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 garage, looking for a new weapon. That’s when you spot the Baseball Bat tucked away on a shelf behind a few flat footballs and basketballs. You give it a few test swings, liking the balance. It will suit your needs nicely.

The Toolbox Classic
Epic Armoury’s Claw Hammer is a 55 cm foam imitation of an everyday workshop hammer, typically used for driving or pulling nails from wood. Hammers like this have been used since even before the 1600s--specifically seen in an etching from 1514--so it’s perfect for fantasy and modern post-apocalyptic LARPs alike.
Made from foam around an 8 mm solid fibreglass rod and coated in durable latex, this Claw Hammer is safe for your next game or children’s theater production. It is designed to provide only light force to your neighborhood friendly zombie, unlike its metal and wood counterpart.
The Claw Hammer has a 48.5 cm grip, hand painted to look like real wood grain, and a 19 cm head that curves into a V-shaped claw. The head is 5 cm across and is also hand painted with a metal-like finish. While it is great as a carpenter’s prop, we also feel this product works as a great impromptu weapon against radioactive beasts and raiders! It’s always handy to have something like that lying around.

I am the guardian of this fortified crossroads trading post.We repel attacks from the Outside with a determination that borders on obsession. This new dawn is but an illusion, we’re prisoners of an eternal nightmare where everything is fighting and tragedy. I spend night and day on the palisade and patrolling around the outpost. We have a few guns left and I hear rumours that some have redeveloped the crossbow. Me? I no longer trust all this technology that has so often betrayed us all. When I need to crush the skulls of zombies, break mutant heads or send the teeth of bandits flying, I have but one allegiance. I devoted myself body and soul to Bertha, a Spanner I ripped from the claws of a zombie 5 years ago. It hasn’t left my side ever since.It is the anchor that keeps me stable in this infernal river that serves us as a poor excuse for existence. The day that she’ll leave me will be the day I fall in combat.
Big Bertha is a remarkably faithful replica of a very large spanner similar to the ones we see in horror flicks where blood, gore and zombie parts fly everywhere. Like our other long weapons of our workshop, Big Bertha features a firm shape that does stands during fights yet remains soft and flexible enough to prevent injuries. Don’t leave it lying; your father-in-law could mistake it for the real thing.

The undead have found your hiding hole, and you are nearly cornered by an endless sea of flesh-hungry abominations. You’re barely able to escape, but not without losing your gun. You’re practically defenseless.
You happen upon a junkyard. It’s an area that gives you the creeps, but you’re desperate to find a new weapon. That’s when you spot the Lead Pipe sticking out of a pile of refuse. You pull the metal free, giving it a few test swings. It will suit your needs for now.
Dark Moon’s Lead Pipe may lack some sophistication, but it makes up for it with plenty of weight and impact. This 52 cm long latex pipe is handpainted to look like tarnished metal. A sculpted tread at both ends of the straight bar serves as a grip and an attachment to a 5 cm long bend. Though not hollow all the way through, the lead pipe is hollow at the ends to add to its realistic appearance.
Plumbers looking for piping material are advised that this item may be better for slaying zombies in the post-apocalypse than running water to a sink. Made from durable closed cell foam around a solid fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that this LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your post-apocalyptic kit.

This bestselling Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone is used for maintenance of Live Action Role Playing foam weapons and equipment covered with latex and/or varnish.
Directions for use:
Latex equipment must be coated with a thin layer of silicone at all times. This prevents the surfaces from drying out, and will prolong the lifespan of your latex equipment. Always check your latex equipment before and after each use. Spray the silicone directly onto your latex product and work it into the entire surface (avoiding leather handles) either with a piece of cloth or using a flat hand. If necessary, wipe off any excess with a dry cotton cloth. Always store your latex equipment in a dry and dark place.
