I have a wonderful memory from since before and after my first piece of armor bought from Allan Senefelder at The Mercenary's Tailor Armoury. I, just as many others will atribute to Allan, the A+++ customer service and excellent products that he and his company produces. I have been collecting all pictures that I could find with people wearing Allan's Armour. Also in this tribute will be pics showing the progress of my kit from the first to most recent pic of purchases from The Mercenary's Tailor Armoury.

I know that some of these pictures can be seen in other threads, though for quick refernce I have put them all here. Thank you Allan for your help and kind service.

Also I would like to open the thread to anyone with more pictures of The Mercenary's Tailor Armour and/or questions and answers that my be had. I have been able to make my Arming jacket with attached voiders by way of looking at these pics and being ready for the most recent purchase of the Harness and arms. Perhaps these pictures will serve as an assistance to others with similar interests.

Edit: Original thread name was "A Tribute to Allan Senefelder" sounded like something bad happened. So I changed that.

Hope you enjoy and without further adue; Here are the pictures.

Nice idea to group all of these together but you almost gave me a heart attack thinking that something might have happened to Allan. Eek! You know tributes often happen after someone died or something. Razz Laughing Out Loud

But I'm also a fan of Allan and his " above and beyond " customer service. Cool

I notice that the title of the Topic has been changed to something less likely to cause worries about Allan's demise and still meet the objective of showing off his work and the kits people have assembled using his armour as the only or primary elements.

I assume that if someone has pics of Allan's armour mixed in with other people's work it would still be on topic to post as long as Mercenary Taylor's armour is well represented. Wink Big Grin

So, to borrow from my favourite Twain-ism; rumours of his death are greatly exaggerated.

I just spoke to him a week ago, so unless something very sudden happened, I assure you he's fine! Happy

Doesn't a death create publicity and encourage revenue, even if the one at topic is not dead?

In any case I am sorry about that origanl thread name, that was not my intent, just to give a Living Tribute to Allan. Not to insenuate that anything happened to him.

And you fixed the title. Big Grin Cool I just brought it up because I imagined that others would get the same " scary " idea. Wink

Lets get back to the Topic of Allan's armour although we did have fun teasing you a bit, it was all in good fun and " relief " that everything is fine.

Unless something very sudden happened to Allen, I think he's okay. Razz I talked to him just a few days ago regarding my newest purchase from him, which should be arriving today! Laughing Out Loud Laughing Out Loud Laughing Out Loud

I'll definitely have some pictures to add to this post once I get my package.

Thanks to Allen, his wonderful craftsmanship, and his exemplary customer service!

not very much armour (THAT will have to change..... Laughing Out Loud ) but its all Allan's VERY good craftsmanship. and as far as customer service goes, the guys amazing. because of my terribly small budget, I keep asking questions about stuff I don't wind up ordering, and I'm pretty sure most guys would be pretty infuriated by now Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin
