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 Warrior Helmet, 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

The Epic Armoury Warrior Helm is a Spangenhelm made from thick full-grain leather that protects the head, back of the neck, and the front of the face. Four leather plates are sewn together to form this skull cap, reinforced by heavy leather straps forming a cross across the apex of the skull. To add additional structure, a heavy leather strap is secured around the brim and is attached to an elongated diamond-shaped nose guard that protects the center of the face.

The Warrior Helmet also features a stiff leather neck-guard to protect against waylay attacks, and soft split-leather padding on the inside. Embellished with a wing-like decoration above the eyes, this helmet is designed to match most of Epic Armoury’s other armours and clothing, and with its durable leather stitching it is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather care.

Available in sizes Medium and Large.
