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 RFB Round Shield 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 shield to catch the force. Your shield holds, buying time while your friends finally come to your aid.
Epic Armoury’s Uncoated RFB Round Shield is a versatile round latex shield inspired by skilled pre-10th century soldiers. This 50 cm round shield has a neutral design befitting many character types, sculpted to look rimmed with metal and studs. While the design is simple, this Round Shield is timeless and classic, and is being sold without colours or latex coating for your do-it-yourself project. It arrives matte, uncoloured, and undecorated, so that you might add whatever detailing you wish!
Wear this RFB Round Shield left-handed with the use of two canvas arm straps on the back, and feel confident that this hard EVA foam shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance.
Directions for use:
Paint the shield using paint specifically designed for EVA foam. When the paint is completely dry, coat the shield using clear latex. Dip the shield or apply using a brush to create a very thin layer. Clear latex is also available in our shop.
- Made from durable closed cell foam that does not shred
- High safety, approved by the top organizations
All latex-coated weapons need a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone, which can be purchased separately in the LARP Accessories section. Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone is an easy, spray-on application, 100% pure and acid-free making it safe to apply. We recommend using Maintenance Silicone on a regular basis. It maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.
Store your latex weapons flat or on its pommel--NEVER on its tip. Use a simple sheet or towel lining to prevent it from touching a plastic or rubber surface to prevent your weapon from adhering to other products. Keep your weapons in a cool, dry environment.
