Finished Linothorax
#1
I figured I would start another thread for my finished linothorax. I also thought some of you might also add you own pics of your finished armor so we had pics of various linothorax in one nice neat thread. Well, here is the sumation of several hundred hours of work.

It is both glued and hand sewn.

In my haste to get pictures I failed to rotate it on my body to the right position. It looks a little off center to the back, but it fits right once I adjust it.

It looks fantastic. How many layers of leashes did you used?

Thanks. The helmet is new Gioi. I am going to line it and make a high alternating white/black crest with a braided tail. I'll put pics in the impression thread once it is done. That is seriously my last project for a LONGGGG TIME. :lol:



No..........Seriously it is!

OK,Chris,what to say! Laudes from me wholeheartedly. Damn,how much greater bronze looks to brass! It is excellent. Don't forget to port pics with your new shield,too!
You are very lucky,your helmet came in one of the best qualities I've seen. In good shape and it fits nice it seems. Lightly painted and with high crest will look very nice!

Fantastic work, Chris Confusedhock: !! Is the chalcidian helmet made by Manning Imperial? It looks too good to be made by Deepeeka...

No. It is a Deepeeka Chalcidian. I will put more pics up of it once I get it lined and a crest on it. Should take a week or two.
