As the Deathknight strode forward, he was met by a human warrior that towered over it at the crest of the hill, grim determination on its face.
"I am Bosrick, Champion of the Footmen of this city!" He bellowed as he smacked his mace against his shield.
"You are about to be worm food." the Deathknight grunted, the boredom writ upon his face.
Taking inspiration from the semi-curved kite shaped shields used by the Normans of the early Middle Ages, the Maurauder Kite Shield works just as well for a goblin invader or a brutal orc from a high fantasy realm as it would for a battleworn European knight from the ninth century or a pillaging Viking.
Crafted from durable closed cell foam and coated with latex, this shield is more than ready for LARP battle. Sculpted and hand-painted with realistic details like scratches and notches, this shield features a dark matte metallic finish and metallic trim with rivets. A stylized cross appears at the center. Maintain your hold on this savage shield with the tri-position grip and adjustable buckle straps found on the inner side.
Designed to be the maximum allowable size under the Swordcraft rules set, this shield has the Epic Armoury tri-position grip to allow you to hold it no matter what style of shield bearer you need to be.
