Steel hexagon plate lamellar armour WIP by Armourdillo Steel hexagon plate lamellar armour WIP by Armourdillo
my first [hand]made steel armour, based on the pattern of my leather armour plates. It turned out quite well.
Had to make the sides with square plates as hexes don't go well around corners, as I've discovered...

This armour is still under construction, I am still working on the shoulder- and thighpieces.

One of my grown-up friends made armor for a kid who was born with his heart outside of his ribs - he basically didn't have any bone over it after the doctors saved his life.
   My friend made lamellar armor for him so he could play sports and told me that lamellar has this cool effect where if you hit it on one side you feel it on the other or someplace else because of the way its made.
   Did you notice that in this?

   Its Cool work - reminds me of the Dark Knight.

I couldn't find any, so I decided to make them myself. Sorry!
Depending on how much you are willing to spend, you could get them custom made. I enquired at a local steel mill, they had two options:
laser cut (for a small batch) or stamped for serial production (higher initial cost)

The cost for making the stamping die would cost more than I was willing to spend (over 300 dollars).

That looks great.

I saw something along a similar lines using the idea of kikko plates/jack of plates sections some years ago and thought that looked cool too.

almost makes me want to make a set...... almost lol

Dude, this is AWESOME!
Wow, love the hex plates. It really makes it look futuristic yet ancient at the same time.
