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.

I agree - seeing these pics inspired me to get some - they are Black Hat/Gladiator Prussians from their Feudal range.
