I heard a rumour from Kelly, so it may not be that reliable, so I'd like confirmation one way or the other.

He said halberds MUST have a spear thrusting tip for safety purposes (as opposed to being allowed to use them but not having the right to thrust with them unless they have a spear tip. I'm sceptical but I'd rather know.

Does anyone know? I looked online at the combat rules and they didn't talk about weapon construction.

the rules for combat were revised last year, I wasn,t aware they made new rules

but Manu says that there is a rule that if you want to trust with the tip of your halebard it must have a tip! So kelly is probably right, but it's not a new rule from this year.

As i said, I'm aware that if you want to thrust you need a tip. That went into effect on mount royal by the end of last year

What Kelly is saying is you need a tip period. Personally I think he misunderstood but better to be sure before someone shows up at bico without one.

Thanks Catherine. I looked at the combat rules on the bico site but they didn't say much about construction of weapons... I'm not sure where I ought to look for that now.

En réponse à Cynan et tous les autres qui se poseraient la même question, moi-même j'étais plus sure...

On ne peut pas homologuer une hallebarde, arme d’hast, naginata seulement pour faire des estoc ou seulement pour trancher, les 2 attaques sont obligatoires pour l’arme lors de l’homologation.

-Pointe rembourré avec finition en mousse pour estoc sécuritaire
on parle ici de mousse ouverte comme sur les lances

page 14 du livre d'homologation et fabrication d'armes (http://bicolline.org/pdf/Standard%20Armes%20Bico%20mai2011.pdf)

So Kelly is right, the tip needs to be done with foam for piking or it's not legal, if you want to read on it go at the site I just posted on page 14, there are the rules for the hallebards. I just posted the two mentions in the rules that says that it has to be foamed.
