Re: More SCA armorers
- actually I spent over $1,000 on armor at the PA renaissance fair when I came back from Iraq, unfortunately, all of it is european armor, basically pauldrons, shin guards, bracers, a full coat of chainmail and coif, knee armor, all of it in silver. Maybe I can pass it off as persian I don't know. All I need is a helmet and a chestplate. I do have 2 metal persian shields from ebay.
Thank you all for the great info.
