Tailoring Information for Scalemail

lates linked together or sewn onto a cloth or leather backing. Depending on the style chosen, these can make effective LRP lightweight armour.

It takes around 120 of our 2" x 3" rectangular plates linked together with the rings supplied in the sets, to make an average sized vest. 200 of our D-scales sewn onto backing leather will cover an average chest.

Scalemail (steel)

Steel plates can be made to order and costs will vary depending on quantity, size and thickness.
