Fellas, I just received a very nice handgonne via friend Tinker2, and was thinking it might be fun to obtain a helmet from the same period to go with it. Who has favorites from the 1300-1400 period?

Skagan, yes, still a fair amount of chain mail, and sometimes armor.

Thanks to India there are all sorts of inexpensive reproduction helmets for sale from vendors like: http://www.armorvenue.com/helmets-medieval-helmets-kettle-ha...
You may be able to find even better deals on Ebay for the same.

We are not doing too badly here for armour either but with these inexpensive handgonnes becoming available there seems to be folks looking for helmets next.

Any pictures?
