Product information "Milanese Armour"

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 Milanese Armour, 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.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Milanese Armour is a simple low-fantasy piece of armour protecting the front of the torso and abdomen. The plate rests at the waist and is 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 knights in shining armour.

The Milanese Armour is embellished with a beveled plate on the chest to deflect attacks. It is fully usable with Epic Armoury’s Faulds and Tassets and well as other metal work 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.

Milanese Armour Bundle - Shiny

200763Armour for the Medieval Knight

Epic Armoury’s Complete Milanese Armour is a set of plate inspired by medieval armour and low-fantasy settings, polished to a high-gloss finish to appeal to the knights in shining armour. The set includes a breastplate, pauldrons, faulds and tassets, and couters--all that is left is the gambeson and clothing you desire to complete your LARP character’s look. Made of 1 mm thick mild steel and leather straps and fittings, this armour is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Available in sizes Medium, Large, and X-Large; and in colours Polished Steel and Epic Dark.

Milanese Armour Breastplate

Milanese Armour is a simple piece of armour protecting the front of the torso and abdomen. The plate rests at the waist and is sculpted to fit the body and add structural strength to the steel. The Milanese Armour is embellished with a beveled plate on the chest to deflect attacks.

Milanese Pauldrons

The Milanese Pauldrons are a pair of shoulderguards. The pauldrons rest on top of the shoulders and cover the upper arms and a large portion of the upper back. Both are attractively curved to add structural strength to the steel while maintaining flexibility thanks to the overlapping plates. Asymmetrical in design, the left pauldron is fitted with a vertical plate designed to protect the head from glancing blows. These pauldrons are embellished with a top beveled plate to further deflect attacks, as well as a chain pin to attach an insignia. Secure them by tying the canvas ties to the breastplate, and pulling the leather straps tight around the upper arms.

Faulds and Tassets

The Faulds and Tassets are designed to protect the waist, hip and upper thigh from attacks that might leave you off balance, wounded, and vulnerable while on the battlefield. This armour limits your weak spots without limiting your mobility thanks to the articulation of its bottom plate. They are secured with two adjustable leather straps over the shoulders and another around the waist.

Milanese Couter

The Milanese Couter is a pair of guards that protect the entire elbow--including the sides and a portion of the arms, thwarting even the most determined soldier. Its shape is intended to not only block blows, but to deflect them away safely. A curved shelf is riveted and welded along its edge, catching strikes that would otherwise slide onto the arms. One leather strap is used to keep each of the couters in place. Conveniently placed eyelets can be used to attach the couter firmly to a gambeson or shirt.
