As I mentioned earlier I made my own shield. Now, I'm making my own gorget,
out of leather with steel
plating. Three months ago, I had no idea how to do any of this stuff, but
with reasonable application of
time and effort, I've made my own shield, strapped up my leg armor, built my
own gorget from scratch,
done field repairs on other people's armor, and am getting ready to learn
leather tooling. Knowing the
maintenance stuff is invaluable.
One thing to consider is a lamalar based armor. Ton of patterns and easy to
follow directions out there.
Dunno how cost effective they are though. But nothing is more satisfying
than wearing something you made onto the field.
