French “Argoulets” were initially raised in imitation of the Stradiots which the French first encountered in battle against Venice at the start of the Great Italian Wars. Indeed the first Argoulets seem to have been raised in Greece, but by the period of our 15mm Italian Wars range, 1511-27, the Argoulets seem to have gone native and were Frenchmen. They had light armour, a helmet (in this period most likely an Italian sallet or an early form of burgonet), a sword and a mace, and either a crossbow or, later, an arquebus.
Our Argoulet horsemen wear the typical dress of Frenchmen in the early 16th century — a long jacket, square necked and fastened on the side with hidden hooks and eyes and/or points (leather or linen straps with metal points attached to them) threaded through eyelets. These often had broad demisleeves as well. English fashion largely followed French in this period and those familiar with clothing of Henry VIII’s early reign will know this garment well. Under their jacket they wear a chainmail shirt.
