I read a story about that guy’s armor if it’s the same dude. Basically he had s modest income and saved his money over several years. The armor cost 13k and required multiple fittings. They said when he moved it sounded like sisscors. No clanking at all. The guy is British and big into re-enacting.

Of the armor in this thread, that guy honestly looks the most realistic, if one assumes he looted the helmet.

nah, the guy is armored properly for a poor man. The helmet is the first thing you buy, and a sallet was widely available. The artist chose a polished one, when someone poor would likely have a black sallet. Anyway, the byrnie protects his vital organs, and he's got a gambeson on over it with a long sleeve aketon under. Next thing he would buy is a brigandine or breastplate, with arm/leg harnesses being the last addition

>> No.56515294

It is a reprodction of a chestpiece found in a church painting it is a brigandine with a breastplate over meant to look roman I think, the second picture I think is is toby capwell curator of arms and armour at the wallace collection or at least the same armour he wore at some joust

The bellows face visor is a typical aestetic in maximillan armour and is used on both sallers and close helmets, I beleve the that the helm in the picture is some fantasy bullshit that is not really any of the above

The breastplates are in most cases longer than historical ones or at least the fauld starts too far down, not alway but often.

She had a sallet at some point if I remember correctly It is mentioned that she was shot from a wall and was hit in the shoulder between the sallet and the backplate (from behind??? idk) While putting upp ladders, there is also some pretty relible mention of her being shot from the side in the calf, one of the few mentions of arrows piercing plate armour, since the back/sides of the greaves were generally some of the thinnest parts of the armour

it's a lot harder to make than chainmail, while not offering significant advantages. It requires much more maintenance and you need help to put it on.
