Gustav large set burnished
One could call this set "simple", but this would hardly do it justice. A better way to describe it would be "pragmatic" – it dispenses with most ornamentational elements like rivets and additional grooves for a clean and straight look. Most "down-to-earth" character concepts will find a good match if an armour is needed.
The breastplate is ornamented with round-headed rivets and has a shaped plate added to the upper part, setting it off as the jewel of the armour set. As with a half-cuirass, the breastplate is fastened by using two leather straps; there is no backplate.
The collar has no ornamentation at all and is deliberately kept plain so as to contrast the breastplate. It's size can be adjusted, and it is closed by means of a buckle and strap on the side.
The three flexible metal parts on the shoulder allow great mobility and barely interfere with arm movement in battle. The swung lines add another eyecatcher to this armour set
The arm guards consist of six flexibly connected segments. The plain rondels attached to the couters further stress the armour's functional character. They can be fixed to the spaulders by connecting the buckle with the corresponding straps.
The same rondels are found on the knee armour. Thus, repeating elements give the armour suit a consistent appearance. Comprised of five flexible segments, the leg armour is built to offer just as much mobility as the arm guards. They end just underneath the knee; however, the wearer can adjust the wearing height individually.
This armour set boasts an impressive price-performance-ratio. It constitutes an all but complete solid plate armour suit. The lower body protection may be reinforced by combining it with our "Markward" tassets and a "Richard" chainmail skirt. A helmet from our broad product range will round of the armour set.
We recommend wearing a gambeson underneath the armour and upgrading it with a chainmail shirt.
