Dilemma!

Postby Craig S » Sat Mar 26, 2011 9:56 pm

I've been thinking of buying some armour, and now have enough saved for either the Elven from Norton Armouries or pretty much any set from White Rose Apparel. Quite like the Fenrir set... I can't decide!

:?

Maybe the White Rose Apparel stuff as it looks really nice to me. Also whilst it isn't quite as slick as the Norton stuff, I imagine it is a bit rarer. Looks like you get a lot for your money too.

Yeah: I think it's more generic too, so can be worn more often without standing out! Only wish I had the time and talent to make my own like you did! :)

White rose is metal, therefore heavy.
Norton is plastic therefore light.

No contest for me, go Norton.

I thought the white rose stuff was leather?

Yeah, was looking at the leather stuff from White Rose. Their metal greaves and such do look good though.

The question I need to ask is when would you like it for? Norton has a waiting list that can be up to two years as he does work for Hollywood (most recently Robin Hood) which knocjks his order list about a bit so I'd check before you order.

H'mmm... Well, two years is out, but I don't have a deadline as such. The next event maybe.

I'f you spot something that you want from one of the traders who does mainline LT/Maelstrom events then I can pick it up for you, thus saving on P & P. Darkblade have just announced some new upper body armour in leather that looks good and that I'd be tempted with if I had the money.
