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.
Your armour is as dark as your intentions, hardened by the evil magic your subjects provide. Your Bazuband gauntlets allow you to withdraw your sword with ease, sizing up the quivering soldier who feels brave enough to stand against you. You begin to laugh. 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 Bazuband is an effective and elegant piece of armour designed to protect your forearms. The Bazuband is a compromise between the discomfort of gauntlets and the mobility of demi-gauntlets, providing comfort and the freedom of movement you desire. Fastened to a comfortable leather glove, these robust steel plates efficiently protect the back of your hand, thumb, and underarm while strong chainmail connect the plates to ensure unbridled–but protected–movement.
The Bazuband 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.
