It is your duty as a paladin born of noble birth to provide for the less fortunate. Your family does not appreciate the needs of the poor, but you are a beacon of hope and a fighter for justice.
Dressed in your Splint Shoulders and matching armour, you ride into town with much food for all to share. They look to you as a hero...and to be quite honest, you really do look the part.
Epic Armoury’s Splint Shoulders are a set of two simple spaulders. The spaulders feature one solid metal plate with a contoured shape to turn and absorb strikes to the arm. The spaulders are fastened with leather straps around the biceps, as well as a cord at the shoulder which attaches to a breastplate or gambeson. Along the top of the shoulder they are embellished with a scalloped metal and black leather breaker.
The Splint Shoulders are striking in style and match exceptionally well with Epic Armoury’s Splint Bracers and Poleyns. 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.
- Plate armour became more popular as firearm technology became more prevalent during the 13th century
- Typically worn over a gambeson for comfort and safety
- Atop the pauldron a vertical plate was called a sword breaker, and was designed to catch and deflect blows before they could impact the head
The model is wearing Splint Bracers, Splint Shoulders, Hourglass Gauntlets and the Imperial Gambeson. The model wearing green is also wearing the green Corazzina Cuirass.
