You are laughing too loud. You realize it must be scaring your enemy, because no one wants to face you on the frontline anymore. They think you are crazed. Maybe you are, because the adrenaline of being in a battle has left you feeling drunk with exhilaration.
If no one will come to you, it’s time to bring the fight to them! One poor soldier desperately strikes at you and you feel the thud of his sword against your Celtic Lamellar, but it hardly makes a scratch. You see the terror in his eyes as your laugh fills the field and you bring the strength of your axe down upon him.
You are Raynor Ironshood. Let them fear you. Let them all fear you.
Epic Armoury’s Celtic Lamellar is a leather cuirass designed to protect the torso with a reinforced leather breastplate and stiff backplate. Made from overlapping, vegetable-tanned, full-grain leather, this cuirass is shaped to deflect blows while still offering great flexibility. Embellished with golden runic stamps and sturdy leather cord stitching, adjust this strong breastplate at the flanks where three long leather straps and brass buckles attach the front to the backplate.
This Celtic Lamellar caters to the Gaelic tradition, making it a great choice for fleet-footed soldiers and skirmishers. This armour is fully compatible with other Epic Armoury leather and metal armour pieces. While designed to fit a Celtic setting, the style will also match a broad range of worlds and characters, allowing you the freedom to create your own unique style.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase
It is best to start cleaning leather from the most delicate measures possible. Therefore, use a damp cloth with a little soap. If this is not enough - use a hard brush to remove dirt. Remove the soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue, and then use a dry cloth to wipe away the remaining water from the leather. Let it dry completely before the next maintenance step.
Always keep the leather maintenance after cleaning, because the soap will remove some of its natural oils. Apply mink oil, olive oil or professional lanolin-based fats to clean leather using a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of fat with circular movements. Wait for the fat to soak in the leather, then use a clean cloth to clog the residue. For maintenance, you can also use beeswax by heating it to a liquid state and applying it to the leather. Remember that the leather so preserved will be harder and significantly darken what sometimes is the desired effect.
