hehe sorry about that. didt mean anything bad. it really is quite amazing though. i was just dumbstruck by how good it is. i just love armor, weapons, etc. and i need to get my own armor. have plenty of swords though! haha.

wow.. thats... whoa. but i can obviously see why. its very very good.

where did you learn to do all this stuff? I wanna learn how to do it all too.

Years of picking other peoples brains, found other guys to teach me the ropes here and there of armour, and I fought in it for a few years which will teach you why things need to be where they are. A great source is youtube these days. Search Eric Dube, he has great "speeded up" shots of working and will give you quite an idea of how to do it right. But to start out with you'll need a couple hammers, a dishing stump(soft or hardwood), and anvil(don't always need to be traditional, just a give heavy/flat metal surface), a drill, and a way to cut steel. And maybe a welder if you feel you need it. This website will get you started with some basic patters you can try out too: [link]

Thank you. Im trying to decide to become a armor/weapons maker or a game designer. its those two or a chef and these two are ones that are closer to my heart. its something i have a passion for but i can never find where to go for it or anything. idk which college would have it either. but anyways, thanks for the advice and help!

If you can do both, because armour doesn't pay nearly well enough for how much labors involved. Yea man and experimentation is always a good teacher too. Works for me.

hmm... thats not a bad idea. like be a game designer but be an armorer as a side-job? i like that idea.

haha. yeah. once i learn how to make all this stuff, im going to experiment. do you know of any places, like colleges or something, where they teach how to make armor and such?

Ya know there just isn't enough interest and application to justify armouring classes or schools. Blacksmithing classes do exist and are easy enough to find. Take as many of those as you can(because for armouring you just won't be able to find some of the tools you'll need, you have to make them, thus being handy at blacksmithing). But aside from that what you can do is learn old auto body work, welding,take metal art classes and start talking to "people" not schools, because you'll learn all sorts of things. Then its up to you to apply them to what you want. If you lived in the Sacramento CA area I'd offer to teach you some of the ropes.
