Aztec army
« on: February 16, 2019, 09:06:02 PM »
Good evening to all,
12 years ago, I had a chance to talk with Chronofus and send me a copy of your Guide o warrior suit.
Today with the latest discoveries and the online posting of codice, I would like to share with you, and the work of Chronofus, my achievements, my questions, about these little know warriors.
For starters, the nucleus of the aztec army, the commoners:

With slig, with atl-atl, and for the most talented Maquahuitl

It's the same things for Pochtecas, but after:

First captive warrior, Pochtecas had the honor to carry a Feather suit and back banner (florentine codex):
Suit Feather (red or blue), first captive warrior?
Suit Feather (cicitlallo), two captiva warrior?
Eagle or Ocelotl (with banners)

Ocelotl carry a banner like  Cuextecatl Hat or Huaxtec hat, white stripped blue (yellow point in the white field.
For the shield, it'is an interpretation of the drawning (florentine codex), perhaps, in the withe field, it is missing, yellow point like the banner?

Then 3 warriors in Feather suit, and "Temillotl" (hair in stone pillar)
Those are "Tequihua" Too? Or are "Pochtecas Tequihua"?

Are not noble, because don't wear sandal (the figurines yes, but that's no true)

On the botton of the drawing it'is possible to see a "Tequihua", with the same banner of Ocelotl warrior. For me , it's realy a "Pochteca Tequihua"

And has his side, there is a coyote warrior. For me, he carries a back banner, because are not noble, and Pochtecas, like Eagle and Ocelotl warrior, who carrie a banner, but not a fbundle Feather on the helmet.......only banner. It's my opinion.  And You?

Nicely done, I really like the uniforms.

I spent soooo many years waiting for this army; and now I've got one the Spaniards keep clobbering it. :(

Very nicely done they look great. I had an Aztec army 10 or so years ago and it's a fascinating culture

These are gorgeous!
It's hard work to try and decipher the visual information in the codices, I admire you for it.
