For your clan, war is a permanent state of being. Just as you need meat to sustain you and armour to protect your leathery green skin, war keeps your thirst for chaos and violence sated.

Your clan gathers for the next battle. Against who? You do not know and you do not care. You heard the war horns and the drums, so there is nothing more to be done than to gather your armour and weapons. Rusted and well worn, your Orc Armour will suit your bloodthirsty needs well.

DETAILS

The Orc Armour Deal is an armour set that includes Epic Armoury’s Orc Armour torso, shoulder plates, arm guards, and leg protection. This armour deal is designed to fully gear your orc or barbarian costume at a lower cost. Each piece is made from mild steel with rolled edges and top-grain leather straps and fittings, while a rust-coloured finish is added to the top of each piece to give it a used, distressed appearance. This armour is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment while keeping the user safe and comfortable, and will last a long time with regular leather and metal armour care.

Available in sizes Medium and Large.

Orc Torso Armour

A cuirass made from leather and steel covering the front and back of the wearer's torso. The front of this breastplate circles the wearer’s neck, protecting the thorax before encasing the chest and rib cage. The steel breastplate is attached to a flexible, leather back plate using leather straps along the sides and shoulders. Decorative ridges run along the front to give it a reptilian appearance.

Shoulder Plates

A set of two shoulder guards. Atop the pauldron a sword breaker catches and deflects blows, protecting the head. The sword breaker is concave and shaped like a bat or dragon wing. Secure the shoulder plates by tightening the top leather strap onto the torso armour, adjusting so that the armour sits comfortably over the shoulder. Keep the armour from moving by securing an additional leather strap around the upper arm.

Arm Protection

Worn and rugged metal vambraces, embellished with ridges and cross-ridges. Secure vambraces to the forearm using two top-grain leather straps between the wrist and elbow.

Leg Protection

An essential for any person intending to experience the battlefield. These greaves fit over the shins, and can easily be worn over boots or padded leg gambesons. Secure these metal plates using two leather straps--one beneath the knee, and another above the ankle. They feature ridges and shaped edges to give them a reptilian appearance.

Epic Armoury metal works products should be treated with a wax or quality acid-free vegetable oil and kept in dry storage. Metal armour containing leather parts would needs a separate maintenance for the leather. Please read the "Leather Straps and Fittings" section below for leather cleaning and maintenance using leather-care products.

Degreasing and preparing your armour for use

When you open your armour, you may be overwhelmed by the smell of grease and oil. The oil has been applied to protect your armour during storage and transport. Use a degreasing product or mineral spirits and a dry cloth or paper towels to remove all the oil from your plate armour parts. Chainmail is a bit harder to remove all the oil from the links, but it can be done in much the same way. Wipe off as much as you can with a dry cloth, and with the remaining oil, you can remove the grease from the chainmail with mineral spirits or another solvent by spraying it on the links. You can also choose to fully submerge your chainmail in a degreasing product and use your hands to agitate the metal in the solution, this will completely remove all oil and grease from your links. After removal of the oil, make sure to dry your armour thoroughly. Strong, warm sunlight is great for drying your armour, but you can also use a hairdryer or a heat gun to speed up the process. Be careful not to overheat any leather parts when using a heat gun.

Cleaning

Moisture is the enemy of armour and chainmail. If your armour does get wet, it is important that you dry it thoroughly as soon as possible. After handling, wearing, or after six months of storage or display, all metal should be wiped with a clean cloth. Lightly oil the clean surface with a quality acid-free vegetable oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of the exposed metal. Allow the wax to dry for a couple of hours and then buff it lightly with a soft cloth.

Rust-Prevention and Removal

Store your armour is a dry place and check it every couple of months for signs of rust. If any is found, remove it by gently rubbing the affected spot with a mildly abrasive pad dipped in wax or quality acid-free vegetable oil. Epic Dark products are specially treated to resist rust, but should still be treated with oil and kept in dry storage.

Leather Straps and Fittings

Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.

You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
