therefore before I put time and effort into this I need a call on it
I am making a brigandine

is this legit to wear?
if it is then I am making matching vambraces and pauldrons
and think I can mass produce these for our armorless brethren.

It looks hella good Sulla. Double check it by the Manual of Arms....I believe that Kaimetsuo posted the newest rules.

Quote :
brigandine armor can only be counted as armor if 2/3 of the leather is covered by metal, or the studs/rings/plates are no more than 1/2” apart.

Legal

And so I say: FREAKING EPIC. Is the leather also at least 3/16 inch thick?

will be after I pad it and build it up
I started on it this evening and have the pattern and plates for it done,have to find some 120 studs for the front before I can start stitching it up,I am hoping the biker/leather store has them here in town otherwise I will get my girlfriend to grab some in the city meh I hope I can get my prototype done fairly quickly biding the studs total make time looks to be about 6 to 10 hours for quality purpose.

I am keeping document as I am making so I can put forth an armor making tutorial with price guide.
I am straying from the picture pattern above slightly to give it a more Romanesque feel.
in the mean time I still have to tweak my shield

finally done, 6 layers of leather,that's 3 in the front and 3 in the back


well within specs as you can see and not 1 ounce of foam in it although there is probably a pound of rivets and studs



next I will post my patterns
