Lorica Squamata

I’ve finally completed my lorica squamata (Latin for scale armor)! I took inspiration from Ancient Roman armor that was scales sewn into a fabric backing (rather than into chain mail, for a more lightweight and flexible haubergeon). It took me 2 months, 15,000 scales, and weighs 10 pounds.
