GURPS Armor: Ballistic Face Mask
This is AWESOME!

Any idea when you'll be expanding on it?

The article is feature-complete as far as I see it, it's a mask and it has stats and price, buy and wear it in your game if GM permits!

If you have any ideas how I can expand upon it, please do tell.

I just want to mention that these according to OBL barely pass when shot with a .44 round and that even a 7.5 inch AR15 with 55 grain ammo will readily pass through them.

Also these are certified under abbreviated NIJ rules as there are no proper NIJ standard for face masks.

In real life getting shot in one of these would probably induce BFD enough to crack the orbital bones or even your skull. still better then taking it in the face though !

Maybe, I didn't test it, I used the data in this video as well as commercial claims of it being NIJ IIIA equivalent. 55 grain FMJ 5.56 is certainly not something it's rated against. Mask failures, backface deformations, are all embedded in the varied GURPS dice. For example, 7.5" AR-15 would deal 3d+2 damage. That's 5(min)-12.5(avg)-20(max). So if you or enemies roll good, they can bust through the mask.

Here's the video.

2 years in development, Cinematic Medicine Draft 3 is here. Edits are small, but they are there. I hope for feedback.
