Fem Legacy concept questions
« on: Sep 16, 2018, 10:43 PM »
Hi everyone ,
I'm planning to do my 2nd kit and I'm eyeing  the Legacy . I do have a few questions
1) Can I use a full cape instead of a back plate?

2 ) I wish to have a Kama but don't wish to have thigh plates.

3 ) My 1st Kit have fur, possible to use feathers to line my shoudlers?

Basically , This will be a Light armor.
As my country is very humid , I don't wish to wear too many pieces especially when I'm trooping outdoors .

1. Yes, absolutely.
2. Works just fine.
3. Very possible :)

Really, Legacy is a subset of modern, and the only real variance to the rules comes with the collar/chest/ab.  Regular modern plates are spaced.  Legacy plates touch or overlap.  Beyond that, it's mix and match.  Excited you're starting a second kit Red!

There ARE some cheatcodes.  You can use a fencing chest protector for the actual breast plate.

This is what one of our UM's did recently with sintra for her legacy plates.  We did the duct-tape templating thing and drew them on her.




hope this helps!

Happy to be of service!  Hope you can find the chest protectors, but if not, there are ways :)

I got a hollow mannequin once but the shape was kinda pointy .  Anyways, there's someone selling a pre-owned fencing plate  for cheap.
So I'm gonna get that. YAY !

Erm, I have these old gauntlets . Made from PVC sheets .  Can I reuse this ?
Perhaps repaint it ? Or re-do to make it look similar ?

I will most likely have to re-do the bottom ,but can I use this concept ?


Or another alternative I have is to use fur & cloth as leg and arm wraps? It is possible ? So they're soft parts rather then amor
Example :

Arm wraps


Not planning to use that much fur, but somehow, it's something like this
