I just finished these guys up earlier today:

As you may have noticed, they're the same base glove as these guys (http://th05.deviantart.net/fs50/300W/i/2009/322/4/a/Gloves___The_Morningstars_by_MetalArtisan.jpg) that I posted a while back. I got a cheap bulk order of them, and I've been doing a series of badass gloves in the same heavy-metal-album cover motif. It's sort of an art project for me. These are second in that series. I've nicknamed them the "Dragonspine" gloves, since part of the project is coming up with totally classy and not at all tasteless names for each entry.
I'll post entry #3 once I get those done.

Where do you get the metal for it? The scale-lookin stuff on the wrists.

I don't know how I feel about the modern ski-glove look

you got some other angles on them?

I get my scales from a metal shop up in Canada. (http://www.theringlord.com/)

Do you have any pics of it floating around? I'd rather like to.

No, but I might draw something up when I get time.

Dude, you should get a job designing things for Bud/K.

I like these better than the first. The spikes break up the puffy, ski-glove look. Perhaps some metal bands across that area might work in a future rendition as well. Could you make them fingerless, perhaps?

That's a good idea with the bands... I (unfortunately) don't have tools to work sheet metal at the moment, but I'll keep that in mind.
I could make them fingerless pretty easily, but that seems really weird to do on insulated gloves.

if you actually hit somebody with those gloves on, i'm pretty sure it would hurt your hand a bit more than the person you're actually hitting. IMO, the spikes should be bolted to metal plates that are riveted to the gloves. then you can bitchslap with reckless abandon.

You should make some Rollerball gloves.

Like the ones in the seventies film, starring James Caan, not the awful remake.

Neildo has the correct, otherwise they're just gay Judas Priest gloves

I'm quite positive that you're right. The spikes are screwed in, and if you punched anything, the screws would just dig back into your knuckles rather viciously. They'll also likely wiggle to one side or another as they do it, scratching up your skin the process.
Fortunately, I'm a man of peace.

however, in their current form they are perfect for duel challenging.

So this is all camouflage, then? That's cool.

Why not put the spikes on the palms of the gloves instead? Fuck while your at it maybe put some barbed wire in a fleshlight. Fun for the masochistic masturbator.

I must say ManchildMclaw is definitely HELL BENT FOR LEATHER!

While they're not that great for punching people, they work quite well if you're Leather Rebel with All Guns Blazing. Pretty good for Metal Meltdowns on Hell Patrols, too.

You know, you could make those functional for striking by spot welding the spikes onto a thin metal plate, or maybe some of your chainmail so your fist was not in a fixed position. This would help spread out the force of the impact when you hit something.

Although I'm not sure how you would go about inserting this into a glove without completely disassembling said glove.

He should just make a massive sledgehammer fist, like Hellboy.

Oddly enough, Hellboy isn't very metal.

Says me. Nothing about the Hellboy comics has ever given off a metal vibe to me.

It'd be pretty hard to do on the inside of the glove, but pretty easy to do on the outside.

I agree. H.P. Lovecraft having chaste sex with Raymond Chandler, yes, but metal? No.
