    I've seen him a zillion times in the movie.

    He was at the top of the mountain when the Rohirrim charged into Helms Deep at the end of TTT. He was on the right side of Eomer and Gandalf. He is wearing a maille coif and carries the bearded axe. He is shown in the charge of the Rohirrim when they first enter The Fields of Pelennor. Did anybody else notice him. He is once again shown at the final battle outside of the black gate.

    Did anybody else see him?

    A maille coif is a maille "hood" so yes, he did have maille on his head.

    Yeah I was kinda wondering about that guy, one weapon I definately never pictured a Rohirrim using was an axe but he proves me wrong every time I see him charge into the Deep...

    Axes were not uncommon for the Rohirrim, who everyone knows already use swords, bows, and spears. Many horseback riders of Rohan would carry a light 3-foot axe on their belt, for use in close combat against unmounted opponents and used to hack down upon their heads. That one individual, who is likely to be a royal guard of Edoras, took it to the next level and used a bigger one as his primary weapon.
