    Hey man, people never respond to my post so im responding to yours. Im working on a Witch King Costume myself and I have gotten the helmet done and am now trying to start on the gauntlets myself. Most of what I have found is people not using pepakura but reference photos and making it from scratch using bronze sheets that they trace the patterns onto and cut them out. Let me know if you find a pep file though. Hope i was of some help

    I purchased this gauntlet template from David Guyton.

    GAUNTLET TEMPLATE AND INSTRUCTIONS

    There is an excellent video tutorial and the plans were only $5. Excellent plans, highly recommended, and would be easy to make as a Nazgul gauntlet.

    I don't think this sort of thing is really a good candidate for pep. I say just gather some reference and give it a try. The shapes are simple, there are just a lot of them. Pep templates are fine but nothing beats good old pencil and paper for me...

    You can still use a photocopier to enlarge the plans or shrink them down. I've done a lot of pep building and I don't think this would be a viable project to design in Pepakura - too damn fiddly! Plus the various clearances needed between the moving parts would make designing the mesh a real pain. $5 for the plans is gotta be a whole lot cheaper and easier...

    thank you an amazing build

    sadly there is no pep so i may start with my friend and templates but all the scaling and mods will take time. is there any template out there (which needs scaling and not much modding)?
