War of the Roses Armor 5 by Andaltno War of the Roses Armor 5 by Andaltno
This is a replica of an original 15th century War of the Roses harness and a 15th century pollax. The armor style is German Gothic. This armor is made from wax castings off of original pieces, utilizing original armor smithing techniques. The only differences are that the steel in this armor is stainless as oppose to mild and it is custom fit to the owner.

From top to bottom we have the Sallet (top of head), Bevor (chin), Spalders (shoulders), Besigeus (flower shaped armpit protection), Cuirrass (breasplate and backplate), Brassards (arms), Gauntlets (hands), Tassets (plates on the upper hip, near his hands), Cuisses (thighs), Poleyns (knees), Greaves (calves), and Sabatons (feet).

This is free to use stock photography. I ask only that you link back to this deviation and leave me a comment with the art you've created :)

Model: Thane Arnold

Photography is taken by me, armor and weapons showcased courtesy of the A Knight To Remember program. Check out the website here for more photos:

Thanks =) Depending on the armorer, a custom built and fitted harness could cost you upwards of 10,000 U.S. dollars for the entire set.

Yeah, it's still quite a purchase but not too bad. Anybody who really wants to dress up as a knight can do so if they want. Thanks for your interest =)

Here are two websites that might help you out. My boss, who owns the other armor harness that I will be putting photos of up later, got his armor made here:

And another great company that carries armor and weapon replicas is Arms and Armor; most of the weapons we have on display for our show come from here:

Hope this helps!
