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 Shoulderplates are a set of two shoulder guards with spaulders. The spaulders have three ridged metal plates--or lames--overlaying one another to provide laminate protection of the upper arms. The shoulderplates are fastened with leather straps around the biceps and at the shoulder blade, attaching to a breastplate. Epic Armoury breast- and backplates can be purchased separately and have fittings for mounting the shoulders.

The Mercenary Shoulderplates are designed to match Epic Armoury's Mercenary 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 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
