Black And Silver Armor - Final by Azmal Black And Silver Armor - Final by Azmal
And now I present you with the end result of the Black and Silver armor. Finished the helmet and gauntlets recently to complete the set.


Completely functional and highly movable with articulating elbows and flexible knee. Breastplate is actually a type of Lorica variant with floating sections so it can bend, flex, and twist with ease. Collar has no historic value I'm aware of but it looks cool and the client wanted one so there it is.

List-O-Stuff -
We've got the breastplate with wet molded 'muscled' chest.
Articulated cuirass. (Lorica style)
Lots of carving and embossing.
Incredibly solid design with a lot of overlapped plates and hardening.
Helmet with detachable face plate
High Collar
Cool new Pauldron design
Full fingered and articulating gauntlets
Greaves with high knee
Unusual sabbaton design
Scale 'Super Skirt' with hundreds of 'floating' scales where each of which are hand molded and, dyed, painted, studded, and assembled. Incredibly solid and a bit heavy but doesn't restrict movement at all.
It's got full articulated arms with the elbow cop, vambrace, and rerebrace. Similar to metal plate designs.
This is the first set of armor where I've tooled the Prince Armory logo into it. Shows up nicely in this pic.

Check for the 360 turn around view in my gallery soon.

Also check out the full version (download) to see the full size with all the details.

It seems to scream "Imperial Scout" to me, this does..... doesn't have the feel of a guard, or someone else who wouldn't be mobile, but it looks like something someone who goes far afield might use; light, mobile, and allowing for greater perception. Also, it definitely screams of large amounts of resources poured into the survival of whoever is wearing this..... Just my two cents. Brilliant work, as usual

It looks real because it is real! I have taken full blown hits to the chest and although I went back over a table it didnt hurt at all! And that was just with his first set of armor he made!

Helm reminds me of a "frogmouth" From somewhere I've seen...
I think the way it FEELS like plate is a nod to the craftsmanship. Hope to run into you on the AA sometime!

Ill start the bidding at $8000 ^_^

JK Its Andrew man, you know I dont have money. But if I did, I would gladly pay that much for a suit of this quality.

To everyone reading this, I have known this man personally for years and he gets shit done. He also doesnt finish until it looks damn good.

Unless his highschool buddy asks him to skip class XD

You know this angle of the helmet with everything together looks pretty darn good. It does make more sence and ties in with seeing it all together. Very nice.
