Intimidation. It’s your main form of weaponry while facing the heroes, because it gives you full control. When your enemies fear you, they are more likely to make fatal mistakes.
As a dark knight, your armour is as dark as your intentions and hardened by the evil magic your minions provide. You scan the battlefield through the eyes of your Epic Dark Sugar Loaf helmet, noticing the quivering soldier who feels brave enough to stand against you. You begin to laugh, a sound that echoes inside your cold metal helm. This will be a very brief fight--if you can even call it that. The little man looks barely strong enough to hold up his hammer.
Epic Armoury’s Sugar Loaf Helmet is an enclosed helmet inspired by the traditional knight’s armour. Enclosing the entire head and offering maximum protection, this helmet is reinforced with rivets, rolled steel and a curved apex. Ventilation holes and a cotton inlay are added to the helmet to improve airflow and comfort. The eye-slits are wide and slim, increasing protection but impairing visibility.
Secure the Sugar Loaf helmet by tightening the leather strap beneath the chin, keeping the helmet in place. Made of 1 mm thick galvanized 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.
