The Neck Plate King is an oval plate of armour designed to sit around the neck and give additional protection to the vitals of throat and thorax. The neck plate has an elongated front piece and a shorter back piece, which are fitted together and can be fastened to the a breast- and back plate with top-grain leather straps. The front piece is sculpted with a wide, raised section arching from the shoulders down to the apex of the front neck plate. The raised elements are polished shiny while the body of the mail is a matt grey made by treating the mild steel material with acid. Around the rim the neck plate has a low flange. Though designed to go with the other ’King’ armours it is fully interchangeable with other Epic Armoury armours allowing the wearer full freedom to customize character looks.
