So I'm putting together a suit of female metal armor for a friend of mine. I've had the thread up on the Mercs board for awhile, but figured I'd post some pics here also.
The top half of the armor has been pounded out. It's made out of 20 guage aluminum and 26 guage plate steel. It's light but strong, especially the plate steel pieces!
Everything has been hand hammered (We call it "dishing" in the armorsmith world), and that has taken a good amount of time. The build is based off a Vhonte Thervo style armor but will have it's own distinct look once it's finished. Those of you going to DCon will be able to see this armor in action.
