There isn’t time to slow down. The life of a fighter is fast. You move fast, fight fast, and even stand fast. It is also usually true that fighters are quick to fall. The battlefield is a place of chaos and violence, and you cannot afford to be held back by your armour--or this fight will be your last.
You wear your Soldier armour because it is practical and sturdy. Your Soldiers Shoulder has taken numerous hits and never failed you. So, no matter the speed and the insanity, you can keep pace with the best of them.
Epic Armoury’s Soldiers Shoulder is a set of two shoulder guards with spaulders and pauldrons. The spaulder is made from a single plate, shaped to provide protection to the upper arm. The large pauldrons are also made from one plate, curved to sit over the shoulders and overlap the breastplate. This design offers more protection to the otherwise vulnerable armpit. The shoulderplates are fastened with leather straps around the biceps and at the shoulder, tying to a breast- and backplate with an adjustable leather shoulder piece. Epic Armoury breast- and backplates can be purchased separately and have fittings for mounting the shoulders.
The Soldiers Shoulder has a neutral and simple style that easily matches other Epic Armoury metal products, giving you the freedom to customize your character’s costume. Made of 1 mm thick mild steel and chrome 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.
- Historically designed with sculpted ridges and overlapping plates to provide reinforced protection and to deflect attacks on a chaotic battlefield
