    hello
    indeed an very nice figure.i find it worth to mention that the helmet shown is an pure tilting helmet.the Froschmaul like its called in german.the visorslit is placed so that the rider has to lean forward to see through it.in an joust shortly before the impact of the lance the rider stiffened the back again and so it was an sporting equipment which did prevent wounding through adversaries lanceheads.one has to think that even french king henry died by an tilting accident when an lance splinter did penetrate his visor.when you where the helmt and you ride with straight spine you see nothing at all.so its in no way an battlehelmet.the head was fixed with girts inside it and the helmet itself was straped or sometimes even screwed to the breastplate
    its doubtfull henry would have used an pure sporting helmet in field.surely he used the classic bascinet and likely an great bascinet above that.
    even if one considers that this helmet is depicted as crest on nearly all heraldic devices of later date its not worn in field.there are an fine vignette by soldiers showing henry 5.and this bannerbearer and here he too wears that useless sporting helmet.
    its an figure which does show the armour in field use.because tiliting armour looked at that date different.
    neverless i like it i would only change the helmet against an great bascinet
    cheers
