More extras, and another ventail on one of Renly’s men, who also has a ventail. Very nice, very 13th century. The archer has a leather helmet over a mail coif, and the shape of the shield they’re carrying looks a bit like a pavaise, a kind of shield used historically by crossbowmen as they could set them in the ground in front of them and hide behind them while reloading their weapons.
