The Wizard was angry. Not only had they conflated him with the bombing of Dresden, not only had they ruined his Star Wars marathon, they'd had the temerity to ask about The Hat.
"It's a Witch Hunter's Hat. Do I look like a Witch Hunter to you?" he asked between clenched teeth.
"But it's on the cover of the books!" the annoying one replied.
"Then maybe you should have bought the UK edition." he said in a voice colder than the mantle of Winter's Knight.
Protecting the innocent people of your country from the spells and curses of witches rests on your shoulders. It is your responsibility to find the dreaded creatures and put an end to their evil ways--often at the risk of your own life in the process.
Anymore, the townsfolk recognize you by your iconic wide-brimmed hat. You had it enchanted to protect yourself from charms and illusions, but it is also a symbol of the hunter that you are. It is a warning to any witch who dares to cross paths with you.
Epic Armoury’s full-grain leather costume Witch Hunter Hat is handmade and embellished with a cotton canvas band, held in place with glue and leather pentagram along the brim, giving this gothic fashion a arcane twist. The stitching around the edges and the stiff crown strengthen this hat’s structural stability, so with regular leather care you can expect Epic Armoury’s Witch Hunter Hat to have a long lifetime. Use this Witch Hunter Hat to create a steampunk statement or add some interest to your kit.
Inspired by a similar hat worn by Vesemir, Geralt’s mentor in The Witcher universe--considered the height of fashion in the year 1112!

This pretty armour vest is a very special eyecatcher. It is made of hemmed and braided leather strips, that are riveted at each single crosspoint. Through this, its surface is getting very stabile and almost like a brigantine. It is very flexible and hardly hinders your movements, but it gives good protection for your body.
It is suitable for light soldiers and especially for bow- or crossbow-men, as you can move around freely and a your arms are uncovered.
As seen in our costume proposal, the vest can be well combined with chainmail or a chainmail collar. It also fits over a gambeson. Additionally it can be extended into a suit of heavy armour by adding some pieces of plate armour.
There are two different sizes of this vest, but it can be easily adjusted with the three lateral buckles.
The padded coif "Leopold" is, like a classic coif, fixed under the chin with two sturdy ribbons of cotton. Under a helmet, it gives this considerably more wearing comfort and protective effect. Of course, it can also be worn as a stand-alone headgear.
Oh no, you think, as a sword and a helmet are thrust into your farm-calloused hands. You’ve never been trained as a soldier, let alone asked to fight on a dangerous battlefield!
But here you are, suddenly standing in a row of your neighbors with your helmet secured over a padded Undercap. You await the advancing orc raid headed for your farms and your town, and you just hope that somehow you’ll make it through. At least your helmet feels solid on your head. That’s something to be thankful for, at least...right?
Epic Armoury’s Undercap is a padded hood that fits over the head and ears comfortably. Made from quilted cotton canvas lined with a soft polyester interior and a medium cotton outer layer, this padding can be worn on its own or as padding beneath a heavy steel or leather helmet.
The Undercap is stitched to ensure the padding will remain evenly spaced. Secure it to your head by tying the cotton cords under the chin. With its neutral style, the Undercap will work on a wide variety of characters. Match it with other Epic Armoury armours and clothes to fit your unique style!
Used as padding under chainmail or plate armour
Historically, a high-medieval European gambeson was recorded as being capable of stopping sword blows from penetrating the skin
Could stop heavy arrows and mace and axe impacts with the addition of overlaying chainmail
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.

You were not born a soldier. If anything, you were born to be quite the opposite! A farmer’s child, you grew up working the land and minding your own business.

Spangenhelmets are described as helmets with a riveted band on the scull part - be it a single one or crosswise. These bands held the seperate pieces of the scull part together and named this kind of helmet. It was worn all around europe (and parts of central Asia) until the 11th century.
Mytholon's Dietrich Spangenhelmet is the most simple form of this kind: made with one central band along the scull part and detailed with an additional band wrapped around the rim.
The helmet is being delivered with an inner liner of foam and a chin strap to hold it in place.
