Product information "Dark Back Plate"

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 Dark Warrior 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.


Epic Armoury’s Dark Warrior Backplate is a low-fantasy piece of armour that matches Epic Armoury’s Dark Warrior and Dark Drake Breastplates, protecting the back and spine. Sculpted to fit the body and add structural strength to the steel, this steel riveted piece has been treated with Epic Armoury's Epic Dark Metal coat to give the armour a rugged, antique finish. At the lower rim, the plate has a small flange to deflect blows away from the lower part of the body.

The Dark Warrior Backplate is neutral in style and fully usable with other Epic Armoury metal products, giving you the freedom to customize your character’s costume. 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.


  • Historically designed with sculpted ridges and overlapping plates to provide reinforced protection and to deflect attacks on a chaotic battlefield
  • Plate armour became more popular as firearm technology became more prevalent during the 13th century
