Full Armor Outfit

Full Armor Outfit

This is my current full armor outfit. The chainmal is made of punched and riveted rings. On top of it, I’m wearing a leather armor, which I made some years ago. It really needs an update. The helmet is a reconstruction of a vendel period helmet, loosely based on the Vendel 12 helmet. The sword is again my Hanwei Godfred.
