The most gracious Bone Queen has granted you eternal life. She is the creator and goddess of the Undead Flesh, and she demands the extinction of every settler! Without tiring and with the constant assistance of the necromancers, you will personally see that every one of the mortal settlers be vanquished.

You are one of the Bone Queen’s corpse warriors, a Loyal, and it is with your help that the Undead Flesh will one day reconquest their own lands.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s CQ Undead Full Legs is an essential for any person wanting to protect the legs while in battle. Consisting of cuisses to protect the lower thighs, poleyns covering the knees, and short demi-greaves protecting the upper shins, you’re less likely to take a pesky arrow to the knee--thus increasing your adventuring days. Due to the Full Leg’s austere style, this armour solution is particularly well suited for a dark and serious character with ill-intention. While specifically designed for ConQuest’s Non-Player Character group, the Undead Flesh, feel free to use this armour to fit your own character’s design.

Three leather straps--one around the thigh, one below the knee, and one to attach to the belt--are used to keep each piece in place. Made of 1 mm galvanized mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, these armour pieces are built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care. Please note that you have to purchase the "CQ Undead Arm & Leg Protection Set" [Item no:801412] in order to complete a full leg protection.

Available in size Medium/Large.

Epic Armoury metal works products should be treated with a wax or quality acid-free vegetable oil and kept in dry storage. Metal armour containing leather parts would needs a separate maintenance for the leather. Please read the "Leather Straps and Fittings" section below for leather cleaning and maintenance using leather-care products.

Degreasing and preparing your armour for use

When you open your armour, you may be overwhelmed by the smell of grease and oil. The oil has been applied to protect your armour during storage and transport. Use a degreasing product or mineral spirits and a dry cloth or paper towels to remove all the oil from your plate armour parts. Chainmail is a bit harder to remove all the oil from the links, but it can be done in much the same way. Wipe off as much as you can with a dry cloth, and with the remaining oil, you can remove the grease from the chainmail with mineral spirits or another solvent by spraying it on the links. You can also choose to fully submerge your chainmail in a degreasing product and use your hands to agitate the metal in the solution, this will completely remove all oil and grease from your links. After removal of the oil, make sure to dry your armour thoroughly. Strong, warm sunlight is great for drying your armour, but you can also use a hairdryer or a heat gun to speed up the process. Be careful not to overheat any leather parts when using a heat gun.

Cleaning

Moisture is the enemy of armour and chainmail. If your armour does get wet, it is important that you dry it thoroughly as soon as possible. After handling, wearing, or after six months of storage or display, all metal should be wiped with a clean cloth. Lightly oil the clean surface with a quality acid-free vegetable oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of the exposed metal. Allow the wax to dry for a couple of hours and then buff it lightly with a soft cloth.

Rust-Prevention and Removal

Store your armour is a dry place and check it every couple of months for signs of rust. If any is found, remove it by gently rubbing the affected spot with a mildly abrasive pad dipped in wax or quality acid-free vegetable oil. Epic Dark products are specially treated to resist rust, but should still be treated with oil and kept in dry storage.

Leather Straps and Fittings

Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.

You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
