The Ready for Battle Round shield is a great shield for those starting out. Thick foam provides plenty of durability and colour choices allow for easy team identification
The monstrous undead with a hammer the size of your head has you in his sights, and you’ve found yourself standing without an ally. Your usual tactic involves skirting around the battle, picking your fights strategically. Now there is no time.
You duck beneath the first blow, keeping your RFB Round Shield between the hammer and your soft body. You’re faster than the rotting monstrosity, but in your desperation you trip and roll. Again the hammer falls, and you raise up your shield to catch the force. Your shield holds, buying time while your friends finally come to your aid.
Epic Armoury’s RFB Round Shield is a versatile round latex shield inspired by skilled pre-10th century soldiers. This 50 cm round shield has a neutral design befitting many character types, sculpted to look rimmed with studded iron. Hand painted black and red, it mimics a traditional heraldry design.
Wear this RFB Round Shield left-handed with the use of two canvas arm straps on the back, secured through hard EVA foam for a reliable and solid grip made to last. Feel confident that this latex shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance.
- Round wooden style was predominantly used in the early European Middle Ages using light, non-splintering wood such as linden, fir, alder or poplar
- Iron rim was sometimes used as a way to reinforce the shield
