These were a serious change of gears after working a lot of ancient projects recently - a pair of decorated, late 16th C German-style gauntlets. The functionality and attention to detail in armour of this period makes it pretty time-consuming, but satisfying to reproduce. They will be followed by a bridle gauntlet and a gorget with matching decoration.

I hope you like them - they were a pleasure to build!

Ah, they look great! The color contrast is spot on. Next step--full or 3/4 harness?

Like I said elsewhere, these turned out gorgeous. I am as curious as Kai is about what exactly they're supposed to match with? Even a half-harness with the same attention to detail would be bordering the most complicated and detailed reproduction armour I've come across... Cheers!

Thanks, guys.

I don't think there is going to be a harness to accompany these gauntlets, though if you were all to sign a petition, I would be happy to send it to my patron. ;-) I do have a matching gorget and bridle gauntlet in the works, and I will post them here as they are finished.
