Game of Thrones Valyrian Armour

This is my major project final piece for University, representing a Valyrian suit of armour to fit with the Game of Thrones universe, including a helmet, cuirass, and leather jerkin with scale rerebraces. It has been hammered out by hand from sheet steel, with brass details and embossing, tooled leatherwork and a horsehair crest. Both helmet and cuirass are fully lined, and all leatherwork for the armour and jerkin has been stitched by hand.

The Valyrian culture is supposedly inspired by Republic era Rome, so I have tried to carry this a little into the silhouette- the crest is very typical of ancient design, as are the hinged cheek guards, suggesting an era older than the current 'medieval' setting of the show. As house sigils are featured prominently within the costumes and armour, there are subtle dragon motifs included within the embossing and figurehead. The scale elements too were designed to be evocative of dragons. The tooled leaves around the head represent a laurel wreath, the Roman symbol of martial victory.

There has been a massive learning curve on this one, and I think the trickiest piece I have made so far- a good end to a fun three years!

This will be on display in London at New Blades in a couple of days, along with lots of other models, for anyone interested!

Amazing work. How much for a bracer? Would you consider trades?

Why Thank you, glad you like my stuff :) Unfortunately between University work and a few personal projects I don't think I have any time at the moment for commissions, but I do have a few more archery related things lined up. Noticed you have some great looking bows in your gallery, would love to give that a go myself in the future
