Good to see more armour and helm updates as my sword collection is also turning into a helm collection Laughing Out Loud

Polearms, early handgonnes / archebuse and shield updates might also be interesting. ( Nathan: Just a matter of time and resources until we have a few of those I assume Wink )

Very interesting Sean. Cool

Great stuff, Sean, now I have to go grab my burgonet and see what I can do to modify it to fit better! Big Grin I have one like Chad's, with the removeable buffe, but I want to change the cheek-pieces to scale over leather so I can shoot a carabine while wearing it!

I look forward to more of your articles and reviews, thanks for these!

Thanks, Gordon! The scale-over-leather cheekpieces project sounds like a great idea. We see lots of those, historically, but I can't think of a single modern production example. Too much hand labor, I guess. Be sure to post photos!
