GREEK HOPLITE IMPRESSION
together an accurate Hoplite impression takes time, since there is not
much accurate off-the-shelf kit.
real way to go is custom kit, which--as the pics show--takes quite a
bit of patience to get it right.
greaves (almost done!)
am making this set of greaves out of 20 gauge brass. These are form-fitted
and attached properly to my legs, so I am able to run and jump--they
literally fit like a second skin.
I am lucky to have my linothorax being made by one of the best makers
out there, Andy at 4hoplites. Note
the scales on right torso side, for added protection of areas not protected
by one's shield.
custom helmets by Terry Nix
I always wanted a transverse crest on an early style Corinthian, this
is a copy of one in a museum in Berlin.
style helmets like this one don't often appear among reenactors.
