Historical Reenactment Clan for Mercenaries

Hello!

I've been playing the mod Mercenaries for quite a while, and decided that I would create a clan that is different from others. We would only be wearing historically accurate armor that is available to us in that mod, and being specific troop types with ranks etc.

What I am interested in is gathering as much possible information as I can about the time period between the 13th-15th century.
All the troops with their equipment, lords and their equipment in battle, and if they were an archer, horseman or footman.

So basically, I would appreciate a lot of images, walls of text, anything that could help me to make a really nice clan.
If any of you have an idea for a name for this specific clan, suggestions are much welcome.

Also, I would like to know, not just the name, but which banner should be made for this clan, so post freely some images.

And, finally, if anyone is interested in joining us and playing with us Mercenaries, create an account here: http://www.mbmerc.com/?recruiter=11292
And join the Grey clan, since after the new update it will be changed to the name of this new clan.
Of course, if you haven't made an account before :smile:

Thanks in advance to everyone who is willing to help me out, and possibly whoever is interested in joining the clan :smile:
 
French mercenary captain -  Капитан наемников-бригандов.
Наголовье наемника представляет
собой басинет со «створчатым» заб-
ралом. Тело защищено кольчугой и
бригантиной. Обращают на себя
внимание пластинчатые перчатки
с кожаными крагами и плечевые по-
лусферические щитки, снабженные
шипами. Воин вооружен рондельным
кинжалом и мечом, соединенными с
бригантиной цепочками, а также
тяжелой булавой с железной, раз-
деленной на «перья», головкой и ос-
трым наконечником.

A mercenary Companion man-at-arms, by Ian Heath, is based on Chroniques de France ou de St Denis, folio 186r, The English army
and the Knight in the Ellesmere Manuscript of Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, Huntington Library MS EL 26 C 9
He is portrayed as having very wide quilted sleeves which may be attached to his sides or back. The rider in the Chroniques de France ou de St Denis doesn't have quilting on the sleeves and not all the garment can be seen. Baggy sleeves with tight cuffs are shown in other folios (some quilted) and can also be seen on the effigy of Heinrich Beyer of Boppard, Germany of similar date. There are very wide sleeves in Chroniques de France ou de St Denis, folio 212r, Killing of the bailiff, perhaps this type of thing is what is represented?
Are there any other depictions of a garment like the Ellesmere Knight's, or is this a rarity?
