Pauldrons “The Kingmaker”
XV century inspired shoulder protection
Small Kingmaker Spaulders
Simple 15th century inspired shoulder protection
If you’re looking for simple, stylish shoulder protection, you’ve come to the right place. The Small Kingmaker Spaulders are constructed from solid 1.5mm stainless steel, with tasteful brass accents which are sure to attract the envious gaze of friends and foes alike. During the design process we took inspiration from mid-15th-century shoulder armor, although we feel they would also be acceptable for earlier medieval period kits as well.
Created as an option for the Kingmaker Collection, these spaulders are made with no expense spared. Excellent materials, fine craftsmanship and careful finishing are all combined to create a high quality product that’s solid, attractive and sure to last you many battles. The bottle edge of the spaulders include fine touches – such as a roped edge and ornate brass border.
These will attach to your gambeson via a leather tab at the top, where you can easily pass lacing through. They will also stay in place on your arms with a robust leather strap complete with a hand cast brass buckle to make sure they don’t move too much as you swing your sword. Due to the stainless steel construction and solid brass rivets, these spaulders aren’t going to attract rust as much as mild steel, so don’t be scared to fight hard!
Part of being a noble is having the choice to look good in a way that best reflects your own taste, so we’ve made multiple sets of pauldrons for the Kingmaker Collection, each with a different style. Not a fan of our small pauldrons? Have a look at our Large Kingmaker Pauldrons, for extra coverage and protection. Don’t love the stainless steel? For a slightly more striking look, have a look at our Small Leather Covered Kingmaker Pauldrons, which have all of the charm of our small stainless steel ones with the added bonus of visually stunning veg-tanned leather, available in a variety of bright colours.

I have ordered your Kingmaker linen gambeson in XL and am interested in ordering the Kingmaker luxury pauldrons. How much should I increase the bicep measurement to compensate for the increased thickness?
Dear Neil, please simply take the measurement over the gambeson that you have or leave a comment to your order that we should take into account the Kingmaker gambeson.
