As the seasons have unfolded into 2017, and 2018, we’ve noticed something quite cool, how many new products and quirky new items are being developed in the larp world! So we thought we’d pick a few out and talk about the interesting new developments.
As a whole, a huge swathe of LARP platemail is mass produced abroad in countries like Pakistan and India, however, progress there has mean’t that the LARP kit in the form of armour is upping its game and improving, which is pretty awesome!
The Witch Hunter Leather hat as shown, is loosely based on the inquisitorial style of Warhammer (Awesome aye!) and rather than a standard hat, they’ve added some cool additions to it (like the buckles and belt).
One of my favourites, the Rogue Platemail piece, I absolutely love this, with a combination of Leather with metal studded plate pieces, it looks like something straight out of Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones, instead of standard boring plate, this really encompasses a range of looks, and would even work well for people Cosplaying people from For Honour, or even Witcher based stuff 🙂 generally speaking its a wonderful piece, and really shows the efforts people are making to not keep within the standard template of normal LARP products.
Of course, we have to show this again, what a beautiful piece, Witcher much? The design is epic, not much more else we can say!
Part two to come later, got any that you are particularly fond of? Post them below, and tell us why!
That’s right, we are expanding on our viking shield range and reenactment shields, currently our reenactment range has felt a little lack luster, so to build this up, we have around near to 100 different shields going up on the site, ranging from medieval bucklers, to Roman Shields, Greek style 300 shields to more historical ones, and even viking and norman shields.
This is ideal for things like decking out a banqueting hall, or for living history displays, many of which are ideal for reenactment and HEMA / martial arts.
Wanting to check them out? Well you can see our expanding range here – http://www.thevikingstore.co.uk/reenactment-shields-245-c.asp
Some of the Norman ones are fantastic, and of course we’ve expanded on our shield bosses as well!
Feel our website is missing essential products? Or want something custom made, get in touch!
As an example of some of the fantastic works we can do, it ranges from your stereotypical LARP shield construction, to gorgeous display wooden shields for ceremonies and weddings, all the way up to battle ready viking age shields, of varying authentic standards.

Wow! Well its been thirty years this year, since Jomsborg started as a small group of young adventurers in the UK, way back when the viking reenactment scene was young.. Now look at what has happened, everything from music to culture, to tv, Viking culture has exploaded into pop culture as the hip new thing everything wants to be a part of.
Considering the Reenactment scene of viking combat has gone from a handful of warriors back in the 80’s, to fostering battles of 700+ around the world, it looks like rough guesstimations of the scene is its pretty much shot up over 1,000% since its humble beginnings.
So, get involved and check it out! If you are looking for more info, please check out the following sites.
