I have to approve a late 14th c. kit. Where could I find information about painted armour?
I appologize for not having pictures.
Thx for your feedback.

Painting was one of the first methods of helping to deter rust.
As for the rest, photos/pics would be most helpful.

Armour was indeed painted. Sometimes bright colours, sometimes not. See here for more info: http://www.myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t=18604 .

The forum Search function will also yield more threads.
