FOR THE KING!
As a top-trained soldier in the King’s Guard you need the finest of armour in order to stand proud by His Majesty’s throne. Epic Armoury’s Royal Soldier Chainmail is a flexible mail armour shirt made from flat riveted linked steel rings. Each butted ring interlocks with four other rings in a 4-in-1 design, while the armpits are reinforced with riveted rings designed to cope with additional stress. The mail covers the body from the shoulder to the thighs, and has short sleeves protecting the upper arm. All edges are leather bound but the bottom one, and the shirt opens up in front with six brass-buckled leather straps allowing you to slip into your mail much easier, than if you had to slide it over your head. Expect this armour to last a long time as reenactment gear with proper leather and metal care.
The Royal Soldier Chainmail is perfect for medieval soldiers and sergeants, as well as knights. Wear it over one of our gambesons for the most comfort and authentic wear. Pair this armour with additional Epic Armoury metal works and clothing to fit your character’s needs.
