2008 - Weapons/Armor

My new aluminum chainmail shirts from <A href="//thinkgeek.com/">ThinkGeek</A> arrived.The second one pictured here is still in it's brick-like wrapping. Theyalso come with a small bag of spare links, which is really nice! The links are 5/16" inner diameter, and I'm estimating it's 16g wire thickness. Theshirt is roughly the same overall size as the aluminum hauberk I've been trying tofinish up for all these years. :) This is the "Large" size, and it hangs to about 5-6" above my knee, and the sleeves just cover the elbows. My plan is to hack up at least one of them to make leggings/chausses. It'sa cost-effective way to get large rectangles to do projects like this. I'llhack up the second one if necessary. It looks like I can do it with one though.I need roughly a 24" x 30" sheet to make each leg, and the shirt is about 24x30for the torso, laid out on the floor for this picture.
