Your look out upon your troops, staring into the faces of the soldiers who may never return. Their blood is on your hands already, and it is a responsibility you hold with a heavy, but resigned heart.
“We must fight,” you shout for them all to hear. You are a mighty figure in your Veteran Armour, a symbol to strike confidence in these soldiers. “For our homes and for our families, we will fight until we can fight no more!” With a resounding cheer, your troops ready themselves for the charge.
The battle has begun.
This bestselling Epic Armoury Veteran Armour is a typical western cuirass designed to protect the whole torso. The cuirass secures tight over the breast and abdomen using four sturdy leather straps--each riveted with decorative brass studs--and brass buckles. It is highly adjustable both at the front, but also with strong leather cords at the flanks.
This cuirass is crafted to be especially hardy by stitching overlapping full-grain leather with heavy leather cords. 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 Veteran 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.
