Armory is owned and operated by Dale Roberts,
known in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) as
Dale Wyn of Anglesey. Dale has been making steel armor
for the SCA and movies since 1991, and saw a need for
a light-weight, durable and inexpensive alternative.
Dale's suits have won several awards in the past,
including "Best in Show" at the 1998 CANvention,
and "Best Artizan" at the 1999 Ad Astra.
As well, Dale's work can be seen in the documentary "Prince
and the Grail", and the TV series "Tales from
the Neverending Story ". At Alchemy
Armory, we believe when you see our armor in
battle, you will agree that it is the best in its
Armory our goal is to create armor that people
will love to wear and fight in. With this goal in
mind, we've created light, durable armor that is easy
to maintain and wear, and is fun to fight in.
All armor is made from resilient 1/8" to 1/4" thick
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic with a
smooth finish. This exceeds SCA standards for
rigid material, and is approximately 1/2 to1/3rd the
weight of 16 ga steel. This reduction in weight
results in a great increase in speed, as well as
enabling the fighter to stay on the field far longer
due to reduced fatigue. All armor comes fully
strapped, ready to pad and fight.
