2016 Knight's Tattoo Cup Tournament in Tauranga
Last week at the Tauranga Art and Tattoo expo we sat down outside and watched these guys mock fighting with each other. Dressed in makeshift medieval armoury the Tauranga Armoured Combat Club were competing in the Medieval Battles Tournament against other likeminded faux knights, I believe these competitors were from both Australia and New Zealand.
Looking at them I thought their armour looked quite heavy, however this article says one of them makes his own. The winning team takes home the battle prize: The Tattoo Cup :-)
