It's different if you claim the brass-bronze stuff in a blog but if you don't have some solid info to back you up, you probably shouldn't add claims in a page IMO. SpiralSpectre 12:45, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

I'll post again - "However in the show most pieces of armor claimed to be bronze, appear to look more like brass. This is a common practice in modern reproductions of bronze armor, brass being much cheaper than bronze" is pretty unclear to me. When saying "appear to look" in an accusation, it should be clearly said whether it has been observed from up close or on a screen. The later makes the claim weak. Relating modern reproduction method to the show's armor without anything concrete, that's a personal suspicion at best.

Secondly the bronze cuirass was very successful in the first two seasons, which has been mentioned in the same article. Brass wouldn't survive steel age weapons so effectively. To be precise it blocked off one of the finest steel in history on two occasions and a helmet penetrating axe on another occasion. This makes the article contradict itself.

Third if both the muscalata and helmet was made of brass then the armor would've had a higher failure rate then the helmet. When both the armor and helmet is made of the same material, the helmet is almost always better made than the body armor for obvious reason.

Lines like that is nice in personal blogs but a page is about information and probably shouldn't contain something that's almost entirely someone's personal opinion. SpiralSpectre 13:36, January 11, 2012 (UTC)

For one we don't actully know how well the armor faired in the first two season, there was no failure rate numbers, we just know who won. Even brass would stop a slicing motion farily well, you can't just cut through metel. I don't remeber there ever being a test of bronze vs an axe. We do know they use modern reprduction quaility at least some times, the butted mail armor as mention before.

Even on the failure rates not being the same, we don't even know what they mean failure rate to mean, so the mean the rate at which it break or is penatrated or do they mean it fails when it fails to stop injury or death

You can tell the differeance between Brass and Bronze by looking at it, they look extremly differnt
