18 Gauge Steel

Fully articulated

Wooden base and stand included

Catalog Description: A fully articulated and wearable full-harness in the German"Gothic"style of the late 15th century. Armour of this type is generally sleeker fitting and less rounded than"Milanese"armour of the same period with many parts terminating into a point giving the armour a"spiky"appearance. The ridged radiating patterns embossed on the breastplate cuisses (thigh guards) and the pauldrons (shoulder guards) and the fluted gauntlets are also typical features of armour made in southern Germany during this period. The ridges and fluting are not only aesthetically pleasing but were believed to increase strength and resistance to blows without adding extra weight. The combination of a sallet helm and bevor again typical of the Gothic style would have provided excellent protection for the head and throat but would have limited the field of vision of the wearer.

This armor comes with:
1 Wooden display stand
1 Sallet Helmet and 1 Bevor 14G Large
1 Breastplate and 1 Backplate w/lames 18G
2 Pauldrons (shoulder guards) 18G
2 Revebrace (upper arms) 18G
2 Vambrace (forearms) 18G
2 Gauntlets (hands) 18G
2 Cuisses (thigh guards) 18G
2 Poleyn (knee caps) 18G
2 Greaves (shin guards) 18G
2 Sabatons (foot guard) 18G
