Byzantine leg armor by Aranglinn Byzantine leg armor by Aranglinn
emmmm

that xD

this was inspired by the armor that the vikings of the varangian guard, in byzantium used, there are not finished yet (I ran out of metal before finishing them) but in the picture they look fine for me for submiting them xD.

when the byzantine vambraces are ready I'll take a photo of the dinished legs too

unfortunately I haven't found any historical sources asides of the books and sites in internet that are just bibliography... but at least all of them seems really fiable.... anyway I think that "byzantine armies" by Ian Heath & Angus Mcbride (from "men-at-arms" series) could be a more reliable source of information, I've not read it, since it's not avaliable in my country, but maybe there you could find the actual historical sources.

:P

wow, fancy looking! it does appear to be a bit impractical... what's your say on their function?
