Many claimed it was due to the rise of Chaos in the lands, and the the numerological value or gemoetries of the star shield design somehow offered protection. 

 

Your Knight’s Code is one of valor, truth, and courage. You are tasked with defending the innocent and the weak, and today your oath is being tested. Outside of town there has been a bandit attack on a merchant and his family, and it’s up to you to rescue them.

Your squire straps your Star Shield tight onto your arm over the weight of your chainmail, and with a prayer to your god you and your small unit strike out onto the road.

Criminals be warned.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Star Shield is a pentagonal latex shield loosely inspired by the round shields of 10th and 11th century Normans. This 60 cm shield has a design befitting many character types, sculpted and painted to look like an iron shield, reinforced with a studded brass star across the face. A round shield boss in the centre is designed to deflect weapons.

Use this Star Buckler left- or right-handed with the split-leather wrapped punch grip hidden behind the shield boss. The 16 cm handle is 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.

HISTORY

  • Round wooden style was predominantly used in the early European Middle Ages using light, non-splintering wood such as linden, fir, alder or poplar
  • Iron rim was sometimes used as a way to reinforce the shield
  • Used the Shield Boss--the round, convex piece of material at the centre of the shield--to deflect blows

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 Steel 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 Steel Buckler to catch the force. Your small shield holds, buying time while your friends finally come to your aid.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Steel Buckler is a small, versatile round shield, inspired by skilled swordsmen through history. This 40 cm buckler has a neutral design befitting many character types, sculpted and painted to look like an iron shield, reinforced with a round shield boss in the centre and a cross of studded iron across the face.

Use this Steel Buckler left- or right-handed with the split-leather wrapped punch grip hidden behind the shield boss. The 14 cm handle is 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.

HISTORY

  • Originally developed for Bucellarii, personal armies of rich landowners in the late Roman Empire
  • Particularly popular with light-footed fighters during the Renaissance and Baroque eras
  • Used the Shield Boss--the round, convex piece of material at the centre of the shield--to deflect blows

Product information "Star Shield"

Many claimed it was due to the rise of Chaos in the lands, and the the numerological value or gemoetries of the star shield design somehow offered protection. 

 

Your Knight’s Code is one of valor, truth, and courage. You are tasked with defending the innocent and the weak, and today your oath is being tested. Outside of town there has been a bandit attack on a merchant and his family, and it’s up to you to rescue them.

Your squire straps your Star Shield tight onto your arm over the weight of your chainmail, and with a prayer to your god you and your small unit strike out onto the road.

Criminals be warned.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Star Shield is a pentagonal latex shield loosely inspired by the round shields of 10th and 11th century Normans. This 60 cm shield has a design befitting many character types, sculpted and painted to look like an iron shield, reinforced with a studded brass star across the face. A round shield boss in the centre is designed to deflect weapons.

Use this Star Buckler left- or right-handed with the split-leather wrapped punch grip hidden behind the shield boss. The 16 cm handle is 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.
