The enemy's front line is impenetrable thanks to their shield wall. Fighting has become a stalemate, both sides pushing, but neither able to gain even an inch. That's when they call for you and your legendary Halberd.

You arrive to the front amongst soldiers that are exhausted and bloody, who regain their energy when they see you at their side. With a fell swoop your axe cuts across the enemy line, beyond their shields and into their ranks.

The tides of battle begin to turn in your favor.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Halberd is a 190 cm latex poleaxe inspired by a weapon used during the late medieval period. The Halberd's axe-like head has a 35 cm blade for chopping, a long spear for piercing, and a claw-like spike for grappling. The axe-head is specially reinforced to make the weapon durable and versatile. Handpainted and sculpted to appear realistic, detailed metal and bolts run along the pole, which is carved to appear like worn wood.

Made from durable closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.

  • Term comes from the German words Halm (staff) and Barte (axe)
  • Typically designed to keep mounted troops at a distance, but was considered versatile
  • Spikes were added to the hammer's head to grapple mounted opponents
