and me. We own the Schleppenburg (awesome shit gut ja?) and this building and a few members (normal memebers and Sergeant, Leutnant and Oberst..gut ja?) are based around Osnabrück. The other members are spread from Trier to Kiel  ;) .Than there are 2 other KGL groups. One is the 5th KGL Grenadiers (Grenadier Kompanie gut ja?). They got members from southern germany (Schwaben gut ja? NEIN Ich don't like Schwaben) to the Uckermark. The KGL Grenadiers are a bunch of nice men. I think they have around 10 active guys - not as much as the green KGL but still pretty well.
But there is also another 5th Line group. They are doing the light company (mostly Scharfschützen of the light Kompanie - so they got baker Gewehre gut ja?). They exist a bit longer then the Grenadiers but only got 3 active guys I think (2 from Hamburg and 1 from Osnabrück gut ja?). Well every unit of those 3 is great and we try to work together alot but of course the green guys are the greatest guys  ::)
I don't know where you live Olafson but if you wanna do a prussian impression and you live in the west I would recommend you the Westfälische Landwehr.

Not that it matters, but she is the only one from your group, I actually talked to and immediately tried to recruit us :P


I researched a bit in your group and the other KGL a week ago. I am rather interested in it because it is in Germany, rather close to me I live in Xanten and Osnabrück is like 2 hours away with the train and your  group is quite active.

The best is:Look when you have time, how often you want to drive to Reenactments and what would be most of your interest.

And what should this say: "we have bakers"? Some other groups also have Baker Rifles.

And Mortem: Stop trying to put all peoples to the KGL 2nd light Bat. There are also other groups, who has other aims and are also a good choice.

Nearly all Osttruppen were Soviet POW's conscripted into German service. The 882nd takes a special place in my heart because they had a rebellion against the Germans in '45, on the Dutch island of Texel. Where I've enjoyed spending quite a few summers.

Yeah. I find their history quite interesting. They weren't heroes, nor elite, they were just survivors. The rebellion was brutal and bloody, and still quite a lot of the men got sent to the gulags.

I mean, these guys were fucked by the Nazis, the Commies and the Western allies. They wére the underdog. Just...perfect. Zaaaaac...do you have a uniform picture?

I just back home from Detroit today to a new package for me from Hessen.  As i said i bought M40 tunic Production sample for $50. I was not expecting amazing tunic. Just hoping for a better cut. The M43 i have is quite baggy and tailor thing has been pain in the ass. You can say the tunic blew me the fuck out when I opened it. Did not expect awesome quality and it is tailored perfect. The sleeve is at perfect height and it is snug at chest (Just like i wanted) and I spiced it a bit by adding M43 insignas and late war gray shoulderboard to M40, looking damn spiffy.

Unfortunately my Dienstbrille does not fit my melon head :C  Going to try find other choices now. I will post a full kit impression sometime this week for Munk.

I'm not too positive about letting Coopers Choice make your clothing... It just is not acurately made and high quality as I want.

In de 85e there are two people that can make excellent uniform parts like a Habit Veste and Gilet, I just bought the right fabrics in Hoogstraten for it and one of them is going to sew my Habite hopefully before the next big event! :)

What can I say. Dunkirk? Market Garden? Messines Ridge was suppose to be Commonwealth's Greatest campaign of WW1, yet German retook that hill few weeks later.   Yes I give the tommies credit for fighting on and holding the last line of Democracy. Thankee Tommies. But 'twas the Yanks who broke the German lines, 'twas the Yanks pushed the tommies out of their island into Mainland, 'twas the Americans who first crossed the Rhine.

Just the wool alone was 100 euro. I will see how much he will ask for making it.

After that the only thing i'm missing for my display is a greatcoat (Capote) but getting that thick grey wool is hard right now.

best bang for your buck.   

You dont want mainstream brogans, they tend to be crap. And there is Super high quality stuff that cost 300 or what.  Robert Land is the great middle ground. You get high quality brogan for $10 more than a mexican made brogan.

Dear god they look rigid.

Best thing about medieval boots is how soft the leather is, the sole is hard but the rest is flexible and pretty comfortable.
Means that I can go barefoot in them since my hose don't have feet on them.

Right now as far as my own gear is concerned I'm looking into getting a few metres of wool for a tunic, some better fitting braies and a linen arming cap. Once I've got that I'm going to look into getting my own helmet, looking at a secret rather than a kettle helm at the moment so I'm less constricted by it.

http://www.getdressedforbattle.co.uk/acatalog/Secret-1-by-ULFBERTH-.-H_ULF_HM_01.html#SID=24 Probably this. Though this site is only really good for armour and boots, their clothing is mostly cotton based and they do a lot of LARP stuff lately.

Do bear in mind, Robert Land take a little bit while to make you a brogan. He is pretty popular. I mean I cant blame him. After all he is the only vendor in this market that is actually in the middle. So yeah, folks goes to him like crazy.  However if you do have a size in stock. Jump on it!

I bought a shoddy pair of brogans about 4-5 years ago and they've torn up my feet so damn bad, even with the insoles it makes them barely wearable. Without the insoles at the end of 150th Shiloh the ends of my big toes were numb for a month and a half. I've also had a shoelace dig into the tendon on the top of my foot/ankle so that sucked too.

If I have to recommend anything to anyone for any period of reenacting - it's that there are things that look good enough, things that are cheap for a reason (they suck), and there are things you shouldn't skimp on. The latter being your shoes/boots, your hat (and helmet if applicable), and your jacket.

Actually, speaking of things that are good enough, the black tie I use for German is actually a dress tie that I bought at the Marine Corps Exchange when I lived with my dad. The white collar binds I wore with my officer uniform were actually Marine collar binds that I cut to fit. Also, you can wear certain ACW shirts for WWI and WWII German. Same deal with the trouser braces.

Socks are super easy, hiking wool sock works very well. Grandma's wool socks works well. Those two is where i mainly get my socks from.

Unless you have no one capable to make a sock for you.

Been doing a project with my M1 Helmet, I recently discovered that my helmet I got from surplus store is indeed a WW2 shell. The liner is some plastic NATO shit. So I just bought a complete late war production liner from J Murray Helmets also chinstrap, going to replace the liner and get rid of the post war chinstrap. The challenge would  be sewing the thick webbing chinstrap together. Oh boy.

But before i do all that crap, I also ordered OD spray paint from him too since my helmet is in some kind of khaki shit. Not sure if I should remove the paint or paint over it. Don't want to loose that grainy feel.

I bought a knapsack for $50 at New Market. For ACW I need trousers, a new hat, and brogans. My brogans have huge splits up the sides and absolutely kill my feet. They even tore a hole in my WWII German socks. Bastards need to pay up. Glorious sacrificial rites when we cut the bitch up for scraps.

For WWII I'm definitely looking into getting proper low boots, most likely from lederarsenal. They're also known as Jan Berger boots. I can use them for WWI as well with the puttees.

Why is it so difficult to find WW1 French mess kits, canteens and boots?

Boots are certainly the easiest, there are some repros, but quite expensive. Canteens are impossible to find, unless you want a rusty leaking one, and Mess kits are all originals, which is not really what I am looking for. They are also pretty expensive...

Why is it so difficult to find WW1 French mess kits, canteens and boots?

better more fun  authentic  cheap 


Better - its better in quality since you can do research very easily, not uncommon for unit to research downright to the toothbrush their company use. its easy to find! 

More fun-  Its more fun in battle because marching in line and firing volley for hours do get dry fast. Especially farbs who wont take hit. You're going to feel real dumb afterward.  WW2, its really intense, skirmishing, machine gun, tanks pouring in, and non stop flanking. Tons of activity in WW2 than ACW. Most of time you sit in camp clean the musket and prepare dinner or nap.  In Ww2, you go back to your foxholes, keep watch, clean your rifle, enjoy fine german dining, patrolling the area, when it get dark, we do night assault or solo suicide mission where we sneak into allied camp in search of 1st ID HQ.   

Authentic - like i said, research are easier to be done

Cheap - a entire soviet kit cost you 500, even mosin.   German - 1k-ish,  US (original items - 500-600) (reproduction 1k-ish) 
 

there we go.

Its cartrdige chamber is closed, but everything else works as expected. You can still bolt it and pull the trigger, and the bolt will go forward. The serials on the gun are not identical, as on almost every Berthier Rifle from before 1918.

Got myself a nice quality arming cap. Natural linen on the outside, white linen lining on the inside, stuffed with mostly wool and such.

Baptised it in my sweat today at training, was pretty shocked that it soaked through the entire thing in a few places. Quality cap though, now I can start looking for a helmet.

It's actually a large sized helmet because of the thickness of the padding in my arming cap, luckily it doesn't make my head look too much like a mushroom, even though there's a bit of spare room around the sides. It fits pretty snugly with a coif underneath, anyway, which I'll probably be buying sometime in winter or next year.

In even more exciting news, ordered myself a sword, will be a couple of months at least before I get it since it's from a swordsmith who makes most of their stuff to custom order.
Since it'll be after the show season I get the bugger, it gives me plenty of time to practice through the winter.

Of course when i visited Berlin, i laughed and walked away.  Please.   

But great museum around the area. Good shit. Definitely sparked the seed inside me to get into Cold War era.  The other spark was about how cheap it was.

Derbyshire Arms are absolutely crap... the number of new guns that people in our unit have bought that have gone wrong within an event is ridiculous.

If you're buying new and in the UK I'd recommend Henry Kranks tbh

I got my baker from kranks. Never had a problem with it. The only thing that it didn't come with was a browned barrel but they provided the stuff to do that with. Compare that with one of our guys who got a Derbyshire rifle... Only fired half the time with a hardened frizzen. And then the screw holding the hammer on sheared off and the hammer fell off. Plus the frizzen fell off at Waterloo in 2012. He's not had any luck with that one. Brought one from kranks and hasn't had any problems

Just bought an Zouave rifle for cheap. Pretty good deal. The rifle was not used by the unit we want to reenact, but I do not care too much atm. It was a nice and cheap deal.
Once I find a cheap Enfield I will use that instead and the Zouave rifle will be for our depot gear.

Also we just bought an original Enfield rifle for Vince. Rather cheap aswell.

Surprised to hear original and cheap in one sentence about ACW.

However I must warn you, if you are going to use it for reenactment. That's highly dangerous and banned at most events. Old guns are unreliable.

But it'll make hell of a display piece no doubt.

Title: Re: What's your next buy?
Post by: Vincenzo on July 27, 2014, 08:26:14 am
Which is why it's going to be proofed by a weapon smith before i even dare to put any form of powder in there.


In the Netherlands the law states any gun produced before 1870 is free to have, or produced before 1945 that is made for black powder is free to have. (and some other exceptions)

Meaning modern replicas fall under the law to need a weapon licence, and this is no joke;

- Over the age of 18
- Blank spanking clear criminal record.
- let your mental state be checked out by a psychiatrist
- More than a year a member of a group.
- You must have a weapon safe where your guns should be inside at all times. and only out if there is an event and you cannot ever be not holding your gun.
- You can max have 5 weapons.
- You can only get weapons that fit your reenactment group that your officially registered with.

Oh yeah, you also get regular checking from the police if your guns are in the safe etc. and if you make one slight mistake, like your cleaning it you risk the chance to loose your license for 3 years because it was "not in the safe".


Also these licenses have to be given out by the local law enforcement, and they usually never heard about reenactment, and more often than not they don't even give you your license.
Title: Re: What's your next buy?
Post by: DeoVindice61 on July 27, 2014, 02:08:23 pm
Your laws. I understand. Getting it proofed is okay but collectors gonna freak. Anyway we have a similar law in US but basically any rifles before this specific year require no license which includes modern reproduction. Simply because it was build the same way, not gonna have M16 mag with my 61 Springfield lel.

god bless America.


P.s.  Ever wanna reenact in Murica. Rent a gun because no way you will pass inspection with a original rifle. Just a head up. Now enjoy your Dutch laws.
Title: Re: What's your next buy?
Post by: Duuring on July 27, 2014, 02:14:15 pm
The stupidity of the Dutch law is that a 100% copy of a gun made before 1870 counts as a modern gun, which makes no sense at all.
Title: Re: What's your next buy?
Post by: joer5835 on July 27, 2014, 03:23:08 pm
I knew our laws were stupid, but seriously, do they even make a fuss about you taking it out of the safe to clean it!? I can understand them if they don't want you to walk around with a gun in broad day light, but seriously....cleaning it....inside your house where nobody can see it...
Title: Re: What's your next buy?
Post by: Olafson on July 27, 2014, 04:35:10 pm
Makes no sense anyway, a working original is just as deadly as a working replica. Why is a replica regarded as a modern firearm, while an original is not? And why does everything that is produced before 1945 but was invented/designed before 1870 count as original? An Enfield 53 replica from 1944 is still a replica...

The dutch law is just stupid.

Weaboo is a term to call those non-jap who love japs so much.
 From UD
 
A derogatory term for an anime fan that is so obsessed with Japanese media culture that they think of themselves as superior to their own nationality and/or somehow "Japanese" even though they don't really know shit about Japan beyond "they eat noodles, sushi, soup, like to read manga and watch anime." Basically an ultra turbo nerd version of an otaku or Japanophile. They are oftentimes assholes and ride the tallest horses known to man simply because they have watched something you haven't.

Credit goes to Munk for finding it.
 

On topic of purchase. I have purchased me a USMC camo helmet cover and found a very nice original pistol belt with canteen and one pouch filled with first aid junks and pills.

It's summer, it's hot, I don't have to go to school and I have no job. What do you want me to do? Why go outside or something when I can spend my day talking about random stuff on the FSE reenactor forum!
