Wood Buckler (403038)
Wood Buckler (IF-403038)
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 Wood Buckler 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 Steel Buckler to catch the force. Your small shield holds, buying time while your friends finally come to your aid.
Epic Armoury's Wood Buckler is a small, versatile round shield, inspired by skilled swordsmen through history. This 40 cm buckler has a neutral design befitting many character types, sculpted and painted to look like a wooden shield, reinforced with a round shield boss in the center.
Use this Wood Buckler left- or right-handed with the split-leather wrapped punch grip hidden behind the shield boss. The 5.5"/14 cm handle is 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.
Originally developed for Bucellarii, personal armies of rich landowners in the late Roman Empire
Particularly popular with light-footed fighters during the Renaissance and Baroque eras
Used the Shield Boss--the round, convex piece of material at the centre of the shield--to deflect blows
After cleaning and when dry, apply a coat of silicon spray to protect the paint finish on the shield; available from any home improvement store. Spray it onto the latex surfaces, wipe off the excess, and come back in 30 minutes. This will help to maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevent it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.
Store your shield in a cool, dry environment, and keep your it flat. Wrap the shield in a simple sheet or a towel to prevent it from touching other latex LARP weapons, any plastic or rubber surfaces, or another latex surface, to prevent your shield from adhering to other products.
