Illuminati (SCA Landsknechts)


Illuminati (SCA Landsknechts)

A Landsknecht group within the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) to meet and share 16th century HRE fighting, armouring, guarb, camping, cooking, eating, drinking, etc....  The hope to meet at both local events and the major wars.   This can also become a gateway for other reenactors to take part in SCA events.

The Landsknecht song "Our Dear Lady

Comment by Karl on November 3, 2016 at 6:47pm

We keep a canvas wall tent and camp in the West storage unit for Pennsic but we do not make it very often.  We usually loan our pavilion out with dibs going to the Oerthan Coronets.  The problem is that Oertha's Coronet Tournament (Investiture is the next day here) is less than 2 weeks before Pennsic starts so airline tickets are prohibitively expensive unless you already planned to go. 

I am getting a little long in the tooth to win another coronet here. 

Maybe because I tend to hang out with the Mafia, it seems strange to me that there is no Landsknecht encampment at the big wars that I attend.  It just seems to be conspicuously missing.

Just getting back to being able to go to a war. Pennsic for now. Hopefully we'll be back to Gulf in the next few years.

Dale Dreessen - we are a distance apart.  I usually sneak down south to at least a war each year though.  We are planning on catching the last few days of Gulf Wars in 2017.  Probably camping with St. Michaels.

Love doing the Landsknecht persona. Unfortunately in the SCA we are usually very far apart.

We could use a better group photo.  I have very few pictures of multiple SCA Landsknechts (which is a reason to form this group) so maybe someone else has something?

The round badge or counterchanged halberds in saltire is "borrowable" by any SCA Landsknechts who do not have their own device/badge registered yet.
