VETERAN ARMOUR - BLACK
Item no: 100505
Sovereign, Epic Armoury
You look upon your leading officer as he makes his way down the line of your fellow soldiers. Your fate and the fate of your entire unit is dependent on this veteran’s word, and you find yourself relieved not to shoulder such a heavy burden.
“We must fight!” your officer shouts for all to hear. You adjust your Soldier Armour, double checking the buckles as you listen to him continue. “For our homes and for our families, we will fight until we can fight no more!” With a resounding cheer, your fellow soldiers ready themselves for the charge. You withdraw your weapon, swallowing back your fear.
The battle has begun.
The bestselling Epic Armoury Soldier Armour is a handsome leather cuirass designed to protect the whole torso. Secure this armour tight over the chest and abdomen using four sturdy leather straps and brass buckles, with further adjustments available along the flanks by tightening strong leather cords for a perfect fit.
This cuirass is crafted to be especially hardy by stitching overlapping full-grain leather secured with shiny brass studs. At the neck, an additional leather plate serves as a gorget. Along the rims of the armour, the edges are bound with flattened leather cords. The effect is a solid piece of armour with lines suggesting a slim waist and broad shoulders.
Epic Armoury's Soldier Armour is compatible with all other Epic Armoury leathers and metal works, and is designed to fit various character types.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
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.
