You look upon your leading officer as he makes his way down the line of your fellow soldiers. Your fate and the fate of your entire unit is dependent on this veteran’s word, and you find yourself relieved not to shoulder such a heavy burden.
“We must fight!” your officer shouts for all to hear. You adjust your Warrior Breastplate, double checking the buckles as you listen to him continue. “For our homes and for our families, we will fight until we can fight no more!” With a resounding cheer, your fellow soldiers ready themselves for the charge. You withdraw your weapon, eager and afraid all at once.
The battle has begun.
Epic Armoury’s Warrior Breastplate is a simple low-fantasy piece of armour protecting the front of the torso and abdomen. The plate rests at the hips and has a V-shaped flange–or sword turner–that deflects blows from the weak spot where torso and leg armour fit together. Sculpted to fit the body and add structural strength to the steel, this steel riveted piece has been polished to a high-gloss finish to appeal to the elven and human knights in shining armour.
The Warrior Breastplate is neutral in style and fully usable with all Epic Armoury backplates. Wear it alone or with the backplate of your choice to customize your character’s costume and make it your own. 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 sizes Small, Medium and Large.
- Historically designed with a rounded shape to disperse the force of attacks on a chaotic battlefield
- Plate armour became more popular as firearm technology became more prevalent during the 13th century
