Chainmail has become popular on the battlefield, protecting soldiers from sharp blades and arrows. But you are clever. A soldier in chainmail has every reason to fear you, because metal ring armour will do nothing against the blunt force of your Footman’s Mace.
While you might be one of the thousands of soldiers on the field, you are still considered a skilled threat with the help of such a mighty weapon.
Epic Armoury’s Footman’s Mace is a low-fantasy latex weapon designed to intimidate armoured knights on the battlefield. The mace is 80 cm with a small 11 cm long flanged head designed to penetrate chainmail and plate alike. Each of the six flanges is 8 cm long and V-shaped, realistically sculpted to appear riveted. The haft is hexagonal with sculpted and handpainted iron bands to serve as optional grips and structural support. Top-grain leather wraps around the 18 cm handle, giving this mace an exceptionally durable grip.
Made from durable closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.
- Flange would have been designed to penetrate armour
