Epic Armourys Roman Shield is a tower shield inspired by the formidable scutum of Ancient Rome. Hexagonally shaped with an elongated base, this 120 cm long shield features a decorated face that has been carved and hand painted to look like golden textured wings on a deep red background. At the centre sits a large shield boss designed to deflect weapons. The edge is rimmed with a brass coloured band with studs.
Wear this Roman Shield left or right-handed with the use of six versatile leather arm straps on the back, allowing for different fight styles and stances. Feel confident that this hard EVA foam and latex shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance.
All latex-coated shields need a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone which can be purchased separately. 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-coats flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.
Store your latex shields flat –NEVER on the tip (if applicable). 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 shield in a cool, dry environment.
