You assume the bandits are going to kill you when they realize no one is going to pay an Adventurer’s ransom, but for now they leave you tied up in the cellar of an old farmhouse. They took your weapon. Worst of all they took your pride...but they did not take your uncanny ability to wiggle out of ropes!

Free at last, you scan the old cellar for something useful. That’s when you spot a Kite Shield in the corner. The dust suggests that it’s been there for a while, but upon inspection you can see that the wood and metal rim are still good. The grip is solid in your hand and for the first time you have a small hope that with this added defense you might be able to muscle your way out of this situation after all!

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Uncoated RFB Kite Shield is a semi-curved, kite-shield inspired by 10th to 12th century Normans. This 60 cm long shield arrives in plain black, carved with a rim detailed to look like metal with studs. While the design is simple, this Kite Shield is timeless and classic, and is being sold without colours or latex coating for your do-it-yourself project. It arrives matte, uncoloured, and undecorated, so that you might add whatever detailing you wish!

Wear this Kite Shield left-handed with the use of two leather arm straps on the back, and feel confident that this hard EVA foam shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance.

Directions for use:

Paint the shield using paint specifically designed for EVA foam. When the paint is completely dry, coat the shield using clear latex. Dip the shield or apply using a brush to create a very thin layer. Clear latex is also available in our shop.
