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 Mercenary Torso Plate is a cuirass made from leather and steel covering the front and back of the wearer's torso. The front of this breastplate circles the wearer's neck in an inverted U-shape, with the chest apex protecting the thorax before sloping around the ribcage to protect under the arms. The lower edge of the breast plate is slightly rounded, allowing it to fit around the crests of the hips and still cover the vulnerable pelvis. The steel plate is fitted on a brown leather suit, which straps to the back leather plate at the shoulders and the sides.

The Mercenary Torso Plate is 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 size Medium.
