Your work is just amazing. Does your armor generally count as 1 point per area (before workmanship bonuses)?

Thank you much for praise,
At this game it is 1 step below max per location, or used to be, I believe. Scale-mail gives max. I have not played in some time. Other Larps/Dragonhir, it is one step below plate, in most cases Giving equality to Ring/chain.

In full contact other groups, such as SCA, personal use it. Except where hard point are actually required such as head, sternum, elbow, knees, throat.
Apologies for the delay in response, I do not get on these boards as much as I'd like to anymore.

I made my own (and some for others) years ago and I would heavily advocate for just buying it already made.

I realize that is unhelpful for your stated goal, so, here's some other thoughts.

If you feel you have to make it, buy the rings already wound and cut.

Theringlord.com is your best resource for rings and they also have a ton of good info about what to buy and the differences between materials and different pieces of paraphernalia and tools, etc.

Galvanized steel rings are probably your best bet for a mix of cheap and durable.

For the same size ring, and a lower cost (both per pound and over all for the suit), but with a significant drop in the durability, aluminum is an option.

If you don't mind the extra cost and want to save on weight, but not give up on durability, titanium is the way to go, and looks amazing.

So, there's my two cents.

If you do make it, post pictures!

Even if you want mild steel, hit up ebay. A few Indian companies have started doing flat ring and round ring riveted steel suits in the sub-$200 range that aren't bad. When you figure the time investment to make one on your own, that's a downright steal.

Making a chainmail piece is tideous, but a youtube video is far better at explaining than I ever could in a message. I honestly only do about 5% chainmail, I work with plate and scale, and then mostly leather. As for supplies, The ring lord .com as Tieren above said, is a great place to get it, probably have some tutorial videos.

Back to my OP, my custom work commission cue is now closed and filled until April 18. I still have plenty of bracers, belts, and my breastplate styles in made. So hit me up if interested.
