“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.
Available in Black and Brown, and size Medium.
