An quick experiment with archery technique

A central place to talk about weapons and armour, as it relates to your kit. This is where you show it of or talk about making it. Discussing the relative merits of types of weapons goes in the WMA section.

here's a set of new traditional arrows I made:

with Bard the bowman's black arrow thrown in for a bit of fun :P


"Arrow!" said the bowman. "Black arrow! I have saved you to the last. You have never failed me and always I have recovered you. I had you from my farther and he from of old. If ever you came from the forges of the true king under the Mountain, go now and speed well!"


Impressive, but if Bard's black arrow was indeed handed down through the generations it makes me wonder how many new shafts and fetchings it had over those years :lol:

What did you use to glue the fletching down Iodo? Are they recessed?
For seven days without eating or sleeping the new king sat, until he stood and cried "This cannot be borne!"!

Just ordinary fetching glue, I haven't done anything clever or historically accurate :P
