Black Knights Shield
The Blackguard Knights stood in fearsome formation at the top of the hill, waiting for the spawn of Chaos to make their way to their position. They knew nothing but courage as their defences were perfect.
Shadowed in Evil
Epic Armoury’s Black Knight Shield is a semi-curved shield inspired by the transitional heater shields of 12th century Western Europe. Its design can be used for knights or soldiers alike, just so long as they are fighting for darkness and the triumph of evil! It is handpainted with a glossy black finish and tarnished metal rim, after all. We think it’s perfect for the angsty heart of a fallen paladin.
While the design is simple, this Black Knight Shield is timeless and classic, and can fit almost any LARP character you might play. Wear this shield left- or right-handed with the use of six canvas arm straps--or enarmes--on the back, secured through canvas attached to hard EVA foam for a reliable and comfortable grip. Its slight convex shape will help in combat, and it’s 90 cm long for great protection without being too unwieldy. Keep your shield in great condition with regular latex maintenance.
The Black Knight Shield is Epic Armoury's offering for those that need a large shield, but also want to have a surface to customise to their team's or character's exacting requirements.
A More Versatile Shield
- Similar to a kite shield, but with a flattened top and a shorter length designed for use on horse or foot
- Could be considered a heater shield, designed in Western Europe to replace the kite shield with a version that was more versatile and could be used by anyone
- Traditionally made from thin, non-splintering wood overlaid with leather--but could also be braced or made of metal
