You look upon your leading officer as he makes his way down the line of your fellow soldiers. Your fate and the fate of your entire unit is dependent on this veteran's word, and you find yourself relieved not to shoulder such a heavy burden.

"We must fight!" your officer shouts for all to hear. You adjust your Enclosed Leg Protection, double checking the buckles as you listen to him continue. "For our homes and for our families, we will fight until we can fight no more!" With a resounding cheer, your fellow soldiers ready themselves for the charge. You withdraw your weapon, eager and afraid all at once.

The battle has begun.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Enclosed Leg Protection is an essential for any person wanting to protect the legs while on a chaotic battlefield. This pair of greaves features poleyns covering the knees and full greaves designed to protect the shins and calves from damage. Rolled edges and small ridges around the rim further protect the kneecap, making it less likely that you will take a pesky arrow to the knee--thus increasing your adventuring days.

Two leather straps are used to keep each of the greaves in place. Made of 1 mm mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, these armour pieces are built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Available in size Medium/Large.

HISTORY

  • Plate armour became more popular as firearm technology became more prevalent during the 13th century
  • Historically designed with sculpted ridges and overlapping plates to provide reinforced protection and to deflect attacks on a chaotic battlefield
