A King deserves the attention of his subjects--his position and power demand such respect--but you also know he must look the part. You have hired the finest craftsmen in your land to create armour fitting a King’s status.
Your King Templar Armour is embellished with ridges and shined studs. A purple cloak drapes down from your sturdy, confident shoulders. Everything about you is built to last. No one shall look upon you with anything but admiration.
You, after all, are the King.
Epic Armoury’s King Templar Arm Protection is a set of metal vambraces designed to protect the forearms from harm. Rounded at the edges and decorated with shiny steel rivets, these vambraces are designed to sit comfortably over the forearm, reaching from the elbow and narrowing at the wrists. Secure this armour with a top-grain leather strap below the elbow and another above the wrist. Each plate has been embellished with a polished cross of raised metal on a matte-steel background.
The King Templar Arm Protection is designed to match Epic Armoury’s King Armour, but is fully usable with other Epic Armoury metal products, giving you the freedom to customize your character’s costume. 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.
Available in sizes Medium and Large.
- Unlike popular belief, arm protection was only called a “bracer” if it was meant to protect the forearm of an archer. Actual forearm protection like this would have been called a “vambrace” or “forearm guard”
- Plate armour became more popular as firearm technology became more prevalent during the 13th century
- Historically designed with sculpted ridges to provide reinforced protection and to deflect attacks on a chaotic battlefield
