KNOCK ON WOOD
Whether you are standing on the offensive or defensive side of a battle, you need protection, and what could be better than a shield the size of a door?
Epic Armoury’s Reinforced Tower Shield is a long rectangular shaped latex shield inspired by the scutum shield and the military tactics of Ancient Rome. It is one of our biggest shields with all laser cut and hand painted details to create a realistic wood grain and metal texture. The frontside shows off three transverse metal rims and a metallic-painted boss in the centre. If astonishing details like these aren’t enough, the sheer size of this shield will definitely impress your fellow warriors on the battlefield.
Featuring a reliable and comfortable punch-grip, feel confident that this hard EVA foam and latex shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance. Defend against your enemies and make this impressive Tower Shield part of your epic fighting style.

All latex-coated products need a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone, which can be purchased separately in the LARP Accessories section. Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone is an easy, spray-on application, 100% pure and acid-free making it safe to apply. We recommend using Maintenance Silicone on a regular basis. It maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.
Store your latex shield in a cool, dry environment. Use a simple sheet or towel lining to prevent it from touching a plastic or rubber surface to prevent your shield from adhering to other products.
