The monstrous undead with a hammer the size of your head has you in his sights, and you’ve found yourself standing without an ally. Your usual tactic involves skirting around the battle, picking your fights strategically. Now there is no time.
You duck beneath the first blow, keeping your Wooden Buckler between the hammer and your soft body. You’re faster than the rotting monstrosity, but in your desperation you trip and roll. Again the hammer falls, and you raise up your Wooden Buckler to catch the force. Your small shield holds, buying time while your friends finally come to your aid.
You were a warrior who once carried a sword, but too often did you find yourself against an armoured opponent. No more. Now you carry a Short Mace.
This weapon was designed to destroy even the most heavily armoured enemy, relying on brute strength to batter and bludgeon. After all, you can disarm someone without cutting off their limb--all you must do is break an arm or two.
Epic Armoury’s Short Mace is a 70cm one-handed mace with a utilitarian design. It features a small head with pointed flanges, sculpted and hand painted to look like real metal. The head is actually made of soft foam, reinforced with a harder foam core. It attaches to the realistic wood grain shaft, hand painted and sculpted to look like dark wood reinforced by riveted metal. The grip has been wrapped in suede leather for the greatest comfort.
Made from durable closed cell foam around a solid fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, your new LARP mace will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your Sovereign kit.
A traditional mace flange would have been designed to penetrate armour
Maces were first designed to cause harm without penetrating armour due to the force of their blows
Commonly made of iron, but also occasionally copper and bronze
