Scalemail and Related Armours
Plates linked together with rings, or sewn onto a leather or canvas backing.
It takes around 120 of our 2”x3” plates, linked together with 8mm rings to make an 'Average Size' vest. 200 of our D-Scales sewn onto backing will cover an 'Average' chest.
Plates linked together with cord or leather thronging. A Breast covering uses around 60 Lamellae, a vest 300.
Plates sewn onto the back of or between layers of cloth or leather. As plate sizes vary from garment to garment, we do not stock any specific size, but can make up plates to your specification.
Coat of Plates
Plates of different shapes and sizes riveted to the back of strong leather or cloth to give good protection and mobility without excessive weight.
You tell us what you require and we will design it, price it and make it up if required. Pictures ,crests, etc can be built into chainmail and ringmail armour. Meshes can be shaped to fit and decoration can be added. In our time, we have had many odd requests, a few of which are in the accompanying pictures. We are keen to be tested, just ask there is no charge for a consultation.
