>>529858 Not all plate was created equal. Even though most wore plate by the mid 15th century, not everyone had polished white, blue, black, or gold inlaid plate. Many poorer met at arms, mercenaries, and knights wore painted plate because they wanted to stand out but couldn't afford a good blue job, polish job, or whatever (one of the largest costs in making plate was the polish or blue job).
