Well, I don't intend to stop... But my output will be very low. I'm too busy to really crank the models out anymore.
I am working on a project I'd put down for a while. I could use some advice, though. It's going to be based on the Churburg #13 armour, and I inted to give it some fancy trim etc. If there are any historians around, maybe you could help me decide what the fauld/hips should look like. Here's where I'm at:
Remember it's only a wip- the uvs aren't even done yet, let alone the diffuse.
The Churburg #13 armour has only mail covering the hips. I thought it would be cool to do something more like this:
I have found a couple photos of repros like that, but I'm not sure how historically accurate it is. Anyway, if I go with that, should there be an arming garment, or some kind of coat, over the mail on the hips and/or upper body? As it is, the mail over the ass looks kinda boring, I think.
The other option I'm considering is this:
Which I believe is a fauld made of leather-covered plates (that's pretty much how the whole armour will look after it's textured, btw). The only thing I wonder about that, is how it looks in the back (ie how it does up, etc).
Any advice would be appreciated.
