Fantasy theme gave a significant push for hobbys in one way or another connected with fencing and armor developing. Of course we can not ingnore this direction. In general, if you want to collect the most realistic fantasy armor - we are at your service! Especially since our armor has a nice design and you can create the necessary image with it.
Part of our armor elements are also suitable for HEMA. But in the future we plan to develop mittens, elbows, knees, etc specially for this direction. Part of our armor elements are also suitable for HEMA. But in the future we plan to develop specially for this discipline mittens, elbows, knees, etc. This direction of fencing is based on medieval fencing books (training books) and special very flexible and light swords are used here.
In fighting stylization, we first of all provide protection and convenience. When developing such armor, we combine the existing elements and parts of the medieval armor existing separately, but in close regions and time frames.
In historical reconstruction, we try to maximally repeat the geometry of the example artifact. The difficulty is that often both the example and the artifact are located far from us. Therefore, such work requires considerable skill.
Before you choose a protective kit, you need to decide whether you are engaged in living history or full contact medieval battle.
If the first you choose the protection and defense of the sport – that’s a couple of tips.
1. Try to immediately determine in which categories you will participate.
In 1on1 tournaments, you can use the most lightweight armor. After all, the enemy all the time in front of you, and from the back you will not hit. The massive battles you will often attack several opponents with different sides. You should think about protecting the base of the neck, shoulder blades, collarbones and coccyx.
With what weapon you leave in a massive fights.
With a one-handed weapon, you most likely will use a shield. This means that under it you do not need a full-fledged bracer and mitten. With a two-handed weapon better have a good hand protection. Since you will often block the blows.
Select a region and a time which will be to style your armor.
Though this sport is better to have the armor as close as possible to the reconstruction. So you will be allowed on the top tournaments.
