Armour of the XIV century in Churburg style

EAFP-06/1

After the fall of the Roman Empire and the emergence of barbarian tribes, many skills and techniques of the period of antiquity were lost. One of these was the production of armour. Through the path of attempts and failings, creation of various kinds of armour in Europe came back to full-plate armour.

The presented piece is from the castle of Churburg (South Tyrol in the Norh of Italy) and it belongs to the end of XIV century. During this time on the territory of modern Italy the armour maters start to produce armour of full-plate shells (they would be given the name of Milanese type).

This piece of Churburg armour does not yet cover entire body of a warrior. Head, chest, stomach and arms are covered only. Grand-bascinet with the type of face guard hundsgugel (which means a dog’s head) plays the role of a helmet.

Later on bascinet would be out of use giving way to arme barbut in Milanese armour. Protection of neck and collar bone was enabled by chainmail aventail, which was attached to the helmet. Chest is covered with a series of plates. The lower part of the stomach and the groin are protected by chained armour. Back is not protected by this piece. It was supposed to be matched with chained armour. Shoulder straps consist of several segments which are put one on top of the other to enable better movement. Elbow pads were enlarged so that there was no need for a shield in the battle. Bracers represent segmented flexible gloves, the metal segments of which covered fingers on the outside. Greaves consist of double-wing metal plates. Hips are protected only on the front side.

A distinctive characteristic of this piece of armour and the Milanese armour as a whole was relatively big size of the plates.

This model has a variable option. You can choose at its discretion: material, color, size,presence of additional decor. Also remember about the possibility of combining various elements of  armor, for example cuirasses of the same type, and the other to her helmet. For maximum image creation of a knight in armor in Churburg style you need to pay attention to the other elements of protection - helmetspadded linersbrigandinesarm armours and leg armours.
