Never go into battle before first tasting your favorite ale. That is the advice you would give any of your fellow Dwarves, for you never know when this may be your last fight.
You slam your Beer Mug onto the table as you await the finest dark ale you know. The tavern was quiet before you walked inside, tense with the anticipation of a coming war, but you are loud and bring life back to its walls. You raise a toast to the barkeep and to any nearby, granting them glory on the battlefield before drinking deeply from your mug.
It would be a true shame to leave this world while thirsty.
Epic Armoury’s Beer Mug with Metal Bands is a throwing weapon handy for impromptu fights against other midnight boozers. The beer mug is cylindrical, standing 20 cm tall with a 18 cm diameter. The mug is carved with a wood texture and coloured brown to resemble the staves of a cask, rimmed with riveted metal-hoops. The hoops connect to the metal-coloured handle which is 8 cm deep, leaving plenty of room for grip. The inside is coloured black, mimicking a dark wax typically found on the inside of wooden mugs.
Made from coreless durable closed cell foam and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that this Beermug will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.
Also called a “tankard,” which originally referred to any wooden drinking vessel
Similar to the earliest form of a tankard, which did not have a lid and resembled a barrel
Earliest form has been found from as far back as 2000 years ago
PLEASE NOTE: Unless your local game specifically allows hand to hand combat these are for appearance only and should NOT be used for direct physical contact.
The vast wastelands are dangerous, and so you are armed to the teeth. Guns, knives, and even a chainsaw are kept handy should the specific need arise to use them. Your favourite, however, is your Knuckleduster.
The little piece of metal fits so perfectly in your hand that it goes undetected. It’s a dangerous secret you keep from your enemies, and the reason you will survive while others might not.
Dark Moon’s Knuckleduster is a realistic looking knuckle duster designed to be used as a throwing weapon in a post-apocalyptic world. The Knuckleduster is sculpted and handpainted to look like heavy metal and leather, and its 14 cm width fits great in your hand. The grip is created by two large holes, each designed to slide your fingers through.
It is not advised to use this weapon for hand-to-hand combat. Made from coreless durable closed cell foam and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that this Knuckleduster will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your LARP kit.
Knuckledusters are designed to create more damage when punching
A form of knuckle style weapon has been around since ancient times
By the late 19th century, knuckledusters became incorporated into firearms
