You stand at attention outside the gates of your enemy’s fortress, standing alongside other footmen. Inside, their people are filled with terror, deafened by your army’s trumpets and noise. Arrows rain down and you and your fellow soldiers form a barrier with your enormous Footman Tower Shields.
There is nothing that can stop you. The design of your shield allows you to stand in close formation, advancing on their defenders and dispatching them quickly.
Almost all LARP weapons are made from a foam that is then covered in a plasticised acrylic-latex paint. If not maintained, this paint eventually dries out and can flake or crack. To avoid, a silicon outer coat is applied to all weapons but is slowly worn off as the weapon strikes other weapons, shields and armour. Maintenance spray ensures your weapons are kept in the best condition possible by reinforcing this silicon layer and keeping the PAX paint underneath it moist and supple. It should be applied after every combat, or at least once a month.
Available in 150ml or 400ml spray packs, and a 250ml pump pack.
A simple leather loop to keep your sword at your side.
Just remember to get one on each side or your pants are going to feel oddly unbalanced in a way that can't be accounted for when bragging at the tavern bar.
One of your greatest lessons was learning never to be caught, and it is the person who is always moving who survives. You travel from tavern to barn to abandoned shack, never growing attached or creating ties. You are the wandering adventurer.
On your travels you keep your weapon close by, secure inside your Sword Holder. Along with your armour and your skill, you expect that you may yet live to be a wisened old veteran. You certainly have the survival instinct.
Epic Armoury’s Sword Holder is a leather frog designed to keep your weapon handy and angled to prevent being entangled during battle. Embellished with a pointed cut, this frog is 13 cm long, open at both ends, and will accommodate a weapon up to 5 cm in diameter. Soft split-leather has been added to the inside of the hoop to protect your weapon, also providing just enough resistance to keep your weapon from falling out without making it difficult to withdraw.
Match this Sword Holder with any character you wish to equip by securing the holder to your belt through the 7 cm belt loop. Made from vegetable-tanned full-grain leather and stitched around the edges, this weapon holder is built to keep its shape and withstand the abuse of a LARP with regular leather care.
The Right Hand Sword Holder is designed to be used by a right-handed player (sits on left-side).
The Left Hand Sword Holder is designed to be used by a left-handed player (sits on right-side).
Available in colours Black and Brown.
