Centurion Gaius Crastinus of the Legion X Equestris was strolling slowly between the ranks of legionnaries lined for the upcoming battle. His step was measured and calm despite the tense atmosphere. He was the Primus Pilus, the most senior and respected soldier of the whole 10th Legion. He was first amongst the centurions, leader of the first cohort of the most loyal and pretigious legion fielded by Julius Ceasar. As the army was preparing for the final clash against Pompey Magnus' forces, Crastinus was making peace with his own fate. The general had asked from him the ultimate proof of his unwavering service. Him whom fought alongside Ceasar against the rebel Gauls, him whom saw the victory at Alesia, him whom followed through every campaigns up to this messy civil war, him whom received the honor to serve in the Legio X as the legion's first centurion... he made Ceasar a solemn promise :
"Today, general, I shall earn your gratitude whether I live or die"
Wearing his most prestigious armor, a luxurious muscle cuirass as the ones worn by the most renowned officers of Rome's armies, Crastinus knew deep inside that the gods of the underworld would have his life before sunset. He intented to let Pluto have his sacrifice, but he would not relinquish his life before his general received the victory he promised him. Crastinus wouldn't retreat, he wouldn't fall back, never again. He intended to fight, gladius in hand, right on the first line, surrounded by his brave and loyal legionnaries of the 10th Legion. If it was how he would meet his end, he would be glad to die in service of the cause.

Dark Elf Helmet
Ecstatic chaos was spreading around the city streets while the slaves soldiers stormed the underground mansion, dragging disgraced nobles and their servants in the open to be beaten and humiliated by the mod. Kelezan was taking a sadistic pleasure while executing his matron's orders, house Sepsebris's arrogance had been triggering murder intents in his twisted mind for decades. Protected by his hybrid leather and chitin armor, the drow captain was barely scratched during the assault. This was a disappointment for the dark elf warrior, that was fueled as well by the pain he inflicted than the one he received. Slowly reloading his crossbow, Kelezan prepared himself to finish his mission, his crimson eyes looked on the three Sepsebris survivors that just had been dragged at his feet. What a coincidence, he had precisely three bolts left.
Made of dyed vegetable leather cut with complex swirl patterns, this fantastic helmet presents a purple coloration as unique as it is sinister. It is the perfect headpiece for any dark elf, mindflayer, illithid, shadow warrior, or dark cultist set in LARP.

In ancient times where heroes fought superhuman creatures and demigods, an army was finally created to ensure the survival of humanity. These soldiers wore flexible and fast armor to be effective on many battles. One of these battles inspired strategists in future years: the Battle of Himarak. This village was located in a valley that allowed passage to the inland of the country. The invaders, redundant, attacked the small garrison with confidence up. To counter this situation, the warriors thought to operate in small groups perfectly coordinated by combat whistle sounds. With accurate simultaneous attacks and good mobility, the enemy believed to be in a shorthanded and retreated after heavy losses.
This greco-roman helm is inspired by the days of Antiquity. The piece is suitable for LARP: lightweight and comfortable for fighting, it allows good vision and mobility. Les Artisans d'Azure revisits here one of the old models used by several LARP troops. Dyeing is carried out by hand in our workshop, so small variations are possible.
