The elven army is an incredibly dangerous one, as its members have all trained longer than most mortals have been alive. You are a member of such army. Dressed in matching armour, you stand at attention with your nearly identical kindred, your Illumine Helmet like a crown thanks to it pointed crest.
There is no fear on your face as your Lady sits upon her stag and surveys the orcs before you. The orcs gather in their chaos, their numbers far out matching your own. But still you do not fear, for every elf is worth at least ten of the enemy.
Epic Armoury’s Illumine Helmet is a style of helmet inspired by the elven warriors of fantasy. Designed to protect the head during combat, the Illumine Helmet is sleek and elegant, as well as functional. The helmet covers the head, neck, and most of the face thanks to a fanned nasal guard--while still offering clear vision through the helmet’s Y-shaped visor. Overlapping welded plates along the neck also provide some flexibility to turn and look your enemies in the eye. Enjoy this easy to wear design, demanding attention on the battlefield with such details as the pointed crest and curved lines.
Similar to the popular Barbuta helmet, this high-fantasy armour is secured by tightening the leather strap beneath the chin, keeping the helmet in place. Made of 1 mm thick mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is finished with a brass coating that gives it a particularly regal appearance. With regular leather and metal armour care, it will last for many seasons.

If your armour does get wet, it is important that you dry it thoroughly as soon as possible.
After handling, wearing, or after six months of storage or display, all metal should be wiped with a clean cloth. Lightly oil the clean surface with a quality machine or mineral oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of exposed metal. Allow the wax to dry for a couple of hours and then buff it lightly with a soft cloth.
Rust-Prevention and Removal
Store your armour is a dry place and check it every couple of months for signs of rust. If any is found, remove it by gently rubbing the affected spot with a mildly abrasive pad dipped in paste wax, oil, or water-displacing liquid.
Leather Straps and Fittings
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.
