name is Scott Martin and I founded Illusion Armoring in 1990 along with
my wife Lynette. Prior to that I worked extensively in the field
of antique restoration for eight years. In my armoring
career I have had the pleasure of working with and selling to museums,
curators, motion pictures, television, reenactors, collectors, and a
multitude of combat groups. I have had the privilege of
delivering armor to the U.S.A., Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland,
Germany, Sweden, Austria, Italy, Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand,
and many other countries. In the past years my colleagues and I have diligently studied armour
during visits to well over thirty museums in Europe and the US.
On many occasions I had private tours at the museums, and was able to
personally handle many of the pieces that were on display. During
this time I have accumulated an extensive photo collection totaling
well into the thousands of individual photos. I have filmed literally hours and hours of
video tape to document different views and angles of
armour. During my visits to Europe I have also acquired an
of armour books to
add to my library. I
use all of these resources to produce the best armour possible.
I am capable of making armour from a wide range of metals such as steel, stainless, aluminum, brass, and bronze. I can can work in a wide range of gauges from 20g. to 12g. I offer three types of finish a standard satin finish, a semi bright finish, and a mirror finish. When our schedule allows we do accept custom orders, but only pieces that are based on original styles. Please visit our in stock page to check on the items that are in stock ready for immediate delivery. Also notice that we offer two types of armour a "Period" grade and a "Munitions" grade. The Munitions grade armour is designed for the multitude of "combat re-enactors" and meets or exceeds the standards set by the Society for Creative Anachronism (S.C.A.) as well as other live steel groups. It does not mimic any specific style of armor made in medieval times.
The Period grade armor is for collectors and authentic re-enactment groups that require the much higher standard of armour. It is manufactured to look and work like armor designed in medieval times and for specific time periods. Period armor also meets the standards set by the S.C.A., but we will make it from thinner gauges when requested. Whatever you are looking for to fill your armoring needs, it is my hope that you will find it here at
