The small pauldrons look fine to allow for mobility when fighting on foot, but then there's that lance rest for whatever reason, and a helmet so ugly it looks like it could be in Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

Hey guys! I post here in order NOT to make a new thread just for this. So, I wanted to ask, are there any good resources about:
-Serbian uniforms of about 1805
-Montenegrin uniforms of the same time
-Uniforms of the French regiments(and a comprehensive list of them) that took part in the second French Mexican war

Thanks!

Sir Neil O'Neill, (1658–1690) - 2nd Baronet of Killeleagh

Also notice the Samurai armor on the bottom left of the portrait!

"O'Neill's portrait from 1680 by John Michael Wright is historically significant because it is the only surviving contemporary presentation of the traditional costume of an Irish chieftain. At his feet is the armour of a Japanese samurai as a symbol of victory over oppression of Catholics; next to him is an Irish wolfhound as a symbol of Ireland."

That Batavian from a page back looked neat, is there much more in terms of depictions like this about the Batavian(s) (auxiliaries)?

Head of a colossal statue of Amenemhat III near a native woman, found in Tell Basta (Bubastis) by Édouard Naville in 1887-1889.
It is part of two seated colossi which were placed at the entrance of the Temple of Bubastis; due to their unusual facial traits, Naville hastly
called these colossi "Hyksos statues". This statue was repeatedly usurped by later kings such as Osorkon II. Granite, from Bubastis,

One of the naos (depiction of a temple or shrine) from the funerary temple of Amenemhat III at Hawara. The left figure, wearing a khat headdress and flexing his
arm across his chest in order to bring a sign "ankh" (life) to the face of his partner, is surely the deified king Amenemhat III. Therefore, the king on the right, can be
none other than his son and successor on the throne, Amenemhat IV.

The Etruscans, 9th–2nd Centuries BC, illustrated By  Giuseppe Rava

(1) Lars Porsenna, Lucumo of Clevsin, with chariot
This is a reconstruction of the Etruscan king immortalized for generations of British schoolboys by Macaulay’s poem Horatius at the Bridge.
While there would have been some variations in their equipment, it is likely that the heavily-armoured dynatotatoi would have had a complete panoply:
here, a full Corinthian helmet with high lophos, a painted ‘bell-shaped’ cuirass, protections for the thighs, and greaves decorated with embossed lion-masks.
His cloak and helmet-crest are in purple and gold, symbolizing his royal power. The chariot is based on a splendid example from Monteleone da Spoleto,
decorated with bronze panels representing the myth of Achilles.

(2) Rasenna hoplite of the first class, Clevsin
First-class hoplites wore defences similar to the Greeks, although produced by their own armourers.
This high-status warrior, copied from the Tomba della Scimmia (480 BC), has a Chalcidian helmet with
Italic-style feather plumes flanking the crest. His early muscled cuirass shows red-lacquered shoulder-guards.
He is otherwise protected by greaves, and by a hoplon shield decorated with a possible city blazon.
His weapons are a spear and (obscured here) a curved, single-edged kopis sword.

(3) Etruscan horn-player
The simply-dressed hornist plays the precious specimen of a cornu now preserved in the Museo Nazionale Etrusco, Villa Giulia, Rome. This bronze horn is smaller than the later specimens of the Roman Imperial period; derived from prehistoric ox-horn instruments, it is almost circular in shape (ex aere ricurvo). The cross-brace in the middle, to help the hornist hold it steady, was not always present.
