Laugh at your enemies foolish strikes when you defend yourself with the Yellow and Red Gastir Viking LARP Shield! With its extensive historical inspiration and detailed craftsmanship, this Norse LARP shield makes an inspired addition to Viking LARP kits. It adds immersion to both fantasy and historical gameplay.
The Gastir Viking LARP Shield has been made in collaboration with Lejre Land of Legends, which is a Danish center for historical and archaeological research. Then, the specific design was chosen from shields seen in the Oseberg Tapestry, which is an artifact from a Viking ship burial found in Norway.
This LARP shield has an EVA foam construction that is both soft and safe as well as sturdy enough for LARP combat. Protective latex coats the foam. Designed to look like painted leather stretched over wood, a faux leather strip accents the outer edge. A large yellow X covers most of the round shield over a bright red background. At the center, the shield boss features a dark steel tone.
This round LARP shield boss has rivets around its edges, enhancing the shields realistic look. On the back, the foam Viking shield has a realistic wood grain with a grip in the center, behind the boss. The grip will fit comfortably even in the hands of those not wearing armour. Leather wrapping gives texture to the hold.
Bring a bit of history to your Nordic LARP kit with this Viking LARP shield. With its historically inspired details and safe, sturdy construction, it is a must-have for shieldmaidens, berserkers, and all manner of other Viking warriors.
The Yellow and Red Gastir Viking LARP Shield has a diameter of 29.5 inches. Please be aware that this measurement can vary slightly, as it is a handmade item.

- Latex shields do need to be maintained to a certain degree. We offer a 100 ml LARP Protection Gel Silicone (MCI-3722) in our LARP Accessories section. We recommend you use the silicone on a regular basis. The silicone will keep the coating flexible and increases the lifetime of the shield. It also prevents the coating from drying out and improves resistance to wear and tear.
