You stride forward into the sunlight, your Merc Armour gleaming. Climbing up a small hill to see what lies ahead, you discover there is a long journey still yet to come.
This is the price you pay for your freedom. Fight for who you want and for whatever cause you deem worthy; yet never know what it means to have a place to rest your head. Instead you travel, following money, trade, and war. But at least one thing is for certain:
You are the famous mercenary Juno, and no one shall ever own you.
Epic Armoury’s Polished Merc Light Armour is a cuirass made from leather and steel covering the front of the wearer’s torso. The front of this breastplate circles the wearer’s neck, sloping around the rib cage to protect under the arms. The lower edge of the breastplate rests over the sternum, curved to protect bone while providing lots of flexibility for the waist. The steel plate is fitted onto brown leather straps, attached to a large steel ring behind the shoulderblades. This design allows for the most maneuverability on varied body shapes and torso lengths.
The Merc Light Armour is designed to be easily worn and removed. The shoulder straps are secured to the breastplate using sturdy steel pins, so no apprentice is required! Match this armour with other Epic Armoury metal products and 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.
Available in size Small/Medium and Large/X-Large; and in a Polished or Epic Dark finish.
