Gambeson, Leather Armor, Mailshirt, Plate-Armor, Silk-Armor, Brigandine ...
Nice Work! Would you mind if you let me use this for my book?
With exceptions: in the top row, the second and third are maybe a bit too similar to Diablo-II-Armours. Please do not use these if you publish your book. That could cause some trouble...
First row from left to right:
1. Linen Shirt, 2. Gambeson, 3. Leather Jerkin (Fantasy), 4. Chinese/Mongolian Silk-Armor, 5. Padded Leather Armor (Fantasy)
Second row fltr:
1. Leather Cuirass, 2. Breast Plate (conquistador era), 3. Studded Leather (Fantasy), 4. Leather Armour (Fantasy)
Bottom Row fltr:
1. Chain Mail Shirt, 2. Full Plate Armor (16th century the torso parts), 3. Full Plate Armor (late 15th century the torso parts), 4. Coat of Plates (14th century), 5. Brigandine (late 14th - 16th century)
Any chance of adding the name associated with each piece?
Also, have you ever considered drawing up armors from the 17th to 18th century? I know many armor types weren't used due to firearms, but I'd greatly appreciate a visual guide to what was available.
Actually I am thinking about a swashbuckler-extension, which would be 17th to 18th century and a steampunk theme that would be based on victorian period aesthetics. I wanted an open rulebook anyways. But that will take some time.
