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, but your Braced Shield deflects his attempt easily. 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.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Braced Shield is a round latex shield inspired by wooden shields of the early Middle Age vikings and Saxons. With a wooden texture, sculpted iron rim and centre plate, this simple 60 cm shield has a lot of detail thanks to the handpainted wood and iron finish. Defend yourself against your enemies and make this Braced Shield a part of your epic fighting style--in a wide range of games!

Wear this Braced Shield left-handed with the use of two leather arm straps on the back, 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
