As one of the warriors of your Viking tribe, you travel frequently. It’s a hard life and one that is not kind to the weak. If you cannot keep up you will be left behind.
Your many travels require armour designed to last. You rely on such pieces as your RFB Viking Greaves to keep you going strong! Along with your sword, sturdy shoes and your skill, you expect that you may please the gods in many battles. You certainly have the warrior’s instinct.
Epic Armoury’s Ready-for-Battle Viking Greaves are fancy leather greaves designed to protect the calves. The armour is constructed from leather straps cut from chrome-tanned, split leather, and weaved together to create a beautiful design. The armour is secured to the leg by sturdy leather straps and brass buckles.
The Viking Greaves are hemmed with additional soft split leather to keep the armour from deforming with excessive wear. This armour matches our Viking Armour and Bracers, but has a distinct, neutral style that will fit with almost any combination of costuming for your first adventure.
Inspired by lamellar armour worn by the Vikings, which would have included small iron plates
Historically, using only leather as armour is factually inconclusive--most Viking wore ordinary clothing and used a shield as protection
Your shield sends a goblin clear off his feet, landing in a pile of his buddies. They miscalculated your massive strength, and are reeling backwards on the retreat. So much for supposed alliances--you can feel the goblin blood soaked clear down to your Tunic. They have learned too late that betraying an Orc of the Black Water would mean death. It’s too bad they won’t be able to share the word with their kin.
You adjust your great shield, letting out a battle cry of rage as another goblin aims for your ankles. Shield Bash. This one goes flying another fifteen paces.
Epic Armoury’s tunic is a light Viking-style shirt often worn as an undergarment, with a large V-shaped neckline. Reaching from the shoulders to the mid-thighs and made from comfortable, dyed cotton, this tunic is an extremely versatile item that can be a costume all by itself--or work as a base layer in a more complicated design. Made from durable fabric, this neutral cut tunic is an essential and long-lasting piece in any costuming wardrobe.
Historically worn by a great variety of people and cultures--with many different types of cuts!
The name derives from the Latin tunica, the basic garment worn by both men and women in Ancient Rome
Generally considered a male garment and was still worn in Norway until the 17th century
Such drinks are often the difference between a state of peace or a state of war.
Epic Armoury’s Chieftain Drinking Horn is a drinking vessel designed to hold half a liter of your favourite grog. This genuine horn comes from the Indian water buffalo, and was chosen specifically for its dark colouring. The outside is polished to perfection and engraved with a criss-cross pattern. The inside of the horn is treated for food consumption and longevity using a wax coating.
Enjoy cool and room temperature liquids in your drinking horn while remaining in character, hiding away the unsightly plastic bottles. Our drinking horns are a great addition to feasts and war meetings. Use it like any other cup (remember to drink with the point of the horn rotated to the left or right...you’ll thank us) and keep it from spilling by resting it in a leather frog on your belt or in the wrought iron horn stand that comes with this purchase. With the proper care, you can expect your Chieftain Drinking Horn to last many long years.
You are laughing too loud. You realize it must be scaring your enemy, because no one wants to face you on the frontline anymore. They think you are crazed. Maybe you are, because the adrenaline of being in a battle has left you feeling drunk with exhilaration.
If no one will come to you, it’s time to bring the fight to them! One poor soldier desperately strikes at you and you feel the thud of his sword against your RFB Viking Leather Armour, but it hardly makes a scratch. You see the terror in his eyes as your laugh fills the field and you bring the strength of your axe down upon him.
You are Raynor Ironshood. Let them fear you. Let them all fear you.
This bestselling Ready-for-Battle Viking Leather Armour is an adorned leather cuirass that protects the torso on all sides. Made from chrome-tanned, plated leather bands set in a diagonal weave on the front, this armor is both a distinct and practical addition to your kit.
Attach the front to the separate back plate with split-leather straps fitted at the top and sides and secured with iron buckles on the back. These straps make this cuirass highly adjustable, allowing it to fit closely to the individual wearer. Along the edges of the front and back plate the armour is rimmed with soft split-leather, making it harder to deform with excessive use.
This Viking Leather Armour is fully compatible with other Epic Armoury leather and metal armour pieces. While designed to fit a Viking setting, the style will also match a broad range of worlds and characters, allowing you the freedom to create your own unique style.
