These simple copper shields are wielded by the arthi troops that have sworn allegiance to the Lion Emperor. The arthi themselves are human but consider themselves superior to the kingdoms of man; legend has it they have true lion's blood in their veins to account for their fighting prowess. Everyone else politely doubts it but none speak too loudly - the arthi of the Lion Emperor razed the city of Karthin to the ground when their king embarrassed the Emperor with ease. It stands as a powerful lesson to the other city-states and they pay tributes of gold and myrrh to the Lion Emperor each year. Such is the price of peace.
You strike your sword against your Shield of Lionidas, shouting alongside your legionaries outside the gates of Syracuse. Inside, their people are filled with terror, deafened by your army’s trumpets and noise. Arrows rain down and you and your fellow soldiers form a barrier with your shields.
There is nothing that can stop you. The design of your shield allows you to stand in close formation, advancing on their defenders and dispatching them quickly.
Epic Armory’s Shield of Lionidas is a concave shield inspired by the famous Greek warriors who faced the thousand nations of the Persian Empire. This 70 cm shield is handpainted and sculpted to look like bronze with deep dents and scrapes from previous battles. A capital lambda, or V-shape, is carved into the face with its point at the dead centre.
Wear this Shield of Lionidas left- or right-handed with the use of one leather grip and an adjustable leather arm strap on the back, secured through hard EVA foam for a reliable and solid grip made to last. Feel confident that this latex shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance.
Inspired by the classical Spartan chalkaspis, a round shield made of bronze with a big capital lambda, or V-Shape, on the face

Your horse gallops out onto the fields of a vast plain, chasing after the few orcs fleeing from your arrows. Your horsebow gleams beneath the sunlight, and every arrow you let fly finds its mark. With balance and elven grace, you reach for another arrow in your quiver.
The orcs made a mistake when they entered your family’s forest. You successfully taunted their scouting party into a trap, and now all that is left is a little cleanup.
