You strike your sword against your Shield of Lionidas, shouting alongside your legionaries outside the gates of Syracuse. Inside, their people are filled with terror, deafened by your army's trumpets and noise. Arrows rain down and you and your fellow soldiers form a barrier with your shields.

There is nothing that can stop you. The design of your shield allows you to stand in close formation, advancing on their defenders and dispatching them quickly.

DETAILS

Epic Armory's Shield of Lionidas is a concave shield inspired by the famous Greek warriors who faced the thousand nations of the Persian Empire. This 70 cm shield is handpainted and sculpted to look like bronze with deep dents and scrapes from previous battles. A capital lambda, or V-shape, is carved into the face with its point at the dead centre.

Wear this Shield of Lionidas left- or right-handed with the use of one leather grip and an adjustable leather arm strap on the back, secured through hard EVA foam for a reliable and solid grip made to last. Feel confident that this latex shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance.

HISTORY

  • Inspired by the classical Spartan chalkaspis, a round shield made of bronze with a big capital lambda, or V-Shape, on the face
  • Designed for bashing and shield-wall tactics
