The air cuts through your armour, chilling you down to your bones. Tonight there is rumor that the Wild Hunt rides, and while you know the superstitions and seem an unlikely challenger to the fae--you stand true to your post.
As a guard, you are dressed in uniform. From your Guardsman Helmet to your clearly marked tabard, it is your duty to stay and fight whatever may come...no matter the number or skill of your enemy.
Epic Armoury’s Guardsman Helmet is a steel helmet inspired by German sallet helmets of the 15th century. The Guardsman Helmet’s brim is broad and steeply sloped in order to protect the head and face from weapons. Two eye holes in the brim allow for protected vision. Wear this helmet with a bevor for additional neck and face protection.
Secure the Guardsman Helmet by tightening the leather strap beneath the chin, keeping the helmet in place. Made of 1 mm thick galvanized 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.
- Similar in shape to a German sallet or an infantry Kettle Hat
- Provided the added benefit of protecting the eyes from sunlight
- Design was eventually replaced with the close helm and burgonet
