Burgundian Command

I finally got back to doing a couple more Burgundians.
It looks like the face has silver on hasn´t, it´s my bad photography to blame :-D
I´ve no evidence (pictorial) that they carried drums like this into battle, but drums are mentioned in medieval armies after the crusades.
There´s a story that the skin from  Jan Žižka was used to make  drums, so that he could forever lead his soldiers into battle.
