Troy Armor - Groin Protection

    All warriors must have some type of groin protection, either cup or a panel hanging from a belt, called "Troy".
    This can be made from thick leather or metal plate.

    Here is a sample made from leather.Bridget Lucia made this out of pieces of leather approximately 5.5" wide by 4" high. These sections were riveted together and hung from leather loops from a belt.

    Save this graphic, size it up until the ruler is the correct size. Use the pattern to cut out your own leather or metal pieces.
