Official Warhammer Old World cosplay gear coming summer 2024

Long-established LARP and reenactment costume maker Burgschneider will launch the Warhammer Armoury line in Summer 2024, starting with Nuln.

Warhammer publisher Games Workshop and costume maker Burgschneider have revealed a line of officially licensed Warhammer: The Old World cosplay gear. The ‘Warhammer Armoury’ range was announced back in April 2023; we now have pictures and video showing off a killer Empire of Man swordsman outfit.

Fans of Warhammer: The Old World should recognise this outfit as a swordsman from the city-state of Nuln, a doughty foot-trooper of the Empire of Man Old World faction. The distinctive slashed black doublet over red shirt and hose – with bulging cod-piece, of course – is a perfect recreation of the tabletop miniature.

Burgschneider is a German firm, with a wholly owned distribution subsidiary in the USA, that makes a variety of re-enactment clothing, fantasy cosplay, and LARP-safe weaponry. They even have a range of licensed DnD clothes, with options for all the DnD classes – though no prosthetics for those wanting to play a different DnD race.

There’s no prices yet for the Warhammer kit, but Burgschneider sells the extremely similar (historical) Landsknecht outfit at $64.99 for pants, $39.99 for slashed pant legs, $134.99 for a jerkin, $104.99 for a vest, $39.99 for slashed sleeves, and $34.99 for a floppy hat.
