Never mind using your shield for guarding yourself – be practically offensive and use it to bash in your opponent’s grey matter instead! The Epic Armoury Orc Buckler is a small latex LARP shield worn around the wearer’s arm, inspired by the brutal and cataclysmal ways of orcs and other terrifying creatures. Use it to shield yourself against blows or simply use it as a mean to swiftly clear your way from any annoying goblinesque obstacles. The rough buckler is elongated with rounded corners; rugged and worn with dents and scratches, it sports a collection of golden riveted detailing on front. Featuring two sturdy bands with adjustable buckles to strap your arm securely against the underside, feel confident that this hard EVA foam and latex shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular maintenance.
The buckler goes well with Epic Armoury’s Ruinous range of products, for instance the Orc Cleaver. However, its naturalistic design can be used by a wide range of characters such as trolls, ogre barbarians, or necromancers. With its unique detailing and natural look, you can make this Orc Buckler a trust-worthy central piece when crafting your character’s kit.
Earliest references to orcs are found in Old English and Anglo-Saxon sources, such as in Beowulf and in 16th century Italian folktales
The word itself stems from the Latin word Orcus, which was the name given to the Roman deity of the dead
J.R.R. Tolkien’s 20th century The Lord of the Rings series describes orcs as brutish, aggressive beings with a taste for human flesh
The chopping tool was favoured by the men of the islands. Whilst true that it lacked the finesse of a smaller, handheld knife, it did provide the stasifaction of cleaving through the shining armour of the men that arrived trying to take their land.
A Powerful Chopping Blade
Epic Armoury’s Panabas is a 140 cm long LARP sword inspired by the southern Philippines. Featuring a forward curving 75 cm latex blade, the Panabas is a tribal weapon that is great for your Ruinous character! Handmade and hand painted to look like real metal and wood, it is made out of soft EVA foam around a 12 mm solid fibreglass rod core--chosen for its durability and safety. It is coated with latex for its smooth appearance and to minimize shredding.
The Panabas is sculpted to look like a long, axe-like blade that has been heavily notched from war. The 37 cm handle grip is textured like a real wooden staff, with the suggestion of leather binds around its ends. It’s perfect for orcs and barbarians of all sorts.
