Note the bone armour scales on page 48 and the "Hittite" shield pattern we are familiar with on page 50.

Hmmmm... Would be pretty cheap to make bone scale armour:

On my list. I'll make it after I die and am resurrected in the afterlife! :P

Probably cheaper to buy some big bones from a pet supply place, or from Moscow Hide and Fur, and slice them up yourself. OUTside. With a mask.

You know you want to.

That is a very good idea, and I DO want to make some bone-scale armour, but I also want to finish Something! ANYTHING! :unsure:

Hey, just be glad you're still only doing ONE era! Even my Greek stuff is scattered over 4 or 5 impressions...

That's certainly true! I'm enjoying very much your archaic and classical items. And Thracian, Macedonian, Hellenistic.... :blink:
