Hardouyn, Soldiers

In the picture to the left, the killer is War himself, one of Death's three brothers-in-arms.

In this picture and in Hardouyn's copy to the right, the combatants both wear full armour, but in Simon Vostre's metal cut at the top of this page, the victim is dressed as a civilian.
