I'm Cam. Plenty of people call me Hermann, but call me what you will. I've been gazing upon the reenactment community for quite some time. Until recently, I've either been too ill or too busy to be involved beyond making the odd piece here and there for people who've requested them (shields, leather things, weapons, et cetera). I have some ongoing projects, simply for the fun of it, and to develop my craftsmanship. Hoplites, Zaporozhian Cossacks, and the Kyiv'ska Rus are enjoyable and challenging topics.
Now that life is starting to slow down a bit, I figured a livelier hobby was in order. Why not reenactment, beyond simply making or buying pieces? It seems like a decent way to meet people who share such an interest.
So, anyways, after much thought and research, I want to attempt the Suebi. They just seem to jump out at me. I mean, part of my family originates in Schwaben, though the ancestral factor isn't the whole point of this persuit. I've already began construction on a shield and spear, as my first pieces. I think this may turn out alright.
