Aah there are many people who make armour, e.g: http://www.whiterosearmoury.com http://www.plessisarmouries.co.uk http://www.aplaisance.co.uk http://www.steel-mastery.com etc etc all the makers have different strengths and weaknesses, some cheaper armour is made in India too (look on ebay!).

Beautiful armour! Stunning!!

However I am slightly concerned about the horse.. it looks a bit like a cow with its white and brown patches.. poor beast!

Gambeson and Padded Jack

Hi guys,
Could anyone explain to me the difference between a padded Jack and a Gambeson? Is it purely to do with the length of the garment? I am confused!
Thanks,
Damian

No I actually prefer simple gauntlets.. I don't like anything too fancy.. I have munitions grade armour .. I was just trying to find a good deal and I have tried various gauntlets to find that many do not even grip properly and are too stiff..

Get Dressed for Battle hourglass gauntlets

Hi there,
Just wondering whether anyone has any experience of the GDFB gauntlets as I am thinking of getting some. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
