Also is it just me, or do you guys also feel the a theme in some (many?) of the recently shown items? I sense a strong influence of like late antiquity in some helmets (from like dawn of rome and ancient greece even) and shields? For example in that pic above the 3rd shield looks a lot like bronze aspis or hoplon to me.
This is specially present in occasional screenies of skeleton rework, they remind me a lot of what i imagine Thracian and Scythian gear looked like?
