I participated as a Transylvanian man-at-arms and banner carrier.

Sturmpionier, are you the little guy at the left? :ph34r:

Great show! Congratulations for the organizers!

Unfortunately, the medieval groups of Transylvania had not participate at this event. Another international historical show with no romanian presence, even if the Romanians fought during that battle. :(

I only hope that next year some Romanians will joint other enthusiasts and will bravely “fight” against the Ottomans.

Well, at least the flag of medieval Transylvania was present, courtesy of our very own Sturmpionier!

All of the Bulgarians ( except me and 2 knights) played the turks.


Actually, most members of hisotrical reenactment group "Chigot" - Varna were also present. There were 10 fighters (and 4 squires), 7 of them "playing" crusaders. We can be seen here and here

Best regards,
Medka

Greetings from Hunedoara, the Castle of John Hunyadi [ENG] (Ioan de Hunedoara [ROM], Hunyadi Janos [HU]).
Many thanks to Mihai from Traditia Militara from bucharest that pointed me to this forum.
I am one of the leading members of a medieval reenactment group called "Ordinul Cavalerilor de Hunedoara" (The Order of the Knights of Hunedoara), oriented towards XIV-XV century reenactment.
Here is our website (only in romanian for the moment) where you can see some of our pictures.
http://www.ordinulcavalerilordehunedoara.110mb.com/
Also we have posted some short clips on Youtube (search for "Ordinul Cavalerilor de Hunedoara").
We would be interested to participate at the reconstruction of this battle, especially because Ioan de Hunedoara was there too. It would be a honor and a privilege. We should establish a contact to sort out logistics and details.

To Lupul Alb: In what percent is your equipment historical acurate for not only the era, but also for the region of Iancu de Hunedoara, I mean Transylvania and/or Hungary? How did you documented the military training of your reenactors? How did you documented the equipment, weaponry and coats of arms?

Every medieval reenactor knows how hard it is do properly document and recreate medieval equipmens from XIV - XV century, due to so very few surviving artefacts and scarcity of the resources, especially in Eastern Europe.
I can't say that our equipment is 100% accurate and I am sure that nobody will claim that :) but we are doing the best we can to recreate our equipment as similar to what we know about those time as we can.
We have some books, pictures of medieval church paintigs and several web resources posted by other reenactors. Also we have contact with the personal of Corvin Castle museum and also Bruckental Museum in Sibiu.
Medieval Transylvania was a "melting pot" for many influences in weapons and military equipment, so many knights or men at arms would have had a very exotic and heterogeneous armor and weaponry. We still have a lot work ahead but we are trying to do our best as I have said before.

Thanks for the answers! Glad to know that at least one romanian medieval reenacting group try to recreat the proper atmosphere from medieval Transylvania, and documented. I saw too many medieval reenactment groups in Romania who made just show for the public and their equpiment being pure fantasy. At one group they used even a sword copied after Conan the Barbarian. Don't aks which group used this sword in public at one show, cos is too well known and I dont want to point at them, but this is the situation.

Congratulations and hope your group will have a long and prosperous activity!

About our coat of arms. We are respecting the old coat of arms. We are not using any existing coat of arms since we are not members of those nobiliar families, but our coat of arms are made after the rules of heraldry and could have been real in that period. Every knight receives his coat of arms in a ceremony after we had served at least 6 months as a squire to another knight. Usually the period of aprenticeship is longer, the shortest period as a squire was at least an year :).
