We arrive finally at making the Armor shaders under the Blender Internal engine; we have four materials, here: the two UDIM plate shaders, the rivets shaders and the leather material for the tiers.
Enable the 6th and the 13th scene layers and select the Armor object; if your computer is powerful enough, use the Rendered preview while you are working.
