Well then

There are 3 reasons why you might be here.

You want to learn how to make chainmaille. In this case you should start with my basics guide. Or you saw one of my crossbow guides perhaps? Or you simply like awesome stuff of which I am a capable provider even if I say so myself. In this case, the popular posts section is a good start. This blog(and me) is very much active and I'd gladly help you out if you have question and so on. You can find me at email: bogy_shashav@abv.bg or skype: bogy_shashav

Have fun and enjoy your stay.

Lego armour version 3 finished with video tutorial

Phew! Its done. I finally sat on my behind and am now done with the lego DIY armour version 3. Gave me a headache but it was worth it.

USED MATERIAL: custom made links - 0.3mm rhodium plated copper wire, winded on 1.2mm dowel.

Since I do believe I've reached the maximum development possible for this project, I made a video tutorial on it. Its not the best, and well my camera isn't the best too, but it will do. Any chainmaille enthusiast will be able to catch up and get on with it in no time. For the rest - hold your horses, this is not for newbies. Do some easier stuff and then try to ruin your eyesight with this.

Here's the front in better detail.

 And the back.

Pimp my horse! 

 Here's the armor removal process. Its like putting on and removing a full sized chainmail hauberk, except the part where you remove the head first.  It has to be done very slowly and carefully. A stronger pull and you will open some of the links, and repairs on something THIS small can make you go nuts. (Unless you already are, like me)
 Armour removal process step 2
 And its off.

Here it is again compared with the lego armour version 1.

Great tutorial, thanks man!

Why wouldn't you just remove the arms when taking off the armor?

Thanks so much for posting this! I was just about to make some of these for my little brothers as gifts, and was curious to see if it had been tried. I was worried about the arms being too close to the body, but you've done a great job of compensating for that!

Did you know you can shorten your urls with AdFly and make cash for every click on your shortened links.
