German foot knights 1x4Bd. These fellows, like their mounted counterparts wear the transitional armour of the late 14th/ early 15th C. This was the first armour that saw steel plated attached to limbs thus allowing for greater mobility and protection than the chain mail of previous centuries. In this time period the "hounskull" bacinet ( helmet) was almost universal through out Western Europe.
German noble knights. Feudal and alodial the GErman states of the middle ages were a mad conglomeration of minor dutchies, powerful families, church lands, independent merchant towns. All of which owed fealty to the Holy Roman Empire but always held their own interests above any such loyalties.
