Dec 6, 2013 - *sigh* even in this day and age the idea that this armor was somehow
impossibly heavy is prevalent. IT'S NOT. armor is as light as possible
providing maximum mobility. it was donned from foot to helm to link the
pieces of the leg harness together in an overlapping manner, thus
preventing the strapping from being exposed to damage. _;;
you can do hand springs and cartwheels in armor, climb ropes and ladders
and most importantly FIGHT dynamically in full plate. it weighs less then
the pack of a modern soldier! and its spread over your entire body!
Nov 6, 2013 - $3000? I can easily afford that! Gimme gimme gimme! Ima wrestle bears with
that suit on lol
Nov 6, 2013 - Smithing increased 50-51
Oct 7, 2013 - I didn't properly argue your comment. The steel produce today is at a
higher quality than historical pieces. How they produce the Armour is
correct. the integrate of the steel is fine, but to effective the steel
must be heat treated

Oct 5, 2013 - I think you've misinterpreted what I said.
Oct 4, 2013 - Plate Armour only came around when smiths could produce sheets large enough
to hammer into shape. True quality of the Armour is in the heat treatment.
Proper quenching and tempering is the where Armour is made or broke. Theory
and practice are different concepts.
Oct 4, 2013 - They don't use stainless steel, it wouldn't have the right properties for
Armour. Armour's wouldn't hammer out the sheet out of a bar. That would
take to mush time and way to expensive for even kings to purchase Armour
without going bankrupt. The true quality of the Armour would be in the heat
treatment of the metal.

Jun 14, 2012 - No, they dont. Originally Armour that was left "bright", i.e. not blued,
blacked or such, was polished to the highest possible degree. Not only for
the Look of it to be perfect, but also as a Means to prevent Rust.

Apr 21, 2011 - Biggest drawback of a full suit of armor: when you're dented in battle you
need a canopener to get out...
Feb 8, 2012 - I want dedric armor
Feb 28, 2011 - And every single suit of armor fits the armorer exactly lol
Sep 19, 2011 - @agent866 Actually, in the high medieval period they had water powered
automatic hammers, but only very rarely I would imagine.
Jan 27, 2013 - 3,000 dollars for a suit of armor, SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
Nov 13, 2010 - is this american in the uk we have a male narator
May 8, 2013 - For the most part, they used soft iron/mild steel like the kind you can get
at the hardware store. They didn't use steel until around the mid 16th
century due to bullets. Almost all plate armor, mail and plate throughout
history, is shown paintings as blue or blue-purple. They did give them heat
treatments and maybe gave them very thin casehardening, but they did use
iron and mild steel. You could still give such coloration to iron or steel
easy enough, with a small fire and a bucket of water
Dec 25, 2010 - @LukeVerrierTV well altair wore chain mail at first, but anyways you would
have to be insanely fit.

Apr 7, 2012 - Knights realied on Full plate armor such as gothic maximillian armor 15
century. Worn by Gothic Knights of the Holy Roman Empire.
Jerry Hobbs Says:
Jul 13, 2011 - this should be titled "how they make armor for 33yrd virgins"....not how
they made it for combatants in the 16th-18th century.
Feb 29, 2012 - @thodkats I think they mean full plate of armours, before the 15th century
they even had breastplates
Oct 3, 2011 - @fastitslol kevlar is very weak ,not as strong as you've imagined,velar
agains an rifle is like chain maile agaist long bow,thats why the soldiers
are trained to take cover and understand strategic positions instead of
letting the enemies shoot their new armors..
Breuitas Scilicet Says:
Aug 19, 2011 - Kevlar's not all that heavy. The EOD suits you're talking about weighed
