* Nidlap needs to get better-looking shoes if he's gonna be wearing that sick-ass armor.

Maybe make him some sabatons?

Finish Silvers Armor a week or so ago. Here he is at the park, some of the few pics I got of him wearing it. His shorts cover up the knees and he didn't have the suspenders tightened up enough on the kidney belt (his first time putting the set on, but you get the idea:

This is a rig I was comissioned for by an Amtgarder back east who was sick of having his weapons destroyed and being left weaponless. All the scabbards are modular/removable (the backpack is 1 unit) in case he wants to move them around or loan them out to friends.

actually, that's me wearing the gloves, I was in the proces of dying leather and just put on my tunice because I hate modeling gear in mundane clothes.

Right after these pics were taken i took off the tunic and went back to crafting.

So... he wasn't exaggerating? I wanted to try Amtgard this year, though to my relief they mostly ditch in FL. (Would have tried it sooner if not for verbal magic - still think being a Wizard is baller)

Nope. Though, honestly, I guess I could have tried to dodge more instead of blocking arrows and fireballs with my swords....


I greatly prefer ditching.

Not exaggerating at all. The only time I play a Battlegame in Amt with 1-2 weapons is when I'm playing a caster. Otherwise I have at least 3 weapons and sometimes as many as 5 (plus throwies and arrows, I never go on the field with less then 12 arrows if I'm arching).

When this comission contacted me and stated that he'd seen my rigs and wanted me to make my own "dream monk/assasin rig" I said "alright, first how many weapons do you own?... (he told me) ... Ok I'll make a scabbard for every one of them to be worn, oh and you should make yourself a polearm to start with... or a couple longswords..."

Kurik Tuck's Armor almost completed, just needs some adjustments and work on the pauldrons as they float oddly, I'm probably going to add more lames in them.

Something subtle that you should do for your strapping... Cut a belt hole through and tuck the ends of the straps behind the plate before you rivet. It looks cleaner that way.

Oh ****, I thought that was an Atlantean helmet, then Fitz confirmed it for me. I knew an Amtgard fighter bought the original prototype, nice to see it in use.

Are there cats having a threesome on that dude's shield?

I've used that technique before, it can work rather well. Though it can have bad consiquences if you have to re-position strapping as the wearer breaks in the set....and being that I've generally got very short periods of time to do fittings/adjustments ....

Yeah I love the helm, actually traded for it. Mathias is most likely going to buy it from me since it fits him perfectly as well on goes so well with his armor.

I kind of hate the shoulders.

How are they attached that they're up that high? Can he even move his arms?

that's part of the adjustments I have to do, the shoulder straps on the torso hardened in such a way that they are 2 inches higher and not resting on his shoulders, then the pauldrons flatened a bit more then needed making them float oddly like that. I need to re-wet them and let them settle.

It's one of the follys of drying on a form instead of the actual person it's being made for.

Almost completed comission for Laoric in Boise. Just gotta add another Lame to the pauldrons this week and this set will be done. He already has bracers and greaves and didn't want the set hardened.

No, not armor porn. This is stuff that Fitz has made. Kudos at failing second grade English.

Wish I coulda gotten a fully finished pic with his garb on as well but we literally finished sealing the skirt just as he left for Denver for the summer so the rest the armor was already packed.

Based on the Nightengale Armor from Skyrim:
