Ye Small Print—Cautionary Note and Disclaimer
Combat re-enactment in any form carries an element of risk(hey they used to do this for real!) Even making armour can be hazardous, if you drop a hammer on your foot, cut yourself on a sharp piece of metal or do something even more disastrous! It must be pointed out, therefore, that if you partake in silly hobbies such as these you do so at your own risk! The advice and information in this booklet is given in good faith (most having been tried out bythe author) however as I have no control over what you do, or how you do it, I can accept no liability for injury suffered by yourself or others while making or using armour.

Ye Nice Note
Having said all that I’ll just add that I’ve been playing for ages and am still in one piece and having fun. Cheers, Paul

To start with where do you get all the equipment you need, especially all that nice shiny armour? Well here areyour options: 1. Borrow it (a good way to start if spare stuff is available) 2. Buy it new (can be expensive) 3. Buy it second hand (cheaper but will it fit or be worn out already?) 4. Make it yourself. 5. Any combination of the above! This booklet is a primer for those who want to try the fourth option; it sets out to show you how to make simple, but practical, armour. Beware though, armour...
