Turtleshell Cuirass

I thought my skill in armour of the ancients was pretty good, but what is a Turtleshell Cuirass?  And does anyone have any links to pictures?

Thanks,

Stephen.

probably something duck shamans with connections to some Great Turtle of the Creakstream River can make for the fighting drakes.

Included in Armies and Enemies of Dragon Pass, and illustrated.

On page 216 of RQ:G it's described as a chestpiece of turtleshell, wood, and bronze.

It's favoured by Humakti, especially amongst the Grazelanders who associate it with the cult of Hiia Swordsman.

While it has been depicted as just a large turtleshell over their body, it could also be something more like this. (Although using thongs or similar to connect the plates of bronze and turtleshell rather than chain.)

Thanks, a rather splendid looking piece.  

I was finding it difficult to visualise something that's just a list of ingredients...

Not to mention that it comes with side order of a rather splendid soup!

you could try to suit trollkin in it too, but they would eat the soup and the armor!

I suspect that it does, but probably split into panels.

Or maybe just a bigger shell, in back?

I like how you've made smaller ones into pauldron / spaulder pieces!

I might wonder if poleyn pieces (knees) might have been similarly constructed, at some times / in some places ... ?
