Hello,

All the time I see 15th century armour with disks at the elbow and knee. I was wondering what years this was common in the 15th century (I know this was done in an earlier period aswell) and what region it was most common in?

Thanks in advance! Happy

Robert, rondels on poleyns and couters were pretty much ubiquitous throughout Europe during the 14th and 15th centuries.

So it would be plausible to have a WotR kit with rondels at the poleyns and couters?

Certainly. While enlarged gard-bras (a really large version of a couter) were the hight of fashion during the WOR, the simple old rondels were still quite common.
