Being the King of Westeros comes with perks and one of them is having your own Kingsguard. The elite group of knights will keep you safe from assassins, family members, you name it. RPF user teranmx created this armor set based on the Kingsguard armor seen in Game of Thrones. It looks beautiful and fit for knights serving the throne. The maker explained the build process at the RPF:
I carved all of the patterns with my dremel. I used pvc glue to fuse it together. I used Bondo to fill gaps. I did add a few rivets for attaching tough areas and for comparison to other rivet marks. I do know from some more recent photos there are more details on the chest that I missed. I would like to fix that on the next one I make. On the shoulder pauldrons I took a bowl and vacuum formed the pvc over it, cut it mid way and then attached the two pieces together with the other part of the bowl pointing outward. I fused it with pvc glue, extra support with rivets, to fill big gaps i used window screen as a fiber for the bondo to hold onto extra along with the pvc. It allowed me to get those corners sharp since there was like a 1 inch gap in between the top and bottom. If I could’ve afforded it I would gone the next step further and made molds of all of this and cast them in another material so they would be solid.
