I’m never quite sure if it’s wonderful or not when I see something crop up and I just start shouting ‘WANT’ at the computer monitor. That happened last week when I saw the gorgeous new pieces that Steve Lunn from White Rose had been working on in preparation for the kit fairs over the past couple of weeks.
These are etched steel and etched brass handmade vambraces and they are also ridiculously affordable. The etched steel are just £50 and the etched brass sets come in at £60.
I’m entirely sure Steve is going to be snowed under with orders for these pieces, and hopefully we’ll see him applying the etching technique to some larger and more ornate pieces of armour too! Could you imagine a whole breastplate etched this way? I think I could build an entire character concept and costume around that!
