High Elf arm...ehm...armour by Valimaa High Elf arm...ehm...armour by Valimaa
a shot of my arm...ehm...yeah -.-

I completed the rerebrace, couter, vambrace...though my gauntlets still need to have the "stones" painted
-Everything is hardened leather Oo

-Underneath the armour im wearing a blue gambeson sleeve padded with multible layers of wool

-I'm quite happy with the arm...since it dosnt inhibit my movement and its got very good coverage...eventhough I sometimes get an itch under some of the armour where i cant reach...really annoying XD

I agree : beautiful !
But I have a question, do leather was the better material for such a final look ? It seems to be a piece of an iron plate, no?

thanks ^^

well...I think that the leather gives the armour a different feel/look...where metal is very thin and "realistic" the leather adds a certain anime/cartoonish thickness...and for this kind of armour I actually prefer that...it brings it closer to the original drawings and models made of warhammer high elfs
...also...if I had to hammer all this out in metal...I would have to do it at home...and I think after about a week the neighbours...would be plotting a nasty plan for my early demise XD

And another quick question.. those "layered" gold plates on the back side of the armor.. those are just tooled in to look like multiple layers right? or are there actual layers of leather there? I'm a leather noob :( but I'm starting to get into it, and I'm taking all the notes from the best leather crafters I can!
