When the Orcs came to the lands of men they found easy prey. Soft on the outside, squishy and crunchy on the in.
Then men learnt the ways of steel and what the orcs had in sheer strength the men could ward off with plates of metal. In time, the tables were turned and men beat back the orcs...
... until Gruksh captured a blacksmith and tortured the secrets of smithing from him.
For your clan, war is a permanent state of being. Just as you need meat to sustain you and armour to protect your leathery green skin, war keeps your thirst for chaos and violence sated.
Your clan gathers for the next battle. Against who? You do not know and you do not care. You heard the war horns and the drums, so there is nothing more to be done than to gather your armour and weapons. Rusted and well worn, your Orc Armour will suit your bloodthirsty needs well.
The Orc Armour Deal is an armour set that includes Epic Armoury’s Orc Armour torso, shoulder plates, arm guards, and leg protection. This armour deal is designed to fully gear your orc or barbarian costume at a lower cost. Each piece is made from mild steel with rolled edges and top-grain leather straps and fittings, while a rust-coloured finish is added to the top of each piece to give it a used, distressed appearance. This armour is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment while keeping the user safe and comfortable, and will last a long time with regular leather and metal armour care.
Orc Torso Armour
A cuirass made from leather and steel covering the front and back of the wearer's torso. The front of this breastplate circles the wearer’s neck, protecting the thorax before encasing the chest and rib cage. The steel breastplate is attached to a flexible, leather back plate using leather straps along the sides and shoulders. Decorative ridges run along the front to give it a reptilian appearance.
A set of two shoulder guards. Atop the pauldron a sword breaker catches and deflects blows, protecting the head. The sword breaker is concave and shaped like a bat or dragon wing. Secure the shoulder plates by tightening the top leather strap onto the torso armour, adjusting so that the armour sits comfortably over the shoulder. Keep the armour from moving by securing an additional leather strap around the upper arm.
Worn and rugged metal vambraces, embellished with ridges and cross-ridges. Secure vambraces to the forearm using two top-grain leather straps between the wrist and elbow.
An essential for any person intending to experience the battlefield. These greaves fit over the shins, and can easily be worn over boots or padded leg gambesons. Secure these metal plates using two leather straps--one beneath the knee, and another above the ankle. They feature ridges and shaped edges to give them a reptilian appearance.
- Earliest references to orcs are found in Old English and Anglo-Saxon sources, such as in Beowulf and in 16th century Italian folktales
- Historically designed with sculpted ridges to provide reinforced protection and to deflect attacks on a chaotic battlefield
