Show here your Sarmatian warrior impression

hi, Moi

When I got the armor, there was quite a space between the shoulder lamellar and the scale upper arm pieces, one of two weak spots. (the other area is around the armpits) I was thinking, "What about a rain of arrows? Sure enough, that's where one will hit me-- right in the upper arm. Then I might not make it to retirement, my chunk of land, my vet's diploma, my young and fantastically beautiful new Roman wife. I'll be mostly dead, not just partially dead!

So, I had a couple of lower end-pieces from the arms of some segmentata. I sewed them into the armor to cover the weak spot. I'll probably remove them, and try to make a hinged extension in lamellar. It's basically a "what if" project, but that darn Tacitus started it! Those Roman historians. What a bunch. 8-)
