    Sourcing project

    December 25, 2011 by Swg66

    Okay this is just somthing I feel needs to be done for the good of the wiki. Alot of our information is unsourced and I feel we need to start stating our sources like other wiki's do. I have several books and documentarys I can sources and obviously we will site the show, but as it is we have very little of out page information cited. I want to put out the call for people to find reliable sources for the inforamtion we have on the pages, that way no one can say were just making it up, or we're unreliable.

    I feel this needs to be done to help the wiki's credablity as an information source if nothing else. Like I said I have several sources I can put up, but any help would be greatly appreciated. I persoanlly plan on starting this somtime aro…

    On the Armor

    December 14, 2011 by Swg66

    This blog is to get somthing off my chest about somthing the show does, and present my theory on why it's done, and that is the armor used on the show generally being poor representations of the armor actully used by the warrior it's given to. And with the lack of info on the Future of the Show this will give somthing new to discuss other than possible match ups.


    There is one thing as to why I think some of the armor on the show is a poor representation of the armor actully used and that would be budget issues. I'm certain that the show, while making it's own weapons, buy's most of it's armor, The chain mail is the most common occurance with this, most of the mail shown in the show is butted mail (Ivan the terrible being the only one to get…

    In this Aftermath I address what I think was done well and what wasn't in the episode Pancho Villa vs Crazy Horse.


    Frankly I really can't find much that was really good in this episode, I felt this wasn't really a great episode, but there were parts I liked. My favorite tests were the close range weapons, the Inyankapemni results of the head shot was really cool to watch in slow-motion, and the the bolo knife was pretty cool to watch. But the best part of the test in my opinion was they let these guys go all out on the dummy, something they didn't let other experts do in past episodes. This in my opinion was a better way to test the weapons, where as in other episodes they let the experts hit the target once, where in real life a warrior wo…

    In This Aftermath I will address what I feel what was portrayed well and what wasn't in Ivan the Terrible vs Hernan Cortes.


    I'll start with what I really liked in this match, and that is they finally had proper mail armor for a warrior. They didn't come out and say it but on the up sloe inspection I could see the rivets in the armor. Granted the armor was pierced but all the situation are situations where mail can be pierced, on horse back the sword manged to do some light damge to it, naturally the gun went through and the Alabarda spike would punch through to at least some degree. The only point it was pierced when I don't think it would have was when the dummy was pulled of it's horse, but I'll attribute that to a lack of padding.

    I love…

    In this Aftermath, I will address what I feel was done well and what wasn't in the episode Teddy Roosevelt vs. Lawrence of Arabia.


    Overall this was an excellent episode in my opinion. I really liked the Long range test this episode. I had a feeling the Gatling gun would prove to be a more effective, despite being an older design. This was because by the time Roosevelt would of used the Gatling gun, it was at it pinnacle of development as opposed to the Vickers being a pretty new and relativity untested tech in battle. That and the belt feed system jammed like I thought it would. This is a good example of proven technology vs emerging technology, where the proven technology comes out ahead. That being said the Vickers is a steep in the direc…
