I told Sir Matthew these are what he needs for his pikeman kit. I've grossly overspent my 2013 "toys" budget, and quite literally am eating ramen as I type this to make up for it.

These would look *great* with a classic "black and white" harness!

Oh the agony of not having the cash. They look very nice, though.

Very pretty.

James, I LOLed when I read your line about literally eating Ramn noodles.  Hard truths :)

The Ramen is no joke. Stacked two deep. :)



Oh and hello there gauntlets! ;) Partially in progress. Much as I did not want to, I took the blackening off (one done so far) - I already had part of a 16th century kit and all "bare" steel, so I want these to match. Just need Allan to make finish one of my gorgets into munions, and to get a helmet; I already had the peascod cuirass and 16th century cuisses.

The fingers are too long, so I will probably take one lame off of each before attaching gloves. No big deal. Apparently I have really small fingers. :o

Very good quality work and the price was very fair.

I need you to add some variety to your ramen setup, Sir James.  There are so many more choices nowadays!  lol

Yes, he could even be eating it out of the helmet.
Though I think he may be opposed to it.
