Actually it is possible to link each scale together with a wire in such a way as to have one wire per scale that creates the pattern on the front, essentially lamellar construction!

We can't say how effective Mountain Scale armor without knowing the design, as someone said. However, given how widespread the armor appeared to have been, it seems likely that it was effective, else it wouldn't have been as common as it seems to be.

Even if ceremonial, most ceremonial armor was inspired by real armor, and I don't think it was that likely it was so widely shown simply because it was good looking.
