There is a roar from the stands as you enter the arena, your Musculata gleaming in the sunlight. You wave your sword high, accepting the praise and cheers from your fans. You are a gladiator of much renown here, after all.

The crowd’s roar never ebbs, but grows as you turn to face your first opponent. They have released a great beast from its cage, and with its massive jaws it now comes charging straight towards you.


Epic Armoury’s Gold Musculata cuirass is a historical piece of armour inspired by Greek and Roman armour popular in the 5th and 4th centuries BC. The Musculata protects the torso and abdomen and is shaped to mimic the idealized human physique. Also known as the heroic cuirass, this armour rests at the hips and has distinctively rolled edges. Designed to fit the body comfortably, this beautifully sculpted piece has been specially coated and polished to a matte bronze finish to appeal to the ancient Romans and Greeks.

The Musculata includes a breastplate, backplate, and shoulder guards. Made of 1 mm thick mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Available in size M/L.

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.
