For over 20 years the Armchair Armoury has been supplying armour to re-enactors, live action role players, demonstration teams, theatres, nightclubs, specialised industrial curtains, films and bespoke parts to industry, architects and others.

We can construct and supply most small parts of metal armour, or the raw materials and instructions for its construction by you. We also tailor make armour, chain curtains, blankets and bespoke items. If you have a pattern or a design that you would like made up into a finished item, we can help you realise your wish.

Plates & Scales

We work closely with local engineers to create custom scales and plates for use in making Historical squamata, Coats of plates, and fantasy Scalemail in a range of different metals and finishes


All of the Steel rings are suitable for full contact re-enactment garments, or for items that need to be tough and durable. Brass and Phosphor-Bronze should be used for decoration only and not in large patches that will be exposed to combat or similar stress. Aluminium is only suitable for LARP, Stage/Film, Show armour, Children’s garments and other light weight uses. It should never be used in combat.

Pre-made Armour

We carry a small stock of armour suitable for battle re-enactment as well as some more fantasy inspired one off creations. If you can’t see what you want, please contact us as we can generally accommodate a custom order or locate reenactment armour for most historical periods,


Design Service

Need a pattern or house crest built into your chainmail? Not a problem! Drop us an email with your designs, and we can build you the section you need, or draught you a pattern to follow.
