Knight Standing Ready
This warrior may look casually-relaxed but he is also ready at a moment’s notice to cut his enemy down. Great house, castles and noblemen have always had the requirement for additional professional roving Men-at-Arms. Travelling bands of mercenary soldiers would often be hired by nobles and great houses to provide extra protection and security. As such they would be dressed in the colours and livery of their ‘master’ or household... as this fellow and his fighting comrades are.
