The Weary Soldier

On this Memorial Day (and every Memorial Day), I thank my father, my uncle, my cousins, and many dear friends for their service and sacrifices.  You are remembered.

—–

Certhwin is a warrior of the Riddermark, a young man aged past his time by the troubles besetting his land.  He will always answer when the muster comes.

Certhwin’s outfit is a simple one, and available to any character under 55 (with the Rise of Isengard pre-order items, though those gauntlets and gloves can easily be replaced with other pieces).  I’m always interested in seeing the classic hauberks used in current outfits, given that my usual tendency is to cling to the Dunland cosmetics.

I didn’t want anything grand here; Certhwin is, like so many others, a young man far from home – a simple soldier, a warrior who follows orders and fights against terrible odds.

A toast at the fire, to those lost in battle.

He will always be certain his sword is sharp and his reflexes ready.

Today he lives. Tomorrow, he may not. Tonight, a fitful rest.

    • I knooow! Shoulders are the toughest part of these outfits for me; there are so few models, and so many are spiky crazysauce. I find myself defaulting to the same two or three models over and over. These, I like!
