You watch the caravan coming up the road from far off, counting at least two guards and a handful of merchants. Only one of them is on horseback, with the cart pulled by a sad pair of mules.

You feel confident in your new Rogue Torso armour, smirking as you signal to your fellows who lie in the shadows. There may not be much to steal, but you and your mates will take it all.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Epic Dark Rogue Torso is a cuirass made from leather and steel. This breastplate circles the neck in a narrow U-shape, with the steel chest protecting the thorax before sloping around the ribcage to protect under the arms. The steel plate is fitted on brown leather using heavy-duty rivets, and is secured using straps around the back and across the shoulderblades. The lower edge of the breast plate rounds to fit against the crest of the hips, dipping down into a point at the front. This design is mimicked by the overlapped leather plate, which also serves as an anchor for the Rogue Tassets.

The Rogue Torso is designed to match Epic Armoury’s Rogue Armour, but is fully usable with other Epic Armoury metal products, giving you the freedom to customize your character’s costume. Made of 1 mm thick galvanized mild steel and top-grain leather, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Available in Polished Steel or Epic Dark; and 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
