Armour from the Armouries

here we have Samurai and Medieval armour. I wanted the metal armour images because I thought that the engraving would work well as a texture. I ended up having a mess around with them on photoshop but nothing really came of it. This wont stop me having another go in the future.
Ive always found Samurai outfits incredibly interesting. The masks must really terrify an opponent, they aslo seem so natural, but I dont know how well they would hold up against a fully suited knight.
lIke the other images taken at the Royal Armouries and the museum the quality of the shots are hindered due to the subjects being behind glass, but once cut up or altered can still be quite useful.
