Does anyone here has any good sources into late 15th century Burgundian Armour?

There are some good depictions of fabric covered armour and open faced helms in the pastrana tapestries.

Even Surviving Helms from Burgundian origin tend to be mostly kettle hats.

Try the Swiss Chronicles -- some of them have interesting illustrations of Swiss vs. Burgundian battles.
