There can be only one. Or not. My love of men with swords...

Posted by: Kim Knox
I thought I'd be sparkly for my first post here, something completely ooo...and you know what I want to  do? Post pictures of men with swords. Because that's where my mind has been a lot lately... *blushes* I'm fiddling with a sequel to DARK DEALINGS, and the hero of that novel does love his sword :D

Here's my top three:

I'll start where my love of swords began. Cheesy, but I still love Highlander.

There's also going to be a Highlander reboot... O. o Ryan Reynolds is supposed to play MacLeod. All that work as Deadpool finally paid off. Obviously.

I didn't really have another sword wielding hero grab me again until Maximus stumped his way onto the screen as a father to a murdered son, husband... Yes, thank you, Maximus. Anyway, I was entertained.

And finally, Perseus from the remake of Clash of the Titans. Have you noticed all these swordsmen are wearing skirts? Complete coincidence...

And yes, Richard Armitage doesn't have a sword, and I only said three...but, you know, he could have a sword...just there, just off the edge of the image... *whistles*

Maybe I should follow up this with Kick-ass Women with Swords, because a few of the images I now have stashed away on my hard drive are :D

I've only skimmed the surface of this subject. There's Princess Bride, 300, LOTR and so many others... So who are your favourite men with swords? (With or without skirts :) )

  1. Now you have me imagining Richard Armitage with a sword :D

  2. Is that *at all* a bad thing? *grin*

  3. My favorite man with a sword? Has to be Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn from LOTR. :) Love that scene where he confronts the Ringwraiths on Weathertop.

  4. Ooo yep. I took time to warm to Aragorn. His dirtiness did put me off for a while. I like Elf cleanliness. :D

  5. I agree with Babette. Aragorn, I like 'em dirty. ;)

  6. Love men with swords...or bows and arrows...mmmm...Lord of the Rings was indeed loaded with them. Yummy!

  7. Love men with swords. And would LOVE to see women with swords too!!! Awesome post. Your pics are...inspiring. :D

  8. Aragorn! I very much prefer Viggo dirty. Russell Crowe too, actually.

  9. Can we add in one guy with a hammer? Specifically, Thor aka Chris Hemsworth.

  10. Here you go: And I second the Thor nomination!
