  1. That's freakin' amazing. You say prototype? I think not! Totally awesome.
  2. As far as I know I don't have anybody local... I'm jealous. And yeah, Tandy was way out when I first saw their prices. I think I may just end up going with buckleguy. Thanks for the advice.
  3. All right. Thank you very much. I found a pretty good deal on the heel bars on a site called BuckleGuy. Have you ever heard of it? Or is there a place you would recommend ordering from?
  4. Well, after some away time, I'm finally getting back to work on my armor. I'm getting to the point to where I need to start adding buckles. The armor I'm doing will be a sort of clamshell, you know, attached at one side of the torso and then tightened by buckles on the shoulders and the other side of the torso. My question is, what type of buckle do I need to use to achieve this and could anybody offer any tips on how exactly to attach them to the armor. I took a look at buckles and I'm thinking heel bar, but I want to make sure before I order any as they are relatively expensive. Thanks in advance.
  5. That's pretty awesome. For some reason i really like the scroll. :D
  6. Amazing as always. If I ever become 1/10 as good as you I will be happy. Great work.
  7. That does look very nice. I'm jealous.

    That's pretty awesome. Good job.
  9. Feel free to ask away if you have questions.


  10. That is very impressive. I love it.
  11. Thanks for your help! I've got a side on its way and I'm looking forward to this. Thanks for all of your help. I'll try to post some pictures of it when I'm done.
  12. Let me just say that I used this on a knife sheath that I made and the results look amazing. Thanks for this tutorial!

    These are pretty awesome. Good work.
  14. It's going to be for a tap LARP, so just a simple point based system with boffer combat. You are correct about me not necessarily needing that particular type of leather. In our rulebook, the armor I am wanting to make needs to be at least 3/16 of an inch, which as I understand it, is about a 12 oz weight, right? I suppose the 15/16 oz is more of a want than a need. I was also thinking about going with some Saddle Skirting instead of the armor leather. I will defer to your experience and knowledge though on what you think I need. Everybody in my LARP organization has told me this is a big first step and I should do something a bit smaller, and I am, but I'll be starting this within a week or so. Thank you very much for the forming tip as well. I'm getting all of my tools in tomorrow afternoon so I'll be able to put that to some practice before I move on to my armor.
