Greek Armour

Greek soldiers often wore light armour during the height of the Hellenistic period, making them fast and fierce warriors in battle. The basic components of Greek armour were the front breastplate, backplate, bracers, and greaves. Most Grecian armour was made of bronze or brass. The Greeks wore muscle armour, which created the perception of impressive strength and fitness to intimidate their enemies. The Spartans, the most well-known group of Greek soldiers, were feared because their incredible skill in warfare and combat. Spartans have regained prominence in popular culture today thanks to the Frank Miller movie called 300, which was inspired by the Battle of Thermopylae between the Spartans and Persians. Medieval Collectibles carries an excellent selection of Greek-style armour in designs suitable for re-enactments, LARPing, theatrical productions, and costuming. We offer Greek plate armour and Greek scale armour, ensuring that there are many fantastic pieces for history buffs and modern warriors to enjoy.
