The breastplate from the "Elias" series is kept simple and functional. The chest and back plate are connected by flexible leather pieces on the shoulders. This not only increases the mobility, it also allows a quick fitting and displacement of the armor. Of course, this armor also has suspensions for spaulders. It is closed with straps on the sides by which the size can also be adjusted. Thanks to its plain and simple straightness, the short breastplate "Elias" is very suitable for guards, soldiers or mercenaries. It is also a good base to build a heavy armor on it.
The best defence in life means nothing if it is eaten away by time and the elements, or even attacked from the inside. And so it is with your own armour! Humidity, expansion and contraction in the heat, UV radiation, rain, and the withering blows of your enemies all conspire to expose your armour to rust, but worse yet, your very own precious bodily fluids conspire to corrode it from the inside with their impurities and corruption! (which is why we only ever drink pure grain alcohol or rainwater)
You could coat your armour (and other metal objects) in a regular run of the mill lubricant, but many of them are actively hydrophobic. Great for metal but terrible for leather, cotton and other organic materials!
Lanox MX4 is a lanolin rich lubricant, and lanolin is the oil that is naturally produced by sheep to prevent them from shrinking in the rain and generally remain weather proof! It is superior to many artificial compounds and does not damage leathers or organic fibres.

This seven piece full armguard matches and completes the "Markward" series. Upper arm and forearm are, each, safely wrapped in a full steel tube, which is closed by using a buckle-strap. This way they are well protected from blows to the bone. The elbow has a matching guard, which goes along the entire "Markward" series. The full armguard can be adjusted to consisting armour without any problems.
"There it is again! What was that!?" whispered Trema.
"You're being paranoid," responded Durgon "ain't nothing here but us, this treasure, and this large statue."
The statue waited until they past before flexing its arms again.
You watch the caravan coming up the road from far off, counting at least two guards and a handful of merchants. Only one of them is on horseback, with the cart pulled by a sad pair of mules.
You feel confident in your new Rogue Arm, smirking as you signal to your fellows who lie in the shadows. There may not be much to steal, but you and your mates will take it all.
Epic Armoury’s Epic Dark Rogue Arm is a pair of vambraces featuring intimidating, pointed elbow couters. These vambraces protect the top of the forearm down to the wrist, secured by two comfortable leather straps. Rolled edges and small ridges around the rim further protect the elbow and arm, making it less likely that you would take a lucky strike from an enemy
The Rogue Arm is designed to match Epic Armoury’s Rogue Armour, but is fully usable with other Epic Armoury metal products, giving you the freedom to customize your character’s costume. Made of 1 mm thick galvanized mild steel and top-grain leather, this armour set is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.
Plate armour became more popular as firearm technology became more prevalent during the 13th century
Historically designed with sculpted ridges and overlapping plates to provide reinforced protection and to deflect attacks on a chaotic battlefield
The full armguard from the "Edward" series is big enough to be worn on top of a gambeson and even the padded jacket with an additional chain mail.
The upper part is being fixed to the spaulders on the inner side. The arm guard itself is then fitted to the wearers arm by the straps and buckles on upper arm, elbow and forearm.
The inner elbow is being protected by the "shell", as the plate piece on the outside of the guard is called. The forearm is closed inside a two-piece pipe - you will not need any bracers in addition to this piece here.
Your squire buckles the straps of your custom-fit Gothic Armour, adjusting it to be comfortable and snug over your gambeson. You paid top coin for this suit of plate, and you expect people will be impressed when they see how it shines on the battlefield.
Your blacksmith assured you that the Gothic Armour design was the latest in technology, able to withstand and deflect attacks--even arrows from the enemy’s bows. You are a mighty warrior, indeed, to be the owner of such fine craftsmanship. A fitting symbol of your godly-given status.
Epic Armoury’s Gothic Arm Protection is a set of steel elbow cups--or couters--designed to protect the elbow joints. The elbow cups are rounded with reinforcing ridges and decorative steel rivets. Around the rim of each cup, a large V-shaped flange deflects blows away from the elbows. A half-rerebrace protects the upper arm while a vambrace protects the forearm below the couters. Top grain leather straps are used to close the braces and a third leather strap around the elbow keeps the piece in place.
The Gothic Arm Protection is made from mild steel with rolled edges that form ridges around the rims. The design is historically inspired by the renaissance, but the style and functionality is fully interchangeable with other Epic Armoury armours, allowing freedom to combine armours and customize a character’s looks to fit your needs.
You look upon your leading officer as he makes his way down the line of your fellow soldiers. Your fate and the fate of your entire unit is dependent on this veteran’s word, and you find yourself relieved not to shoulder such a heavy burden.
“We must fight!” your officer shouts for all to hear. You adjust your Enclosed Arm Protection, double checking the buckles as you listen to him continue. “For our homes and for our families, we will fight until we can fight no more!” With a resounding cheer, your fellow soldiers ready themselves for the charge. You withdraw your weapon, eager and afraid all at once.
The battle has begun.
Epic Armoury’s Enclosed Arm Protection is an essential for any person wanting to protect the arms while on a chaotic battlefield. This pair of vambraces features flexible elbow couters and vambraces attached to comfortable leather that enclose and protect the entire forearm. Rolled edges and small ridges around the rim further protect the elbow, making it less likely that you would take a lucky strike from an enemy.
Two leather straps are used to keep each of the greaves in place. Made of 1 mm mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, these armour pieces are built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.
