    Medium!!! I am 6'1" and large is still a *tad* large (those dang corners stick into your arms...) Go with medium, then modify to fit width needs.

    yeah I'm 5'8" and the medium plates fit me perfectly, only had to trim off a little bit from the abdominal plate.

    Ok thanks!

    Last night i found the glue sticks but the only hot glue gun i could find was a really old one. and as soon as i put the glue stick in it instantly melted and poured all over my thumb! so sketchs are going to be delayed a bit, im even having a hard time typing right now

    Wayii! Kandosii ner vod! They're so much fun, they make sketching even more fun! I have to go get more for myself now... ran most of mine out with all these sketch variants that I'm working on for my future armor sets.

    another problem im afraid. My printer can only printed normal sized peices of paper and the medium templates are too wide. I have no idea what to do now. If i print them it just makes them smaller so they can be printed. Im wondering if i should just print the large and let them be shrunk? any ideas?

    What do you mean? I printed my large templates on standard 8.5x11" so medium should fit perfectly?

    is it printing larger than the paper size?
    I know the collar used 2 pages, but the chest plates were 1 each.
