Azincourt 1415 reenactment. A low-destructible palisade can be a hot spot for epic CQ combat (last image corresponds to Jose Daniel Cabrera Peña's depiction of Alesia battle)

Plebeian hats (maybe the use of these hats should restrict body armour choices or viceversa, cuz I feel some strange combinations aka Chivalry might emerge if these are available)

Here is another collection of helmets & hats (Angus McBride, Dzis Igor and Grbasic, amongst others, have depicted the medieval infantrymen with lots of pictures)

Early motte & bailey examples (in a close to renaissance scenario, they can serve as an avant-garde / improvised frontier position)

New inspiring images:

Carcassonne:

Chateau de Castelnaud (wooden hoardings & balconies are my downfall):

Tantallon Castle (the external pointy bastion must have been added after the introduction of gunpowder & artillery):

Varak Boldogko castle (I find these perpendicular barbicans, like in the first image, very unique)

Some Sergey Popovichenko inspiring models:

Swiss Mercenaries (the ear plates seem unique & the barbuta slightly inflated helmet is quite badass)

Probably inspired by this image (the ear or temple plates' size is more plausible)

@SIEGE said:
Good pictures Corsario! but can we have a castle that isn't Italian for a change.

Lol. Only the 2 last places mentioned in this thread were actually Italian... Latin is a preponderant language, but most of the castles I've shown are from Spain, France and Portugal. Nevertheless, it's true that I have a stronger inclination for south-european castles, as I find them more integrated into the landscape than other more linear & roofed castles found in the north (which have been often turned into palaces during the last centuries).

That been said, I did some research and found the Irish castle of Trim (used as a setting in Braveheart movie):

I'd like to join the guild before this gets serious! That seed emblem is also growing with my blood I suppose! ;)

Here is a new series of images I gathered:

Lightly defended scenarios, but which could still require some sort of siege engineering or complex assault (a bit more than this image) could also be interesting:

Golden pointy helmets and halberds are utter rubish, but flail free to get inspiration from this image :P
