After just seeing e5sargemac’s amazing Edo-period samurai hankyu archer, and the question over the scale of the chainmail, it got me thinking about a Ninja figure I’m working on.
Inspired by PvtMacleod's ‘flabbergasting’ maille suit, I had a go at making some Japanese Hitoye-Gusari Mail (2/4 Grid). This tiny section took me well over a week to make (including learning from scratch) - probably the most irritating and patience-testing thing I have done in 1:6 scale (and that is saying something!). Maybe I was using the wrong technique?
Anyway, after all that work, I’m worried that my chainmail is overscaled!
I would really appreciate feedback on the size etc. of the chainmail. Be as frank and honest as you like!
This is what the maille should look like. (Image from artofchainmail.com)
Thanking you in advance!
