New Line of Bronze Age Greek Mycenaean/Achaean Armor

Matt started researching ancient Greek Mycenaean/Achaean history over the summer, studying both Homeric epics (the Iliad and the Odyssey) and has come up with several new representations of what may have been worn by Greeks in the Bronze Age over 3,000 years ago.  The new line includes a boar tusk helmet and lobster tail-style armor with bronze plating.  Matt has enjoyed working with bronze and coming up with armor that looks like nothing he’s created before that’s also true to the period, as it’s very sturdy and combat-worthy.  He plans to release impressions based on Homer’s descriptions of the Greek heroes, such as Odysseus, Achilles, Hector, and Menelaus.  He has several pieces done already and will be doing product photography in the next several weeks.
