You are laughing too loud. You realize it must be scaring your enemy, because no one wants to face you on the frontline anymore. They think you are crazed. Maybe you are, because the adrenaline of being in a battle has left you feeling drunk with exhilaration.

If no one will come to you, it's time to bring the fight to them! One poor soldier desperately strikes at you and you feel the thud of his sword against your Viking Leg Protection, but it hardly makes a scratch. You see the terror in his eyes as your laugh fills the field and you bring the strength of your axe down upon him.

You are Raynor Ironshood. Let them fear you. Let them all fear you.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Viking Leg Protection is a set of greaves inspired by ancient splint armour. At first glance, the Viking Leg Protection may appear fragile, but don't let that fool you! These greaves can be worn over leather or clothing, and the vertical steel strips offer excellent protection of your shins without encumbering you or hindering your mobility.

Three leather straps are used to keep each of the Viking Leg Protection greaves in place. Made of 1 mm mild galvanized steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, these armour pieces are built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Available in One Size.

HISTORY
