Some of you asked me exactly what I was talking about at practice when I said I was getting armor done by Taco. Well here it is..




He will be doing two layers of soft leather, and I think he said he is going to make it where it laces up the back. Minus the chainmail unless I find someone who knows how and I get the money for it. I'm going with leather for now and the carvings.

I was going to post it on the ATD forums to show it to that one guy they brought out. He'd asked me about it...but for the life of me I don't know his name and I don't want to just go posting willy nilly over there.

Thats alot of dangling chain....

The sculpt of the armor is very elven. Nice clean lines...


I would very much like to see this made. Smile


Have you looked at elven chain?



It would be made of Titanium. Razz

Well I'm an elf. lol I also am not doing the dangling chain....Though that titanium idea would make me invincible....I wonder if it would keep me from being crippled if Barrikaide fell on me.

Ha ha. Well I'm still talking to Taco. But hopefully I can get it done soon.

if its soft leather dagorhir requires metal studs every half inch to count as armor. or metal rings would work too.

Doesn't two layers make it thick enough to count?

Taco is. =P It's mine. Suck on that. You can touch it when you get here though. I'm intending to have it done by the time you're here anyway. I got a new job today.

when you put two 8oz layers of leather together they become the right thickness to pass as armour.

Taco what do you charge for armor? I might have you do my shoulder pads and chest armor if I ever find a design.

I kind of like: but the site said it runs for like $260.


Maybe that, with shoulders like the one up top.



http://www.medievalcollectibles.com/c-115-leather-harnesses.aspx Thats the site I found.



I'll ask Alacian for ideas, she is good like that.
