We've been busy over the summer so haven't had time to create much new stuff. With the end of the summer though we've started building things for the new Empire game starting next year.

So without further ado:
Cylinder pouch - an alternative shaped pouch.
Lined engraved vambraces - vambraces with a little comfort and your faction symbol.
Lined engraved greaves - Matching greaves.
Chapter armour - Heavy leather body armour with attached skirt and upper arms.
Dragon Helm - Another wing'd helm with full face protection.
Stalwart Helm - Open face helm with a hint of Gondor.
Reinforced Bridle Gauntlets - A more tribal version of our bridle gauntlets
Slash Sleeve Doublet - How posh can you look.

There'll be lots of new stuff over the next couple of months so we'll keep you updated.

If you are at a loose end on Sat 3 November between 10 and 5 we will be at the LARP Awareness Party in Epping, Essex. Full details can be found on Facebook LARP Awareness Party

Cheers

Orc armour - a whole category in preparation for the Imperial orcs
Forest Coat - A beefed up version of the old leaf coat
Hairy bottle bag - Designed to disguise that 2 litre plastic bottle full of water(or rum and coke)

What ho people
Christmas over, decks cleared, we thought we'de better update you on all the new stuff that's been added to the site in the last month. So in no particular order

Throwing axe bandolier - strap three of our throwing axes to your chest for easy access.
Two coloured beret - Be seen, be noticed, be sent in first.
Bone Knife - Natural weapon for those unusual monsters the GM keeps putting in.
Shield Hero Belt - an alternate shape frontpiece for our 4 inch hero belt
Pistols - we've restocked our pistols and added one or two new ones
Weapons - another restock but with hafted as well as bladed.
Plumes - we've added the option for a horsehair plume on your helmet.
Woodsmans coat - light armour with a built in hood and pockets.
Ranger mask - simple facemask to help conceal the pink bits.
Special offer Vambraces - we've been playing with the laser and dye so there's a whole load of one off vambraces.

There's bound to be something we've forgotten so have a good look through the site. A number of pictures have been updated and most of the armour has had options added.

Thanks for looking
