For Blood, Steel, and Honour. O-Yoroi, or Great Armour, appeared in the tenth century and became common in the twelfth, during the Genpi Wars which brought the call for armour in Nippon to a peak. Built from metal or leather scales laced into plates and laquered against weathering, odoshi, or Japanese lamellar, is one of the most ornate and complex forms of armour ever designed. Built in seperate pieces, this suit of yoroi can be used all together for a full yoroi suit, or the seperate parts can be used in smaller suits. State of the art material techniques allow for the appearance of a bumpy, laced surface even at an extreme angle (unlike traditional bumpmaps). What's more, designing your own lacing pattern is simple, as the multi-layered materials allow you to simply colour the pattern of your choice onto the lacings!
