He probably has a metal skull cap under the montero. Along with Rupert is his famous poodle Boye who was killed at Marston Moor. Rochester was a very popular and professional cavalry commander; he is wearing a high quality continental style armour with a Zischagge helmet. With them is a troop of very fancy cavaliers in fine clothing and quality equipment.This pack consist of 11 horsemen and a hound.
