    That's being overly harsh. She just took off her helm and aventail to let her hair down during for a breather; that doesn't immediately qualify it as unrealistic.

    As DM of Darkness points out: it's called an Aventail, it's attached to a helmet so you can actually turn your head in combat which is very important, and helmets are hot and uncomfortable if you're not expecting combat momentarily but are relatively easy to put on.

    This argument is frankly rather contrived, if something is 'directing' the sword into heart due sliding on sloped iron, there's nothing to worry about. If something's stabs hard enough to rupture plate, it will anyway.

    Inwards slopes obviously weren't likely practical in most applications, but people were making and wearing them anyway.

    Someone not liking boob plates from aesthetic whatever reason, it's perfectly understandable, but this 'realism' approach is not very good, since 95% of fantasy armors wouldn't be possible or wearable anyway.

    Probably on purpose. I'd take a reasonably sized bet that that is cosplay of a Warhammer Fantasy cleric, so the aesthetic would be very similar.

    I wouldn't say dislike of boobplate is just aesthetic: you're basically wearing a weapon pointed at your own sternum. A good punch would force the inwardly-curving armor right into the solar plexus. I've also heard that women wearing stuff like that for cosplay have been injured from falling forward.

    Plus it looks uncomfortable as hell.

    This is not exactly true; actual armor which actually straps in place wouldn't cause that problem. I guarantee a good punch would do nothing more than move the armored torso back a bit – and shatter as you wedge your fragile metacarpals between two metal slopes. People get hurt falling forward on outward slopes fairly often too – the point over the groin here hits the ground and you've got a bloke lying jackknifed, face to floor and booty in the air!



    Actual armor has padding underneath and is strapped down pretty efficiently. The force necessary to either punch through the armor without a pole axe and sniper precision, or to move the entire plate fast enough the stapling doesn't take the body with it, is sufficient that they'd be hurt regardless. You'd hit them like a truck.

    There's a reason armor was referred to as a harness; it's a system of leather body straps with metal on the outside, just as much as it's fitted plate with leather on the inside.

    At least some artists give the character a padded gambeson(sp?) or something to wear under it. Only time I can see the look working is when you've got some explanation for additional protection. Like how warcasters in the Iron Kingdoms wear armour that projects, basically, a force field around them; it absorbs the brunt of the impact so that less force is applied to the physical breatplate and I expect some warcasters have the practice to move and further reduce the force of the blow. The last bit would explain why Lt Allison Jakes has such a high Defence stat - fits with her backstory of duelist training as well; avoid taking the hit in the first place.

    More importunately in boob plate if I stab at your chest the sword will be guided in by the boob holders, not deflected like normal armor.

    I think it might be earlier on in this very thread; but hasn't it been pointed out that the SCA flat-out bans boob-cups. And not for any of the reasons given above but simply because boobs are soft flexible bits of flesh that don't deal well with being tightly encased in rigid metal while the body is performing strenuous physical activity.

    This is irrelevant and untrue. It doesn't matter if the sword is deflected inward. It's not piercing the plate whatsoever without enough force to pierce non-boob plate as well.

    SCA also bans swinging at the shins despite greaves being required and allowing hits to the head. The rules for losing your legs are stupid. And rules for combat archers feel like one guy dashed them off in twenty minutes.
