Hello everyone!
« on: 2016-09-22, 13:03:36 »
Hi everyone. My name is Cody and I am new to the forums here. I appreciate the add and look forward to interacting with everyone.

Over the past two years I have been building my kit. I have a butted half sleeve mail shirt that I have started to extend the sleeves on. I have a pair of mittens, and am working on making my own. I have a pair of flat ring riveted single leg chaps. A butted coif and two helmets. I am currently building a helmet. I have a teutonic surcoat, a teutonic cloak, and a templar surcoat. I have a sword and a small warhammer.

I just finished building a shield press and made my first kite shield. I plan on making quite a few more. I need to find material to cover it and leather for the straps. I am still on the lookout for a pair of leather shoes or boots. I don't fight in my armor, I just mainly have it for renaissance festivals and as a hobby. I built a stand for all of the armor and its hanging up in the corner.

I can attach pictures of everything if anyone wants to see anything.

Around here, we love pictures.

Cover for your shield, you can get painters dropcloth (it's canvas) in Home Depot. I've used it for a non-combat shield, and it worked well. I think it's the same thing Sir Nathan uses for his shields.
