    Sheet Metal Armor prices?

    If someone produced decent quality sheet metal armor (very basic set - chest plates, shoulder plates and belly plate)what would you expect to pay for something like that?

    The reason I ask is that you often see pretty basic Sintra sets for $50-$100 USD and I wonder if sheet metal would be more expensive or pretty comparable.

    Thanks in advance.

    Good question, I made my armor entirely of sheet metal and a few board members asked me what would be my price. Thruthfully I didn't know what to say. Sheet metal is a little more pricey cause metal is not cheap.It also depends how thick you might want it.

    There is one, but not here. Post your question at the RPF and I'm sure someone will direct you to him.
