Epic Gauntlet Build is Epic, Shiny. - This 8-Bit Life

Epic Gauntlet Build is Epic, Shiny.

Writer David Guyton has done some serious promotional work for his new book. Not only is he making a trailer for the book but, he is also making props! And badass ones at that! What you see above is a Gauntlet that David fashioned from brass sheeting, copper rods, and a leather glove.

Even better, he has made a video build log that takes you step-by-step through his process and he’s even got the template up for about $5 dollars on his site. Check out the video below.

    Nice. This looks like a fun project, though I’m not sure that I’m geeky enough to wear plate armor in public. I’d be far more comfortable in a room with a friendly dungeonmaster some and polygonal dice.

      I would love to play D&D again. Trying to work the wife into it via Magic: The Gathering.

      Everyone is geeky enough to wear some badass plate armor sir.
