You use the silence as a cloak of armour, masked in the darkness with the help of your Mempo, waiting for the perfect opportunity. You ready your throwing knives, ready to launch your deadly attack when the lord finally emerges from inside the keep. One quick flick of your wrist and the lord breathes his last, you knife hitting its mark...and you vanish, leaving their guards bewildered and afraid.
Epic Armoury’s Mempo is a leather half-mask inspired by early Asian soldiers. This mask protects the face from the bridge of the nose to the chin. Four ventilation slits allow proper airflow through the mask’s mouth, designed to be comfortably worn for long periods of time. Secure the mask to your face by tying two long cotton-weave cords around the head.
Made from 3mm thick vegetable-tanned full-grain leather, Epic Armoury’s Mempo is designed to add a great layer to your fantasy or historic costume. With the best quality materials, this mask is built to withstand extensive abuse with regular leather care.
Worn by Japanese and Chinese infantry and cavalry from as early as 200 BC
Used to balance and secure top-heavy helmets, often decorated to give the wearer an extra fierce look
Your Knight’s Code is one of valor, truth and courage. You are tasked with defending the innocent and the weak, and today your oath is being tested. Outside of town there has been a bandit attack on a merchant and his family, and it’s up to you to rescue them.
Your squire straps your Sallet onto your head over the weight of your chainmail coif, and with a prayer to your god you and your small unit strike out onto the road.
Criminals be warned.
Epic Armoury’s Sallet is a protective helmet with a movable visor closely based on the historical helmet used in 15th century Germany. The visor is reinforced and shaped to fit comfortably around the face while still providing good air flow through its ventilation holes. This helmet is covered with detail that is both beautiful and practical. Wear the visor over the forehead or the face thanks to its flower-decorated hinge, or enjoy the decorative reinforcement plating along the brow. A flexible lobster neck-plate protects the back of the head behind the ears.
Secure the Sallet helmet by tightening the leather strap beneath the chin, keeping the helmet in place. Made of 1 mm thick mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.
Replaced the Italian bascinet during the mid 15th century
The humans are short lived and greedy creatures, like lice infecting the world with their disease-ridden numbers. Like most sentient creatures, however, family is exceptionally important. A human’s heritage is a part of their identity.
That’s why you took the prince’s face after you defeated him in battle. You wanted the royal family to fear you and your ferocious might. Wearing your Human Trophy Mask has caused quite a commotion in the human ranks.
Epic Armoury’s Human Trophy Mask is a face mask designed to look like the torn away face of a human man. Hide your face behind the stolen one of a defeated enemy, kept as a trophy to prove your warrior’s skill and victory. Made from 100% natural latex, this mask covers the whole face with roomy holes around the eyes, nostrils, and mouth for comfort and speech.
The face itself has a pronounced nose and beardless chin. Wrinkles and jagged edges give it the realistic appearance of having been torn away from the face of the victim. The complexion is a sickly yellow skin tone.
Secure the mask to your face using the adjustable leather cords. Customize the mask’s appearance with Epic Effects Water-Based Makeup.
