A Practical Introduction to Armor Making
by Paul Blackwell
The Arador Armor Library would like to thank the fine folks at Brighthelm and of course Mr. Paul Blackwell for their kind permission to publish Basic Armouring here at Arador. While generally geared towards the construction of sport combat armour, it prevails as an invaluable resource for the absolute beginner. The terminology is British (example, a “mop” instead of “buffing wheel”) so keep this in mind as you read and ask at the Forum if you require clarification.
