Role play an equipment list


Pretty cool. The kits are overblown, one had two helmets. I believe the guy would have one or the other or none. Most of this gear would be carried in the baggage train, until the men formed lines for war.

Many of these kits would apply to Cutlass, which I recently wrote in the campaign book as 1200 to 1861. The striking difference between 1485, Bosworth Field, and the next major war 1588, Tilbury, shows the drop in armor. Less armor also meant more men could be fielded, far cheaper without the iron. One step more and the musketman doesn't even wear a helmet. It would come back later by WW1.

The one thing all have in common? A small knife. A tool, and aid when eating.
