I think "torse" is an English terms and refers more to the ones worn over bascinets in slightly earlier period. "Mazzocchio" would then be the ones worn over bascinets in Italy. I think they may also be a difference in construction and material, but pleas don't quote me 😅

I decided that i need more Italian flavor, what better than some Barbute helmets. Im thinking of doing some more variants.

 I just bought a few packs of your other late medieval  heads,  I will definitely be buying these too!
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Great looking heads, I can't wait to get my hands on these, they would work really well for a unit of Italian mercenaries in Burgundian service I have in mind...
On the subject of headdress, I think the word you're looking for is mazocchio. Have a look at this: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/5a/Uccello_mazzocchio2.jpg from this article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaperon_(headgear), in the paragraph The capuccio in Renaissance art. Hope it helps :)
Thank you! Thats the word I was looking for

I've been looking for good sets of feathers for ages, so this is an amazing addition!  :o

The new bodies look amazing as well!

Brilliant! I was wondering about this, but hadn’t got around to doing the research. The rest of the wiki article is really interesting too.
