Bows / Crossbows

Post by Gimzod » 2014-03-01

Hey guys,

Old Waaaagh! member coming back to Darkon. Made a new tabard in celebration of the fact, made sure my other stuff was up to par and not painful to stab myself with. Figured I'd go ahead and ask the following question:

Any recommendations on where to get a bow or a crossbow that isn't modern looking that would abide by the Darkon rules of 10-40 lbs, and would someone be willing to run me through proper arrow construction? Figured since the rulebook suggests talking to a veteran about it, may as well see if I can some response in forum.

Thanks ahead of time!

At this point, I guess I just need arrow construction tips, as I got a decent bow that fits the requirements of Darkon's rules. Are there people that are willing to run a new archer through the steps? Just seems like a good idea so I have a better chance of figuring that out, though I figure I could ask a weapon marshal at the next event as well.

Internet is good place for bows, or Yard Sales/Flea markets. As far as arrow construction, Halcon of Northern Kingdoms makes a good arrow. You can also ask any Archer you see how they got their arrows.
