    Really like 2, 5 and 6. Gotta ask, anyone get hurt doing this?
  4. Thanks Karen :D 

    Cheers Rick :D 

    No injuries that I saw, except that the guy with the whip managed to hit himself :D  The facial scarring in #6 is fake, but very convincing.

    I must admit I was somewhat relieved to see some of their "brands" peeling off later in the day - people can take re-enactment a little too seriously ;)

    Marvellous series, Al!
    These people really look the part.

    I agree with Karen, #1 and especially #2 are really outstanding!
  6. Very nice series, I like the conversions a lot.
  7. #1 and #2 are great, and I have to add that the one guy looks a little too happy while grabbing the other guy! The face in #6 is right out of a history book!
