There’s a Norse dragon on it instead of a rattlesnake, and it’s painted on a Viking shield instead of a banner or a morale patch, but that’s the Gadsden Flag alright. It’s the new Gadsden Flag shirt from Anachrobellum: Til Valhalla III: Don’t Tread on Me.
As you can probably tell from the name, they have more than one Viking-themed design available.
In addition to “typical” Viking fare like a bearded ax, helmet, and chainmail armor, the Norseman in the image is also equipped with a variety of implements that will no doubt be familiar to Mag Life readers. Not least among those is his SBR, which, it should be noted, sports such accessories as:
• a PMAG (of somewhat indeterminate FDE/coyote tan color
• a Magpul Ranger Plate (it’s difficult to tell which one)
• elements of what appears to be a MOE Mid-Length Furniture Kit
• some model of Streamlight
• a red dot sight
• an RDS magnifier in one of his mag pouches
• some sort of silencer
Similar accouterments adorn his helmet and ear pro, the mag pouches of his load-bearing gear (LBE), and presumably whatever sort of pack he’s wearing.
Those juxtapositions make sense when you consider the name. The term Anachrobellum (www.anachrobellum.com) is apparently a combination (of sorts) of anachronism and the Latin word Bellum: war. Anachrobellum’ss designs typically focus on a mish-mash (kitbash?) of gear from historical warrior archetypes and modern special operations personnel. You can follow them on Insta, @anachrobellum.
