Armor Set “Mythical Beasts”
XIV-XV Inspired Articulated Etched Armor
Full Armor Set “Mythical Beasts”
XIV-XV Century Inspired Articulated Etched Armor
The armor in this collection is transitional in nature, inspired by shapes and designs found at the end of the XIV century and start of the XV. All of the joints are smoothly articulated, consisting of a series of smaller plates that allow you to move easily and efficiently. The base design for this armor is actually one of our oldest and most-loved creations, improved with years of experience to be new and exciting. We have improved this set by adding additional flexibility, removable rondels for added customization and a fantastic new etching pattern.
This is the full set of armor, including the cuisses, arm harness, and pauldrons. This means that you will be completely covered from mid-calf up to your hips, and from your wrist up to your neck. The leg harness can be suspended with the help of an arming belt or pourpoint, and the arms and shoulders are easily tied to your arming garment. Everything is optimized for heavier format fighting such as SCA, but they are all perfectly fine for LARP, too.
The arm harness is spectacularly classic, taking some of the best design aspects from western style medieval armor. They begin at the wrist in a full-wrap bracer, meaning the underside of your arm is also protected. They close on the inside with the help of a buckle, opening on a hinge on the outside of your arm. From the bracer there are two smaller articulated lames that attach it to the robust elbow cop, which then connects to the rerebrace which is not entirely enclosed, allowing for a bit more breathing room. The inside of your arm is protected by a round rondel.
The pauldrons start at the top of your shoulder and stop at your bicep, just slightly overlapping with the rerebrace of the arms. They begin with a lame containing two holes that make it easy to lace it onto your gambeson. From there, they consist of a main curved plate to protect your shoulders, followed by 3 more lames that cover your upper arms. They are all smoothly articulated and connected with a series of leather and rivets on the inside. A strap at the bottom allows you to secure it around your arm. From the main piece of shoulder armor, a leather strap extends with a removable rondel on the end to protect your armpit area.
The leg harness is modeled after one of our most popular leg harnesses but has been made even better with a bit of extra articulation. An initial plate at the top of the thigh is connected to the main leg plate – this is the part that adds so much flexibility. Like the arms, they contain buckles on the inside and hinges on the outside, meaning your leather straps will not be cut by stray swords. The top is connected to the knee with the help of two more lames. The knee cop is thick and robust and is accented with a rondel to protect you from wrap shots around to your inner knee. The leg harness extends below the knee with a few more lames, giving a little bit of extra protection. They look great with knee-high boots!
The most magnificent part of this armor is, of course, the etching. ArmStreet has become well known for our high quality, ornate etching, which is designed in-house by our talented team of artists who are inspired by history and modern design. This set features skulls and shapes inspired by stories and manuscripts, as well as the beasts that feature in them. The beasts can be found on the rondels of the collection, which can be swapped out and changed around with a screw, depending on which monster you feel like representing that day. Who knows – maybe you want to wear a different monster on each limb! This is the first set of armor that features this new technology, so we hope that you enjoy the opportunities that it brings.
This armor is constructed from high-quality materials so you can rest easy knowing that it will stand the test of time. Stainless steel is used to make it more rust resistant, so you can spend less time cleaning your armor and more time fighting and relaxing. The leather straps are all robust, and all of the buckles are beautiful medieval buckles to keep the theme. All of the rivets are solid rivets peened over washers, and the edges of all of the armor are carefully finished.
