Lady Weasel Poison-Fist

fist

Oooo…lookee what I have to play with! We have been loaned a suit of armor at work. It’s of modern manufacture, but it’s made for actual re-enactment use, so it’s properly articulated and very heavy.

You can see the six individual plates that make up each finger, for example, and underneath each is a leather loop that holds it in place. It’s the whole thing, head to toe. I’ve had on the helmet and gloves.

I’m itching to try out the whole kit, but it weighs around a hundred pounds, and I don’t think anyone would appreciate me going face first into the parquet with the fancy metal togs on.

Well,

maybe if Uncle B captured it on film for posterity.

Uh,
The door’s over here right?

Do you have any freedom of movement in it?
I’d put on the whole thing, then have to pee.

Do it – you can be “Iron Weasel”.

Then you must choose one of three destinies: Iron Man sidekick, Iron Maiden cover band, or Stainless Steel Rat cosplayer.

What time period does the suit of armor represent? The glove is quite handsome. Last night I just started reading a book about William Marshal (1147-1219), who is called England’s greatest knight.

Wearing it is one thing. Fighting in that armor and another thing.

You could try on the helmet or at least the glove, could you not?

I’ve been reading about Clare Sheriden. What a slut! Her husband is killed in the Battle of Loos. Now a rich widow, she schlep off to Russia and sculpted the heads of all the famous mass murderers. She litterally schlep, sculpt, and schupt all the big bolshies. All old, all ugly, and as already pointed out, all mass murderers. What’s with you rich brit artsy fartsy types???

A hundred pounds of metal? There is probably only a hundred pounds of Weasel. If you did put it on and tried to move, you’d know what life would be like on a planet with 2x the gravity of Earth! (That is to say, miserable.)

Does this armor perchance have a scabbard for a chainsaw sword of any type?

You don’t need a chainsaw when equipped with an Assault Weasel.

I agree with Gromulin! we want armored weasel photos!!!!!!!
If we upvote Gromulin high enough, will Lady Stoaty provide armored weasel photos?

Is it too snug for Uncle B to wear?

How about an armored chicken photo?

I am afraid Uncle Badger is a rather large badger and wouldn’t fit.

What Her Stoatliness didn’t explain is that this picture does actually depict Ye Holie Fyste of Weazele – she slid her paw in before I took the photo.

I would pay so much to see the full thing, lumbering around and if it ever happens I will make sure the evidence is posted here!
