You are a Rahk of the Black Ice Essence, a physical manifestation of perfection and complete unification. You march in unison and you fight in unison with all the soldiers and the officers of your unit. Together you are efficient.
The mortal races will all become assimilated in time. When everyone becomes an aspect of your Essence, the world will finally be perfect.
Epic Armoury’s Black Gauntlets are an essential for any person wishing to keep their hands protected while in battle. Consisting of articulated plating, these gauntlets protect the fingers, knuckles, wrists, and forearms without sacrificing mobility. With a polished steel and black paint finish, these gauntlets have an austere style ideally suited for a dark and serious character with ill-intention. While specifically designed for ConQuest’s Non-Player Character group, the Black Ice, feel free to use this armour to fit your own character’s design.
Slide your arm through the leather brace and fingers into the attached black suede glove, securing tightly with the additional leather strap over the forearm to keep these gauntlets in place. Made of 1 mm thick mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, these armour pieces are built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Epic Armoury metal works products should still be treated with oil and kept in dry storage. All our metal armours contain leather parts that need regular maintenance using leather-care products to keep the leather from drying out.
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 machine or mineral oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of 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 paste wax, oil, or water-displacing liquid.
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.
