The trick is never to stay in one place for too long. Inevitably the undead will sniff you out of your hiding hole, and you’ll find yourself cornered by an endless sea of flesh-hungry abominations. Unfortunately, while you’re on the move, your last encounter emptied the last of your bullets. With an empty gun you’re defenseless.
You take refuge in an abandoned police station, looking for a new weapon. Most people have thought the same thing, because the place is picked clean. You are lucky, however, as you stumble upon an overturned desk. Beneath the mess you find an intact Baton. Giving it a few test swings, you find that you like the balance. It will serve your needs for now.
Epic Armoury’s Baton is a modern club based on one of the oldest weapons known to man--and we guarantee that it will also be a favourite in apocalyptic times. The Baton is 56 cm long with a 16 cm oval-shaped handle carved with a spiral pattern for extra grip. The Baton’s pommel and crossguard are frustum-shaped, also designed to keep your grip firm on the weapon. The club itself is 40 cm long, and 2.5 cm wide at the base. The club widens to a diameter of 2.5 cm near the tip, balancing the baton for more powerful strikes.
Made from durable closed cell foam around a solid fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your post-apocalyptic kit.
An example of a weapon you might find after the world-as-we-know-it ends
Used as protection when you’ve inevitably run out of bullets for your gun
Original clubs made from wood were used in prehistoric times
Typically carried by law-enforcers for forced-compliance and self-defense
The air cuts through your armour, chilling you down to your bones. Tonight there is rumor that the Wild Hunt rides, and while you know the superstitions and seem an unlikely challenger to the fae--you stand true to your post.
As a guard, you are dressed in uniform. From your Guardsman Helmet to your clearly marked tabard, it is your duty to stay and fight whatever may come...no matter the number or skill of your enemy.
Epic Armoury’s Polished Steel Guardsman Helmet is a steel helmet inspired by German sallet helmets of the 15th century. The Guardsman Helmet’s brim is broad and steeply sloped in order to protect the head and face from weapons. Two eye holes in the brim allow for protected vision. Wear this helmet with a bevor for additional neck and face protection.
Secure the Guardsman Helmet by tightening the leather strap beneath the chin, keeping the helmet in place. Made of 1 mm thick mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.
Similar in shape to a German sallet or an infantry Kettle Hat
Provided the added benefit of protecting the eyes from sunlight
Design was eventually replaced with the close helm and burgonet
Sure you could* use this to fasten rope around a fixed point on a yard arm, but it's much more effective as an improvised weapon to slug someone in near quarters.
*No, you couldn't. Please note that the Epic Armoury belaying pin is not a naval use device and is intended for roleplay purposes only.
You are part of a small group of men that have been secretly conspiring against your captain for weeks now. The time to act has come; the captain has grown suspicious and your chance to take control of the ship may slip away from you like badly secured rigging slipping through your hands during a storm.
You catch him standing alone on deck staring into the distant horizon. This has to be done quickly and quietly. You wallop your Belaying Pin swift and hard on the back of this poor bugger’s head before he can even scream: “Mutiny!”
Epic Armoury’s Belaying Pin measures 40 cm and is made from durable closed cell foam with a core of flexible tubing and finished with a strong latex coating. Hand painted and sculpted, this weapon appears to be made of real wood. Great impromptu LARP weapon for thumping skulls or for disciplining deck boys.
Whether a novice or a veteran you rely on solid armour to protect you. Epic Armoury’s RFB Veteran Armour is an elegant leather cuirass designed to protect your torso from harm. The armour is constructed from chrome-tanned split leather and carefully stitched around the edges to create a simple yet aesthetic design with lines suggesting a slim waist and broad shoulders. Secure it tightly over the chest and abdomen using the four sturdy leather straps – each riveted with decorative brass studs – and brass buckles. The strong leather lacing at the flanks allows you to further adjust the fit if needed
Hemmed with additional soft split leather to keep it from deforming with excessive wear, this armour will withstand any LARP abuse, you might force on it. The cuirass matches our Veteran Greaves and Bracers, but has a distinct, neutral style that will fit with almost any combination of costuming in the medieval and renaissance eras. Wear it over chainmail or a padded gambeson, or - for a more casual look - over a tunic or doublet, when you embark on your next adventure.
Inspired by “brigandine” armour from the Middle Ages, but lighter without the usual metal plates riveted into the armour
Inspired style came into wide use during the 15th century
The Star Elf Ears from maskworld are pointed ears typical of very logical alien races. The handcrafted Star Ears from maskworld are "Handcrafted in Germany" of high-quality latex using a method preferred by professional make-up artists. These high-quality ears are based on the aliens portrayed in a series of films.
Their wealth of detail and realistic skin structure create a perfect transformation and the ears can be applied easily and quickly due to their thin edges. Latex ears from maskworld are very sturdy and can be used several times if they are handled with care. The enclosed maskworld Mastix is a highly skin-compatible spirit gum for the easy application of all types of latex prosthetic pieces and hair effects.

With detailed, illustrated step-by-step instructions
Epic Effects Mastix Spirit Gum is a non-toxic adhesive for applying latex prosthetics and hair to skin. The gum is almost invisible once dried, improving the look of prosthetics. Mastix Spirit Gum is safe to use on children, but should be kept out of reach and applied only with adult supervision. The glue comes in a 12 ml bottle with screw-on lid. Inside the lid, the bottle is suited with a tiny brush helping the user apply the glue effectively.
Directions for use:
Clean the skin and the prosthetic with Mastix Spirit Gum Remover.
Apply a thin layer of glue to your prosthetic with an applicator. Let it dry completely until clear and repeat with a second layer.\
Apply the prosthetic in the desired position and hold in place for ten seconds.
Gently peel the prosthetic away from the skin starting at one corner, using the Mastix Spirit Gum Remover to dissolve the glue and to clean the skin. Then clean your skin and the prosthetic with mild soap and warm water.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Epic Effect Mastix Spirit Gum should not be used around the eyes or on mucous membranes like the lips, eyelids or on private areas. Keep away from open flames, as this product is highly flammable.
