Lamellar armour is a kind of personal body armour consisting of small plates (lames) which are laced together in parallel rows. Lamellar armour evolved from scale armour, from which it differs by not needing a backing for the scales. Lamellar is pictured in many historical sources on Byzantine warriors, especially heavy cavalry. It is thought that it was worn to create a more deflective surface to the rider's armour, thus allowing blades to skim over, rather than strike and pierce.

Each plate is approx 18 grams

8.5 cm long x 3.5cm wide x 1mm thick
Hole diameter: 4.5mm

Tips on estimating requirements based on size.
You need to establish columns and rows needed, taking note that shoulders require fewer columns than the torso.
1. Estimating number of rows, measure the height in centimetres and divide by 6. (eg. 30cm / 6 = 5 rows).
2. Estimating number of columns, measure width or circumference in centimetres and divide by 2.2. (eg. 88cm / 2.2 = 40 columns).
