Iron Fortress specializes in manufacturing and distributing various Live Action Role Play (LARP) brands, with Epic Armoury as our primary brand and flagship product. Our mission is to excel in our niche and maintain our strong reputation as a dependable supplier and partner for LARP retailers, theatres, and filmmakers across the globe.
Established in 2008 by the proprietors of two Danish hobby chain stores, Iron Fortress was created in response to the scarcity of high-quality LARP products. This venture quickly expanded beyond the Danish market, ultimately serving customers worldwide.
Our Copenhagen-based headquarters encompasses both an office and warehouse facility.
Our product development team in Denmark focuses on creating functional, imaginative, and safe designs. Initial product designs go to our production team for counter-sampling, where skilled artisans bring the designs to life.
Rooted in our love and passion for the hobby, Epic Armoury is a brand created by LARPers for LARPers.
Our growing selection of innovative and high-quality products for the Live Action Role Play and medieval community is designed to inspire epic adventures for all. We strive to encourage a business culture that attracts and nourishes individuals who are energetic, committed, and who have a passion for our business and hobby.
By offering dedicated service and accessible products, we aspire to always increase value for our customers, partners, and enthusiasts around the globe.
We aim to be the worldwide preferred brand for Live Action Role Players, medieval enthusiasts, and the film and theatre industry.

Frivolous Fridays and Shadow Shield
On the last Friday of the month we gather to have a drink and cast off the weariness of our toils. We also seize this chance to engage in a legendary game known as Shadow Shield, a game conceived by one amongst our very own ranks. Together, we revel in camaraderie, forging lasting bonds as we test our mettle.
On the momentous occasions of extraordinary geeky events, we assemble our valiant cohort to embark on exhilarating escapades, allowing us to revel in merriment and camaraderie beyond the confines of our daily endeavours. Seizing these rare opportunities, we don our most magnificent garb, transforming into fantastical beings for occasions such as the much-anticipated Dungeons & Dragons cinematic masterpiece!
Holidays and celebrations
We like to embrace the spirit of holidays and festive traditions, such as Halloween, Yuletide, and Saint Patrick's Day. Our team relishes the opportunity to unwind and bond during these festive occasions, often venturing out for a drink or a meal together. It's not uncommon to find us donning Halloween costumes, leprechaun hats, or even rocking those infamous ugly Christmas sweaters, hoping not to get Whammed!
The Iron Fortress team recently enjoyed a fun and laid-back company trip to Mallorca, as a way to reconnect and celebrate overcoming the tough isolation period brought on by COVID-19. It was a chance for all of us to see each other in person, and we made the most of it! We engaged in team sports, explored the beautiful sights of Mallorca, and spent quality time bonding with our colleagues. The trip served as a great reminder of the camaraderie and teamwork that define our company culture, as we returned to work re-energized and ready to face new adventures.
