Black & white (lamellar) Samurai-Sode
« on: May 05, 2017, 02:01:28 »
The sode is the samurai's pauldron (plate of armor meant to protect the shoulder) made up from plates of steel
to shield the wearer from arrows and blade strikes on the shoulder area.

....now that NFL is entering China...perhaps Geobra might produce another batch of Chinese Ice Hockey teams to promote Playmobil there and I might not need to create these 'lamellar' sode anymore  ;D

I can imagine Asian hockey team uniforms resembling samurai and Chinese armored warriors (is there a special name for them?).

Or they might resemble these guys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBOxGFA7Oig
