Frank sent the photos of his latest figures for his Burgundian war range.
Here the official text from him:
The pikemen had the lowest status in the military hierarchy, with the shooters, although they were tactically not insignificant and bore the brunt of the battles.
The one group is also equipped with puffed sleeves, an accessory, which emphasizes their higher status with the proximity to the ducal court. In Schilling's chronicles, these shoulder pads are often depicted as a characteristic of the Burgundian troops. Although the wearing of these shoulder pads was regulated in dress code. But we can assume, that in military clothing / equipment at the end of the period of Charles the Bold, puffed sleeves had a certain spread not only with guards troops.
So let us see these soldiers not only as lightly armed infantry in the battlefield. With a lavish, elaborately decorated livery and with a glaive, poleaxe, or a Lucerne hammer, you are able to represent with these figures soldiers in guard duty for the household of a nobleman.
