Someone might say that you are a cruel person. The truth is that you aren't cruel--but you certainly aren't a hero, either. The Battle of Delle is not one for your homeland or for your own people, but the pay is good and the fighting even better.

Life as a mercenary has made you into a hardened and effective warrior, and while some call it 'luck' when your enemy's sword slides off your Merc Armour, you call it strategy. After all, now your enemy's heart is a wide open target.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Mercenary Tassets are reminiscent of the typical pikeman armour of the late medieval and renaissance era. The piece consists of three broad metal plates overlapping each other to provide laminate protection for the hips and upper thigh. The tassets leave the pelvis somewhat unprotected, and normally a cod-piece would be added to protect the groin area. The tassets are secured in place with leather cords.

The Mercenary Tassets are designed to match Epic Armoury's Mercenary Armour, and are the only tassets not fully interchangeable with other Epic Armoury metal products. 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 One Size.

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
