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 Leather Brigandine, 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 Leather Brigandine is leather armour reinforced with heavy leather plates designed to protect the entire torso, upper thighs and groin. Made from full-grain leather and brass coated rivets, this menacing waistcoat is both lightweight and durable. Secure this brigandine with five heavy leather straps and brass buckles down the front, further adjustable by tightening leather cords along the flanks between the armpit and midthigh.
The Leather Brigandine is fully compatible with other Epic Armoury armours, and its distinctive but low-fantasy style allow it to be used across games and characters. With the proper leather care, you can expect this armour to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment for a long time!
Worn over a gambeson or coat of chainmail by soldiers ranging from archers to knights
Came into wide use during the 1400s, but this particular style was more popular in the 16th century
Provided more mobility, but less protection than plate armour
The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed!
The black Leather Shadow Cuirass Torso Armor is a beautifully crafted cuirass designed to protect you in Larp combat. Even though death usually comes from the front, this thick leather armor will protect your chest and back, resting on your hips to allow you a full range of movement in battle. A series of straps and buckles allow the Drow warrior to don the armor quickly and perfectly adjusting it to your shape. This fantasy armor is made from stitched leather plates and is designed to endure the harshest environments in the Underworld!
Mytholon's "Fafnir" body armour is something really special. Metal plates have been riveted on a backing of padded suede leather. Especially the comfort of the wearer and the feasibility of putting on a complete suit of armour in a few minutes were our goals. Because of this there is no need to wear a gambeson or a similar garment.
You have the choice between three different adjustments which you can make yourselves. The different parts of the armour are connected by leather straps. The three different sizes are achieved by pulling these straps through eyelets. Additionally, you can omit some parts of the armour, eg. the shoulder parts or the thigh protectors.
In their opinion, this black version of the "Fafnir" armour is specially suited to be used as armour for dark and evil NPCs, because they won`t need much time to arm themselves.
