Hi all,

Here's a fun challenge for you all that I really would appreciate some help with: What would be considered the latest fashion and newest inventions in armour in England 1410? I'm currently doing some research to get inspiration for my next arms and breastplate, but everything regarding armour at the time is helpful.

Thank you!

Heavy metal!

The best answer you'll get, short of waiting for Tobias Capwell to release his book on late Medieval English armor.

I'd say the latest in fashion and design would be a great bascinet, full encased arm and leg harnesses with the besicues ( probably spelled that wrong)

The great bascinet was the big new thing during the early 15th century, up until they had further perfected the armet Happy Great helm for mounted and foot combat...but kinda lacked being able to turn your head :P

The sister-site to effigiesandbrasses.com , manuscriptminiatures.com , does have a large collection of miniatures from 1400-1410; however, most of them are French instead of English.

There is a crudely illustrated English manuscript in the Morgan, MS M.766, a Speculum humanae salvationis from Yorkshire, c. 1400. It will soon be added to the manuscript miniatures site, but here's the link and a few highlights.

And here's how Tobias Capwell suited up in 15th century style, ca 1440-1460, English (A bit later that you are aiming, but still worth sharing). Shown with a couple different helms.
