This old Dwarf is bold. He stands proudly in front of snow and stone alike in his blood-red helm and armour to match. Does a goblin seek to aim its spear? Let it! The Elder has no patience with foes who hide.
I used this helm as an example in my Friday Poll about HATS, and it hasn’t been far from my outfitting mind since. Dwarves can handle a whole lotta helm. They’re broad, brawny, noble sorts, and if any of the races in our beloved Tolkien mythos can handle helms and pauldrons with spikes sticking every which way, it’s Dwarves.
The primary pieces in this outfit are the Barrow-scout’s Helm, Shoulder Pads, and Boots, all medium armour, and all available at the “Classic” armour vendor in Skirmish camps. They’re inexpensive, as classic armour sets go: only 77 marks each, plus six medallions. The Scout’s Hauberk and Twilight Cloak, both dyed red, assist.
Tomorrow, a new House and Home!
